Above auction description:
According to an accompanying Jaguar Cars Ltd Vehicle Information Sheet, this particular right-hand drive XK150 'S' 3.4 Drophead Coupe was manufactured on 29th May 1959. Finished in Pearl Grey with red leather upholstery and a black hood, it was desptached to Henlys of London a little over three weeks later. The numerous service records on file date back to June 1961 and show that the Jaguar was previously road registered as 'XMT 150' and 'MRA 363' before acquiring its current '1552 MW' number plate the following year. Thought to have passed through the hands of Messrs Aird, Grogan and Lines during the 1960s - or so surviving invoices issued by F.W. Mays & Co Ltd of Dorking, Surrey would suggest - the Jaguar spent the next twenty odd years in the possession of Chelsea resident, Jonathan Morse Esq.

Entrusted to the neighbouring Burgess Garage of Drayton Gardens, London SW10 between November 1970 and June 1975, the 2+2 seater benefited from routine maintenance and an extensive engine overhaul at 39,190 miles (reground crankshaft, rebored block, new timing chain, pistons, bearings, valves etc January 1971), while Classic Autos of Kings Langley were tasked with overhauling its back axle at circa 50,000 miles (July 1974). Fettled by Mr Morse himself during the 1980s, the Drophead Coupe was treated to regular oil and fluid changes as well as new disc brakes (1983), a Falcon stainless steel exhaust (1988), overhauled springs (1988) and fresh wishbone bushes (1989) etc. The early 1990s saw various chassis repairs (new L/H sill, steel floor / tunnel, battery boxes and L/H pillar / box channel etc) undertaken by Kat's of Klimpton, Herts not to mention the stripping and overhauling of the car's four-speed manual gearbox and overdrive units by Alan R. George of Clunderwen, Dyfed at 77,534 miles.

Enhanced via new clutch master / slave cylinders, reconditioned fuel pumps and a replacement petrol tank, the XK150 'S' was supplied to its last registered keeper, N. Lawrence Esq of Wayford, Crewkerne by Camberley Marine & Sportscars Ltd on 6th July 1993. Having part-exchanged an Aston Martin DB5 to help fund its purchase, Mr Lawrence commissioned the Jaguar Restoration Centre of Bridport, Dorest to rejuvenate his new charge shortly thereafter. Fitted with fresh door skins and sidelight pods etc, the 2+2 seater was refinished in its original livery / trim combination. Sporting refurbished chromework and replacement wire wheels, the car gained a new mohair hood envelope and crank damper in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Wren Classics of Shaftesbury, Dorset were responsible for carrying out some minor paintwork and brake system fettling etc during May 2003 (£3,519.98), while various old MOT certificates show that the Jaguar's odometer reading rose from 77,536 miles to 79,681 miles between May 1992 and September 2009.

Believed but not warranted to have covered just 80,000 miles from new, the Drophead Coupe's last major outing was a 500-mile round trip to the September 2009 Goodwood Revival where needless to say it was ushered into the pre-1965 Car Park. Able to boast matching engine, chassis and body numbers, this ultra-rare home market XK150 'S' 3.4 Drophead Coupe is offered for sale with operating, maintenance and service handbook (plus supplement), numerous bills / invoices and MOT certificate valid until September 2010.

Chassis Number: 827392DN
Engine Number: VS2047-9
Number of cylinders: 6

Year of Manufacture: 1959

This Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe is one of just 37 right-hand drive examples ever produced. According to the Heritage Certificate, the car was manufactured on 29th May 1959 and delivered to Henlys of London a little over three weeks later. The numerous service records on file date back to June 1961 and show that the Jaguar was previously road registered as 'XMT 150' and 'MRA 363' before acquiring its current '1552 MW' number plate the following year. Invoices in the history issued by F.W. Mays & Co. Ltd of Dorking, Surrey, show previous owners in the 1960s including Messrs Aird, Grogan and Lines.

The Jaguar spent the next twenty-odd years in the possession of Chelsea resident, Jonathan Morse Esq. It was entrusted to his neighbouring Burgess Garage of Drayton Gardens, London SW10 between November 1970 and June 1975. The 150 benefited from routine maintenance and an extensive engine overhaul at 39,190 miles (reground crankshaft, rebored block, new timing chain, pistons, bearings, valves etc in January 1971). Extensive paperwork on file shows significant maintenance carried out by Mr Morse during the 1980s, including regular oil and fluid changes as well as new disc brakes in 1983, a Falcon stainless steel exhaust in 1988, overhauled springs in 1988 and fresh wishbone bushes in 1989.

Further renovation work took place in the early 1990s, including various chassis repairs (new L/H sill, steel floor / tunnel, battery boxes and L/H pillar / box channel etc) undertaken by Kat's of Kimpton, Herts. A complete strip and overhaul of the car's four-speed manual gearbox and overdrive units by Alan R. George of Clunderwen, Dyfed took place at 77,534 miles. Further invoices on file in this period show the fitting of a new clutch master / slave cylinders, reconditioned fuel pumps and a replacement petrol tank.

The XK150 'S' was then sold to its next registered keeper, N. Lawrence Esq of Wayford, Crewkerne by Camberley Marine & Sportscars Ltd on 6th July 1993. Having part-exchanged an Aston Martin DB5 to help fund its purchase, Mr Lawrence commissioned the Jaguar Restoration Centre of Bridport, Dorset to rejuvenate the XK150 'S' shortly thereafter. Fitted with fresh door skins and sidelight pods etc, the car was refinished in its original livery / trim combination, with a full body-off respray by Wren Classics of Shaftesbury, Dorset in stunning Pearl Grey with red leather upholstery and a black hood.

Sporting refurbished chrome work and replacement wire wheels, the car also gained a new mohair hood envelope and crank damper in 1995 and 1998 respectively. Wren Classics carried out some further work including some paintwork and brake system fettling during May 2003, while various old MoT certificates show that the Jaguar's odometer reading rose from 77,536 miles to 79,681 miles between May 1992 and September 2009.

Bought by its most recent keeper from JD Classics, the car benefited from preparation and a thorough overhaul by JD Classics prior to being sold. Believed to have covered just over 80,000 miles from new, this Drophead Coupé's last major outing was a 500-mile round trip to the Goodwood Revival. Boasting matching engine, chassis and body numbers, this ultra-rare, home market XK150 'S' 3.4 Drophead Coupe is offered for sale with operating, maintenance, and service handbook (plus supplement), numerous bills / invoices and has been maintained to the very highest standards.
