One of two Jaguar XK150 Fixed-head Coupes in our sale today, this lovely Carmen Red example was first registered in September 1958 and is an original UK market car. It is fitted with the 190bhp 3.4-litre twin carb XK engine which gave a quoted top speed of 125mph and a 0-60 time of 8.3 seconds. This is mated to a four speed gearbox with the desirable option of overdrive.
WWR 352 has been in the current ownership for the last 30 years and has been sympathetically restored and maintained throughout that time. Work over the years has included a reconditioned engine and gearbox, interior retrim in red hide, new springs and shock absorbers, rechroming, new stainless steel exhaust and paintwork as necessary.
Always in regular use, the car is said to be in excellent running order and can confidently be driven anywhere. Just issued with a fresh MOT prior to the sale, this is a lovely well-cared for car, from long-term ownership, that is ready to be used and enjoyed.
