Opening bid $75,000 reserve not met, no bids yet, 6 days left in auction. Buy it now price $94,500. Car now located in Marina Del Rey, California.

Sellers description:
comprehensively restored 1958 Jaguar XK150 DHC in Silver with a Dark Blue hides and Blue Canvas top. Bare metal nut & bolt restoration (with some photos) done 10 years, but almost zero miles ago. Fully rebuilt original 3.4 liter, 190 bhp 6 cylinder dohc with twin SU carbs. 4-speed manual with overdrive. No evidence of any prior rust or damage. Superb: paint, chrome, underside & interior. Superb engine bay & trunk, chrome wire wheels are as new. Drives perfectly with no mechanical issues. This would not be out of place in a serious collection & would be hard to duplicate.

Sellers description:
958 jaguar XK 150 Drop Head Coupe in Silver with Blue leather interior. 3.4 litre overdrive, C/W/W, subject to a nut and bolt restoration 10 years or so ago - but very few miles since. Would cost $100,000 plus to get anywhere close to this quality (and you'll need a car good enough to do it to - $50K) . Drive superbly. Fantastic body, paint, chrome, top, wires, leather, etc, etc. Inspections encouraged.

Previewing at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California by appointment.

As new the XK was supplied straight through Jaguar Cars of New York, to its first owner who is recorded on the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate as being a Mrs. E. Schleider, we assume on the East Coast of the U.S. This document denotes its original paintwork scheme to have been Pearl Grey, offset by a red interior and black top, while its technical specifications are confirmed to have included manual transmission with overdrive and a 9 to 1 compression ratio engine. Tallying the numbered components on this certificate confirms the car to retain its original matching numbers power unit today, as well as body and gearbox.

Mrs. Schleider's tenure is not charted beyond acquisition, but according to information on file by the early 2000s the car was to be found in Japan, where it was sourced by Symbolic Motor Car Company of La Jolla and repatriated to the US. Some photos show the car stripped back to bare metal, with date stamps of 1987 and 1994/5, suggesting that a repaint/refurbishment was undertaken prior to export/import. The Jaguar was traded by Symbolic to Chequered Flag of Marina Del Rey in the late 2000s who facilitated its next two transactions the latter being acquisition by the current owner in April 2009. It having been maintained by British and European Auto, of San Pedro, California.

In purchasing the Drophead, the consignor had sought high quality, matched numbers example for use on both coasts of the US as his schedule permitted. A report carried out at that point stated it to have been totally restored and to a very high standard, work which brought it to the present silver scheme, with the interior now a more subtle contrasting dark blue leather. The ensuing decade has seen approximately 1,000 miles a year of use, with maintenance carried out predominantly by Custom Transportation of Wakefield, Massachusetts, with a minor body repair by Nickole Auto Body Inc of Saugus, Mass in June 16. Work done over that period has included an engine and clutch rebuild, while the sensible precaution of uprated front disc brakes and fitting of radial tires and the modern additions of an electric cooling fan and LED taillights, have all enhanced its drivability and reliability. Recently inspected by Bonhams and found to be a nice clean example of its breed, its restoration only lightly aged.

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?
