1960 Jaguar XK150 3.8-Litre Drophead Coupé

£ 56,000 - 62,000

1960 Jaguar XK150 3.8-Litre Drophead Coupé
Registration no. XSV 153
Chassis no. S838988
*Delivered new to the USA
*Converted from left- to right-hand drive
*Original colour scheme
*Five-speed gearbox
*Numerous other upgrades

Representing the XK150 in its ultimate configuration, this 3.8-litre drophead coupé was dispatched to Jaguar Cars, New York on 1st November 1960 and was one of the last 3.8-litre models manufactured. Only 677 XK150 DHCs were produced with the 3.8-litre engine, making it a particularly rare variant. Little is known of this car's early history before it returned to the UK in 1990 and was converted to right-hand drive. Since then the XK has had only two owners, the most recent recorded keeper owning it for the last 19 years. The car is finished in black with matching hood and red interior - its original colour scheme. Various mechanical changes and improvements have been made including a manual choke; alternator conversion; upgraded front brakes; 15" chrome wire wheels; radial tyres; oil filter conversion and Mocal oil cooler; Kenlowe thermostatic cooling fan; and a five-speed gearbox.

We are advised by the vendor that the car performs well, with a very crisp gear change, and is in good condition overall. It has recently been checked through and serviced, and with a very nice interior is a car that can be used immediately while offering scope for further improvement if desired. It comes with a Heritage Certificate confirming the production numbers and a current V5C registration document. An opportunity to acquire a rare yet affordable XK150 3.8-litre drophead coupé

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
