Finished in stunning Sherwood Green over Suede Green leather
Engine bored out from 3. 4 to 3. 8 Litre
A truly lovely, thoroughly usable example
The stunning Jaguar XK150 we are proud to offer you today is a tastefully uprated example and far improved over a standard XK150. Finished in the truly stunning colour combination of Sherwood Green paintwork over Suede Green Leather interior with the elegant addition of a Burr Walnut dash, giving the interior a far warmer feel. The car has been tastefully uprated over the years with many great features from a Nardi steering wheel and inertia rear seatbelts to more significant mechanical upgrades, the main being the engine which was bored out from 3. 4 to 3. 8 Litres. It also benefits from a 5-Speed Manual Gearbox, new alternator, Zeus 4-pot front calipers, stainless steel sports exhaust system, large capacity radiator, Kenlowe fan and Gaz Shocks. It sits on desirable MWS Chrome Wire Wheels whilst the driver sits on beautifully trimmed, modern Mazda MX5 seats in the lovely suede green, making the car far more comfortable whilst still retaining its looks. Also included are the original front seats and the original wire wheels.
You would truly struggle to find such a lovely example in such desirable colours, let alone one that has been so tastefully improved, making for a truly wonderful driver’s car with capabilities beyond the standard XK150. If you’re looking what’s both lovely cosmetically and a really usable example of the iconic Jaguar XK150, look no further.
The XK150 was the third and final stage in the evolution of the XK which was the first of the post-war ‘big cats’ and launched in 1948 at the London Motor Show with a production run spanning 12 years, 3 variations, XK 120, XK140 and XK150. The 150 was launched in May 1957, initially with a choice of fixed head and drophead coupé bodies. The open two-seater followed a little later, and was at first available only as left-hand drive for export, with most of these cars going to the USA.
The styling of the XK150 was modernised, and if the car had lost some of the lithe grace that had characterised the first and purest version of the XK design, it had clearly become more muscular. There were other worthwhile improvements. Although a ‘standard’ XK150 with disc wheels and drum brakes was quoted in the catalogue, it is believed that virtually all production cars were of the ‘Special Equipment’ model, which had wire wheels and four-wheel disc brakes.
Motor Sport magazine road test, October 1958:
“The excellence of the Jaguar is now proverbial and it was a pleasure to drive again behind the famous twin O. H. C. six-cylinder engine, which has won so many sports-car races for the Coventry manufacturer, while road-testing the latest XK150 coupe. There is no question but that the Jaguar provides very real high-speed performance, not only in respect of a maximum speed exceeding 125 m. p. h. but because roadholding, steering and braking are in keeping, Clubroom accounts of creditable journey times being no excuse for exaggeration where the driver of an XK150 is concerned. For an outlay of under £1, 800 the purchaser of this latest addition to the twin-cam Jaguar family buys more safe speed and convenience than it is possible to obtain elsewhere. It can almost be said that the engine makes the car and the smooth flow of power from beneath the Jaguar bonnet is one of William Haynes’ greater achievements.”
