Guide price: £90000 - £110000. UK-delivered residing initially in the Isle Of WightSuperbly presented in Indigo Blue over Biscuit leather with chrome wire wheelsTotally restored over recent years to a very high standard. Fully documented subtle upgrades including power steering,  five-speed gearbox and stainless-steel exhaustOne of only 110 UK, right-hand drive XK150s producedLots of interesting history contained in the large owners file  The XK150 was the final incarnation of the XK series and it appeared in May 1957, as either a fixed or drop-head coupé. A more refined and capable machine than its predecessors, the 150 was noticeably different from earlier versions of the XK theme with a higher scuttle and door line, whilst the radiator grille reverted to the thinner slats of the XK120 but was altogether wider. The bumpers were deeper and wrapped around, a curved windscreen replaced the divided one on the XK120 and 140, and much needed servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes were fitted at each corner. However, the XK150 retained much of the mechanical layout of the 140 sharing the same 3.4-litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six, which developed 180bhp at 5750rpm.Originally manufactured on the 25/11/1958 finished in Sherwood Green, this stunning XK150 was registered on the 17th of December as VXT 240 and according to the original Buff Logbook, was destined for the Isle of Wight after it was distributed from Henlys of London. It appears to have remained there until around 1974 as, within the history file, there are a number of old MOT Certificates, two of which are from the Isle of Wight along with a selection of old Tax Discs and a Bill of Sale relating to our vendor's purchase of the XK back in August 2007.He was to use the car for a few years up until around 2011/2012, and obviously loved it, as a decision was made to invest in the Jaguar's future and have it fully restored. XKs are fairly complex to restore, and it was felt that only the best people would do, so the bodywork and paint were entrusted to Jules Bodycraft of Staffordshire and the mechanics and trim to Vicarage Ltd of Wolverhampton.  A disc within the owner's file, compiled by Jules Bodycraft, illustrates the ongoing care and attention lavished on the Jaguar's bodywork and, overall the invoices from all concerned amount to over £55,000  to restore this delightful XK. This included the supply and fitting of a 5-speed gearbox along with the power steering conversion.Now finished in a beautiful shade of Indigo Blue with a Black mohair hood, a perfectly contrasting Biscuit leather interior, and sitting on sparkling Chrome Wire Wheels, this is a heart-stoppingly attractive car added to by the classic soundtrack emanating from the bespoke stainless-steel exhaust system.Now registered VDW 70, this XK150 is certainly one of the best we have seen and with the confidence imbued by the recent restoration, represents very good value for money.  The car is of 'Collector's quality' and would fit nicely into a private collection, however, we can't help feeling that it really ought to be used on the open road, doing the things that XK150s do best.
