Produced in Jaguar's Coventry workshops in July of 1959, this left-hand drive XK150 Fixed Head Coupe was ordered new with the BorgWarner 3-speed automatic, as specified by the 'BW' at the end of its chassis number. The early history of this example is yet unknown.

Finished in black over red leather with matching red painted wire wheels and white wall tires, this XK150 has been in the current ownership since November of 2013. Little used in the past nine years, it will require recommissioning prior to active use.

A welcome entrant on any number of wonderful events, once sorted this two-pedal Jag will provide a comfortable, long-legged touring vehicle for those who are both long time enthusiasts and folks just getting into old cars who haven't yet mastered the lost arts of the stick shift...or anyone who just wants to cruise and let the car decide the gear!

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
