Its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Production Record Trace Certificate states that this XK150 was manufactured in October 1959 as a 3.4-litre right-hand drive drophead coupé complete with manual gearbox and overdrive, and left the factory finished in Pearl Grey with red interior. Registered '7 AGO', the car was dispatched by Messrs Ritchies on 30th October 1959. When purchased by the vendor in August 1995 from Woodmanton Classics, it had been repainted red and was registered 'CFD 738B'. The recorded mileage at that time was 56,939. In September 1995 the car was reregistered 'MFO 137'.
We are advised that restoration has been ongoing since acquisition, with any work required being done each winter. The vendor had the engine rebuilt in 1998 and as the block was cracked, it was replaced with the 3.8-litre block '7B57024-8' (see invoice on file). In 2007 this engine was rebuilt again by VSE in Wales (as per invoice dated 26.3.2007) and the current odometer reading of circa 56,000 miles reflects the distance covered since then.
The interior was re-trimmed throughout some years ago, the original bench being replaced with bucket seats similar in style to D-Type racing seats but with hinged backs to facilitate access to the rear. Bodywork refurbishment has included rebuilding the spare wheel well, rear wings, front wings (most of), door sills and hinges, 'A' and 'B' posts, battery boxes, door skins and sundry small internal panels. The car has been upgraded with electric/hydraulic power steering, 12-volt alternator electrics, electronic ignition, Coopercraft front brakes, high torque starter motor, Kenlowe electric cooling fan and a stainless steel exhaust system. Other noteworthy features include a walnut dashboard, 16" Moto-Lita wood-rim steering wheel, plumbed-in fire extinguisher (in near-side battery box); a further extinguisher inside the car; and a lead-adding fuel catalyst. In April 2014 the hood lining was replaced together with some of the wooden ribs. The car has barely been used since then.
Finished in red with red-piped black leather interior, 'MFO 137' is described as in generally good/excellent condition and offered with current road fund licence, V5C registration document and receipts accumulated during the vendor's 19 years of ownership totalling almost £130,000. It should be noted that the V5C states that the car has been 'rebuilt assembled from parts some or all of which were not new'.
