Description

"The Jaguar XK150 was manufactured between 1957 and 1961 and despite having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150 was radically modernised. A one piece windscreen replaced the split screen and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the doors. The bonnet was widened, opened down to the wings and on the roadster, the bulkhead was moved back four inches to make the bonnet longer. In the interior, the XK140's walnut dashboard was replaced by a leather trimmed unit. The standard engine, the same as fitted to the XK140, was the 3.4 litre DOHC Jaguar straight-six rated at 180bhp at 5750rpm. Either wire wheels or disc wheels could be specified and the suspension and chassis were very similar to that on the XK140. These were high performance, well appointed sports touring cars and could cope with long distances with alacrity.
This attractive 'Coventry Cat' is presented in the classic combination of British Racing Green with beige leather. The original automatic transmission and 3.4 litre engine on this Jaguar have been replaced with the much more desirable 3.8 litre unit and four speed manual gearbox. Further enhancements include a Webasto roof, electronic ignition and a Kenlowe fan.Offered to sale with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until November 2019. This very usable Jaguar XK150 represents a very fine example of the marque indeed.
