This 1959 Jaguar XK150 is a left-hand drive Drophead Coupe that was built on April 21, 1959 and underwent a body-off restoration in the early 1990s. It is finished in black with a tan soft top over a red interior and is powered by a numbers-matching 3.4-liter inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes fender-mounted side mirrors, chrome knock-off wire wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, and a locking glove compartment. The selling dealer acquired the car earlier this year, and work has since consisted of replacement of the cylinder head gaskets, fuel pump, exhaust manifolds, tires, brake rotors and pads, and fluids. This XK150 is now offered with a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, restoration photos and documents, more recent service records, and a clean South Carolina title.

Finished from the factory in British Racing Green, the body was removed from the frame and repainted black in the early 1990s by Peter Gould of British Auto/USA in Manchester, New Hampshire. Additional exterior details include a tan soft top, fender-mounted side mirrors, and wraparound bumpers with overriders.

Chrome-finished 16” wire wheels wear two-eared knock-off spinners and are mounted with Coker Classic whitewall tires that were installed in May 2021. Stopping power is provided by disc brakes at all four corners, and the brake pads and rotors were recently replaced.

The interior has been reupholstered in red with leather front bucket seats and a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Amenities include lap belts, a locking glove compartment, and a dash-mounted rearview mirror.

A black four-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of centrally-mounted Smiths instrumentation that consists of a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset analog clock, a 140-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, amperage, oil pressure, and water temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 34k miles, though total mileage is unknown.

The numbers-matching 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six is equipped with dual SU carburetors that were rebuilt in 2007 and tuned in 2021. Additional work performed in preparation for the sale included cleaning and re-gapping the spark plugs, repairing the coolant tank, and replacing the cylinder head gaskets, fuel pump, lower radiator hose, and exhaust manifold.

Cylinder head stamping V6803–8 matches the engine number listed on the chassis tag as well as the engine block and Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.

The Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate lists the build date of April 21, 1959 and displays the original colors and identification numbers.

Since we now have a Heritage certificate for this car my first thought would be the UK car is a misread.

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?
