Additional description from above auction:
Chassis No. S 836246 DN Engine No. V 6994-8 Black with parchment leather interior Engine: straight-six, double overhead camshaft, twin SU carburetors, 3,442cc, 190bhp at 5,500rpm; Gearbox: four-speed manual with factory overdrive; Suspension: independent front by wishbones and longitudinal torsion bars, anti-roll bar, semi-elliptic leaf springs to live rear axle; Brakes: servo-assisted four wheel discs. Left hand drive. This fully matching numbers car with factory overdrive is, we are told, an original California black plate automobile (June 1960) and has spent its life in California and Arizona. According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate this XK150 was built in June 1959 and left the factory in July 1959 destined for Jaguar Cars, New York at which time it was painted cream with red leather upholstery. Some years ago a restoration was commenced in central Arizona. Quite recently the car came into the care of a great Jaguar enthusiast and collector who is a South West Director of JCNA (Jaguar Cars of North America) and a multiple championship concours winner with his E-types. He decided to complete the restoration to his very own high exacting standards and has had the car repainted, new upholstery fitted and re-done the chrome work. At the time of cataloguing this XK150 had a recorded mileage of 41,620, believed to be from new. While the owner feels that, with the addition of a full tool roll, this stunning Jaguar would probably score in the very high 90s in a JCNA Concours he points out it would also be an ideal entry to many of the magnificent touring events around the country. WITHOUT RESERVE.

Ebay item 10/9/19
Current bid: $28,886.83 reserve not met 7 bids 6 days left in auction seller jcbfff, 42k miles.
1960 Jaguar XK 150 3.4 Fixed Head Coupe fully restored in 2002 and driven less than 100 miles since. I purchased it last winter at the Mecum auction and subsequently spent over $19,000 in service along with a $1,300 detail which included ceramic coating. I also upgraded the transmission to a getrag 5 speed (car includes the original trans).
My intent was to use this car for the fall winter touring season but my dream 356 came available and now I need to make room.
I would best describe this car as a concourse restoration which has mellowed very well since no one drove it. The car is in the Christie's Pebble Beach 2002 Catalog noting the same miles it has today and exceptional restoration by the head of the SW JCNA. It goes further to describe it as show quality based on a numbers matching California/AZ car originally Cream with Red Interior. I have observed nothing to the contrary, the car is authentic, straight and runs/drives extremely well.
Trim parts appear to be restored originals, not reproductions. Living in AZ I attend all the auctions and I look at a lot of Jaguars, and this car's GAPS and general body is exceptional. The chrome is in excellent shape with only the grill and original rear view mirrors showing age. The interior is stunning with fine wool carpets, the headliner is stunning, the seats have barely been used so they are comfortable with no signs of wear or compression of the foam. The dash is like new, with no discoloration in the gauges or controls. The only fault I can find is the leather portion of the dash on the passenger size is a little puffed for lack of better term. The paint work was very well prepared for the finish, no cracking anywhere. I do see little things in the paint from underneath the finish but it needs to be seen in LED shop lights to spot them. I have pointed out the three issues I see with the paint in photos, but for a 20 year old finish it's remarkable with deep shine. The chrome wires are pristine and I have a set of wide white Firestone bias ply's which come with. I installed 5 new Pirellis which have a vintage look with better performance.
The restoration was a frame off and the underside shows only minor wear and dirt, I did not detail the underside this is how it came to me. There are no stone chips, no scratches, no nicks in the windshield, and all the side glass is original and pristine. The spare has a new Pirelli, jack, lube, and jack handle, it is missing the tool roll (noted in the 2002 auction catalog)
