I am the 3rd owner of this 1958 Jaguar XK 150 S. California automobile. My Dad's Aunt passed away and my Dad left it in a dry storage auto garage for over 15 years. He decided to give it to me. I had a British motor mechanic go thru the car from bumper to bumper. I purchased a clay bar and my friend and I shared the joy of bringing the original white exterior paint job to a satin sheen finish.. We decided to bring the car up to 100 Miles per hour on a section of Pacific Coast Hwy. In doing so I found the gas pedal to have been only half way down to the floor. At 100 miles per hour the car was just at a low purr. I'm 6'6" in height, so the car is a little tight for myself to drive. I virtually put 1 - 2,000 miles on the auto during my 3 years of ownership. The odometer has not turned yet and the majority of the 97,435 miles are from the time my Fathers Aunt owned it. All the rubbers, brake & gas lines, hoses, new tires, felt runners for the windows, etc. were provided by XK's Unlimited,CA USA. Within the last 6 months I had a $25,000.00 dollar premium paint job on the Jaugar. Had the prestine black leather interior completed for $6,000.00 dollars. Before the restoration I had Lance Coran, L.A. CA, Rolls Royce, Bentley and Jaguar Appraisar value the car. As-is condition $66,000.00 before, around $100,000.00 after. I am motivated to sell. I'm in the middle of purchasing a 1993 Rolls Royce Corniche lV conv. I need to put the Rolls in my garage. Accepting offers.
