1959 Jaguar XK150 S
Asking Price: £184,950
1959 Jaguar XK150 S 3.4 Drop Head Coupe
A truly stunning example that has just come to the end of a comprehensive restoration.
Priced at £2,093 in 1959, the XK150 ”S” was equipped with triple SU carburettors, a revised cylinder head, and a manual 4-speed overdrive transmission. These last of their type, top spec cars boasted 250bhp and a top speed of over 130 mph, astonishing for it’s time.
This example was delivered new to it’s first owner in California, then later formed part of an impressive private collection in Holland, where it remained for some years before being subject to a stunningly well executed restoration costing well in excess of today’s asking price. The final stages of the restorative work were carried out by renowned marque expert Guy Broad of Coventry.
Finished in blue with red hide and black hood, this example is one of only 67 of it’s kind and is simply flawless.
Equipped with it’s original engine and gearbox this is certainly one for the connoisseur and is surely one of the finest XK150’s available today.
A louvered bonnet and bucket seats are a very welcome deviation from standard, as is a subtle power steering system courtesy of Vicarage.
When the previous owner began the restoration of this glorious motorcar, the emphasis was on originality due to the incredible rarity of this particular model, but he also had his sights set on long distance tours and rallies. What has been created could not be more fit for purpose.
Ready to be enjoyed by it’s next custodian, viewing of this very special car is highly recommended.
