This XK150, VIN S835138, was manufactured in January 1958, and was delivered to Vancouver Canada, one of 3425 left hand drive fixed head coupes exported. It made its way from there to Ottawa, and back to the west coast in 2000, at which time it began extensive mechanical and body restoration.

Work has included updating of the wiring and other electrics, a new wiring harness being installed in 2003. At that time the steering rack was refurbished, brakes were overhauled completely, as was the fuel system. The car was then prepped for painting: all windows, trim, bumpers etc. were removed, with all body work being carried out as required. The frame was welded as needed. According to the restorer, very little rust was found, with all the usual rust areas being very clean.

The car was then painted during the winter of 2003-4. Photos of the car in the shop are available.

In 2006 the transmission was replaced with a 5-speed J5T from Mediatronics in Florida, the cylinder head was overhauled and the petrol tank was replaced. The brake master servo unit was replaced.

In 2010 the carbeuretors were rebuilt.

The car was regularly run until the summer of 2015, but has been driven very little since then. The climate in central Canada is not a good one in which to have a car like this. It has been driven every summer, but for brief periods only. It starts and runs well. It has never been driven in the winter or in the rain.

It can be described as having been partially restored. The interior is largely original; the leather seats, carpets and headliner would benefit from being replaced. It is a good, solid performer, and a great driver with the JT5 5-speed transmission.

My advancing years are not compatible with owning a car like this; I would like to see her put in the hands of someone who would cherish her and drive her as I have been able to, and derive the sort of enjoyment that has come my way.

In preparation for a move from Victoria, BC in 2015, the car was professionally appraised. A copy of that report is available. There are many photos of the car that I can provide via MyDrive.
