Description

This stunningly-presented XK150 is a genuine righthand drive home market example that has not only been extensively restored and upgraded in recent years, but converted from Fixed to Drophead Coupe coachwork. The original engine has been supplanted by an S specification unit fed by a trio of 2 inch SU carburettors. The motor also benefits from: twin fuel pumps: alternator; high torque starter motor; 4.2-litre water pump conversion; high efficiency radiator core; stainless steel exhaust system; and battery isolator switch. It nowadays drives through a Getrag five-speed manual gearbox to an S type rear axle with limited slip differential.
The braking system features four-pot Coopercraft front calipers and Aeroquip hoses, while the suspension has been improved with competition bushes on the front and Spax adjustable dampers all round. The Jaguar rides on 15 inch E-Type chrome wire wheels shod with 205 x70 Vredestein Classic Sprint tyres. Other improvements of note include power steering and a 16 inch wood rim steering wheel. 'TCA 740' has been finished using modern paints and rust-proofing materials and is presented with British Racing Green bodywork complemented by Magnolia-coloured leather interior trim, Tan hood and hood envelope, and Dark Green carpet. A superior example fully suited to today's roads and traffic.
