Car to be at auction 3/15
www.auctionsamerica.com/events/feature-lots.cfm

Auction description:
1961 Jaguar XK 150 Drophead Coupe
Mundt Collection
Lot No. 176
To be offered on Friday, March 27, 2015
Estimate: $ 70,000 - $ 90,000

Beautifully presented in red with a black soft-top and black interior; this XK 150 is powered by a 3.8-liter inline six-cylinder engine with dual overhead cams and twin carburetors matched to the four-speed manual transmission. As previously cited, the braking is four-wheel discs and the car has two-prong knock-off caps for fitting the chrome wire wheels with whitewall tires. The cockpit exhibits a woodgrain and leather dashboard that has Smiths instrumentation. Dual exhaust and dual fender-mounted mirrors add to the period flavor.

Car to return to auction 3/16
motostalgia.com/car-detail/

Auction description:
Estimate: $120,000 -­ $140,000
Vin: S837285
Engine: 3,442cc DOHC in­line 6­cyl.
2xSU Carburetors/190 bhp
4­Speed Manual Transmission
Four Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Mileage: 72,670
Ultimate in Sport and Luxury
Striking and Attractive Color Scheme
Mechanically Sorted Out

The Car: Finished in red with black soft trim, a black canvas top, and combined with knock­off chrome wire wheels this car exudes an appearance that it's ready to go, top down of course to enjoy the scenery. Described by our consignor as "driver­level", this XK150 isn't a trailer­queen, but you can certainly be proud of with its deep reflective chrome bumpers and interior which features a wood trim instrument panel looking fresh and fitted with a full set of Smiths gauges and meters. The top is clean and fully padded providing a cozy ride for two. While this XK150 was born with the 3.8 Liter six, at some point a earlier 3.4 Liter engine was installed. It is fitted with SU carbs, and the proper cylinder head plus the S.E. spec dual exhaust. This is a car that needs to be driven and enjoyed, and is sure to turn admiring eyes in its direction wherever it goes.

Lot 29

1961 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe

The Amelia Island Auction|29 February 2024

Chassis no. S837285

3,442cc DOHC 6-Cylinder Engine (See Text)

2 SU Carburetors

190bhp at 5,500 rpm

4-Speed Manual Transmission with Overdrive

Independent Front with Live Rear Axle Suspension

4-Wheel Disc Brakes

*Well-presented in beautiful red over black leather

*Preserved professional restoration

*Final year of the XK150

*Usable tour car

Upon acquiring this XK150 Drophead Coupe, the consignor sought a high-quality example for an enjoyable and reassuring driving experience. This well-maintained car is finished in a beautiful and sporty livery of bright red over black leather interior and a black soft top. The appealing and tidy interior features authentic details including a wood grain and leather dash, Smiths gauges and a large four spoke steering wheel. With spacious seating and pleasing amenities, the luxurious cockpit of the Drophead Coupe ensures every trip is enjoyable and comfortable.

The tidy and crisp body wears attractive brightwork, with chrome wire wheels wrapped in Firestone tires. This XK also features dual exhaust and dual fender mounted mirrors to finish off the sporty look of the exterior. Beneath the bonnet is a well-maintained 3.4-liter XK inline six engine that presents quite nicely, showing some age-appropriate patina. While this car would have initially featured the later 3.8-liter version, the engine was changed at some point in its life. The engine is reported to run well, and the consignor is pleased to report this XK150 is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next caretaker. A factory operator's manual is included in the sale.

One of the most practical sporting models of its generation, the XK150 Drophead Coupe affords the luxury of 2+2 motoring with a convertible top for all weather contingencies and as such, is a great option for the myriad of collector car tours which represent one of the best ways to enjoy historic motoring.

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.
