Representing the XK150 in its ultimate configuration, with the 3.8-litre 'S'-specification engine and overdrive gearbox, this car was manufactured on 1st September 1960 and supplied to Henlys in London. It is one of only 69 right-hand drive 3.8-litre 'S' drophead coupés made. The car was originally finished in cream with black interior and matching hood, the same colour combination it has today, and left the factory equipped with chrome wheels, as today. Its first owner was D R Collins Ltd and the original registration was 'LW 50' (later '78 PP').
In 1964 the XK changed hands for the first time, passing to Mr Walter Goddard of Surrey, who was followed by Mr Michael Edward Malone in 1977. From July 1983 the Jaguar was owned by Mr Peter Brown (still registered '78 PP') until it moved to DK Engineering. The current (Dutch) owner purchased the car from DK Engineering in October 1995 (invoice on file). The present owner then commissioned a bare metal re-spray, which was undertaken by M-B Vardy Services in Hampshire between 1996 and 1997. The car then moved with the current owner to Holland where marque specialists Zwakman carried out all the mechanical work required. Zwakman's detailed invoice is on file and the car also comes with its original logbook; JDHT Certificate confirming matching numbers; DK Engineering sales invoice; current Dutch registration papers; and its Operating, Maintenance and Service handbook with Jaguar pouch in very good condition.
Presented in lovely condition, showing few signs of age following its restoration while possessing a lovely patina, this XK150 'S' 3.8 has been meticulously maintained by its current owner and is only sold because he is reducing his collection. The car is on the button and ready to use.
