1958 Jaguar XK150S 3.4 Litre Roadster For Sale

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1958 Jaguar XK150S 3.4 Litre Roadster For Sale. Registration: 655UYG Chassis no: T831551DN Engine no: VS1341-9 Body no: F16567 The ultimate expression of Jaguar’s fabulous ‘XK’ series of sports cars arrived in 1957. The XK150 was a progressive development of the XK120 and XK140, retaining the same basic chassis, 3.4-liter engine and four-speed Moss transmission of its predecessors. It benefited from a new, wider body that provided increased interior space and improved visibility, courtesy of a single-piece wrap-around windscreen that replaced the XK140’s divided screen. Cleverly, the new body used many XK120/140 pressings, the increased width being achieved by means of a 4”-wide central fillet. A higher front wing line and broader radiator grille were other obvious differences, but the new model’s main talking point was its Dunlop disc brakes. Fade following repeated stops from high speed had been noted on the earlier, drum-braked cars, but now the XK had stopping power to match its prodigious straight-line speed. The XK150 was available at first only in fixed and drophead coupé forms; the open roadster version didn’t appear until the following year. At 190bhp, the engine’s maximum power output was identical to that of the XK140, so performance was little changed. ‘Special Equipment’ and ‘S’ versions came with 210 and 250bhp respectively, the latter delivering an astonishing 0-60mph time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 136mph. This was achieved by the introduction of the Weslake-developed ‘straight-port’ cylinder head, high-compression pistons, triple 2” SU carburetors and twin electric fuel pumps. The car regularly recorded in excess of 130mph in magazine road tests. ‘The Jaguar XK150 is undeniably one of the world’s fastest and safest cars. It is quiet and exceptionally refined mechanically, docile and comfortable… we do not know of any more outstanding example of value for money,’ declared The Autocar. This fantastic XK150S Roadster has in recent years had a full ground up restoration to the highest of standards and has covered just 425 miles since. The end result is truly remarkable with all the body gaps being millimetre correct. The underneath and wheel arches are as immaculate as the exterior which has an almost faultless high polish finish. Underneath the bonnet the same quality remains, not just to look at though, as soon as soon as you turn the key the 3.4 Litre Tri-Carb engine fires up and runs beautifully even from cold. Various modern upgrades have been fitted for ease with modern motoring, these include electronic ignition and power steering. A true masterpiece that really does need to be seen, this Jaguar is currently located in the owners climate controlled garage so please call and arrange a viewing. A gallery of large high-resolution pictures may be viewed on our website. Richard Biddulph 07967 260673 We accept Credit/Debit Cards. Part Exchange welcome. Weekend & evening viewings OK.
