car on auction: www.historics.co.uk/buying/auctions/2015-11-28/car/ref-8-jaguar-xk150-s-spec.asp ...

Lot 277 - 1959 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupé to S-Specification

Registration tbc

Chassis Number S838545DN

Engine Number V6803-8

Odometer reading 47,753 miles

Estimate £65,000 - £85,000

SOLD £95,200

if I see the photos the car must be converted from LHD to RHD. Could be possible because they made a lot on this Jag. Still a beauty.

Description: It is always enormously satisfying, when purchasing a classic Jaguar, to have the words, 'Twyford Moors' emblasoned across the history file. And so it is with this considered example of the marque.

Languishing as it was for many years in a barn, it was discovered by the Hampshire-based specialists in 1995 and rebuilt from top to bottom according to detailed specifications from the current vendor.

Not only was the car stripped and re-painted with selected re-chroming, but a Getrag five-speed gearbox was installed for more flexible long-distance driving. This was then mated to a full 3.8 litre engine with a ported and polished head, an unleaded conversion, triple HD8 carburettors and the correct under-wing 'S' conversion to a full stainless-steel exhaust.

Suspension takes the form of four Koni shock absorbers with a four-pot front disc-brake conversion, chrome wire-wheels and Avon radial tyres and power steering to take the strain.

The interior has been re-trimmed to include a walnut dashboard and door cappings, inertia reel seatbelts to the front and bespoke seatbelts to the rear for children. This great-looking example was designed to be used and, to this end, it also benefits from an aluminium radiator (and header tank), a full Tilton pedal-box conversion, up-graded brakes and a modern/period-style audio system (CD/radio) with four speakers. There are many more additional details to be found within the history file with the total cost of these intelligent modifications in excess of £32,000. Indeed Ian Mills of Twyford Moors remembers the car and roughly quoted £130,000+vat to provide a car of this specification today.

This XK150 represents a true driver's car, owned for the last 16 years by one family and thoroughly enjoyed. Forming part of larger collection, it is now ready for its next owner and some further use, such as the great range of national or international rallies currently on offer; something it has been perfectly designed for.

Observation of the car at viewing: Converted to RHD now has a triple-carburettor manifold. It has the S symbol on the doors but not originally a 3.4S. Worn interior and hood, 15” wheels, the veneer on the door cappings chipped

Excellent history folder

It is always enormously satisfying, when purchasing a classic Jaguar, to have the words, 'Twyford Moors' emblazoned across the history file. And so it is with this considered example of the marque. Languishing as it was for many years in a barn, it was discovered by the Hampshire-based specialists in 1995 and rebuilt from top to bottom according to detailed specifications from the then owner. The car was stripped and re-painted with selected re-chroming, but a Getrag five-speed gearbox was installed for more flexible long-distance driving. This was then mated to a 3.8 litre engine with a ported and polished head, an unleaded conversion, triple HD8 carburettors and the correct under-wing 'S' conversion to a full stainless-steel exhaust. Suspension takes the form of four Koni shock absorbers with a four-pot front disc-brake conversion, chrome wire-wheels and Avon radial tyres and power steering to take the strain. The interior has been retrimmed to include a walnut dashboard and door cappings, inertia-reel seatbelts to the front and bespoke seatbelts to the rear for children. This great-looking example was designed to be used and, to this end, it also benefits from an aluminium radiator, header tank and up-graded brakes.

The vendor purchased the car from ourselves in 2015 and sent the car back to Twyfords with the instruction to put the car into top condition. This required an aluminium fuel tank, clutch slave cylinder, brake servo, hi-torque starter motor, differential pinion oil seal and gaskets to be fitted at a cost of £9,200. More recently the car has been lovingly cared for by The Jag Workshop in Ealing, they have carried out service work, reconditioned the power steering pump, rebuilt the cylinder head, fitted an electronic distributor and other mechanical work totalling £8,500. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a great history folder, this XK150 is clearly a very well sorted example, presenting in excellent order throughout.

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?
