This SE-specification XK 150 has spent the majority of its life in Denmark, the country from where it is offered today. According to the accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, it was completed by the factory in on February 5 of 1959, fitted with a manual gearbox and finished in Carmen Red over a black interior.

Originally built for the U.S. market and delivered to Jaguar Cars New York, it did not remain in the U.S. for long and was first registered in Denmark in the 1960’s. There, the car was owned by an individual residing in Zealand who retained the car for a number of years before being sold in the mid-1990’s. Passing into the heads of another Danish Jaguar enthusiast, he entrusted the car to a Danish Jaguar specialist to be fully restored, which was completed in 2015. At least €25,000 was spent on this work. The XK 150 benefits from a rebuilt engine boasting a five-speed manual transmission and is fitted with chrome wire wheels.

Finished in dark blue paintwork over a beige leather interior, this is an attractive XK 150 would surely make a wonderful driver, thanks to its upgraded transmission.
