*Long term ownership
*Delivered new to the USA
Produced on Friday 29th August 1958, the Jaguar XK150S 3.4-litre roadster offered here is an early example of the "S" variant triple-carburettor model, and only the fourth known to exist with a chassis number starting with the letter "T".
This stunning car is finished in Carmen Red with black leather interior and black hood. The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms that chassis number 'T831234DN' was despatched to Continental Motors, New Jersey, USA in September 1958, though little is known of the car's life in the USA.
Re-imported into the UK in July 1991, the XK underwent a total 'chassis upwards' rebuild with right-hand drive conversion during 1992-1993 (photographic record available). The car was purchased by its latest owner in May 1997 and has been used frequently for both pleasure and numerous rallies, including four MSA Euroclassics, two Prix des Alps, many other touring and club events, and holidays throughout the UK.
A further engine rebuild was carried out in 1997 by Les Trafford of Trafford Competition Engines in Tewksbury, and between June 1997 and March 2000 the car
was fitted with many mechanical upgrades to improve its driveability for regular use. These included a Getrag five-speed gearbox (with ratios almost identical to the original overdrive 'box), up-rated disc brakes, power steering, and a Kenlowe electric fan, while the limited-slip differential was rebuilt.
This car is fitted with chrome wire wheels and driver and passenger door mirrors. The original painted wire wheels, knock-off 'spinners', gearbox, and radiator are included in the sale together with a huge file of papers and photographs recording all works carried out over the last 20 years.
Earlier this year the Jaguar underwent a no-expense-spared 'health check' in preparation for this season's events.
The car presents extremely well and has great patination only developed over the passage of time and is ready to be used and enjoyed for any touring events or shows. As was stated at the outset, this is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an early XK150S, an actively used example that has completed many excursions, rallies, and shows. They seldom come more honest and authentic than this.

Car to return to auction 2/20
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number T831234DN
Year 1958 XK150 S Roadster
The much-loved example offered here is a 3.4 litre ‘S’ variant as fitted with triple-carburettors mated to a manual/overdrive gearbox from new. Chassis ‘T831234DN’ was despatched to Continental Motors, New Jersey, USA in September 1958 and into the ownership of a Mr. W.G. Connell of Sewaren New Jersey.
Later being repatriated into the UK in 1991, the XK enjoyed a ground up restoration with the conversion to right-hand drive configuration. In current ownership now for 23 years, the XK has been an active participant in dozens of rallies and other events in the UK and abroad, including four MSA Euroclassics, two Prix des Alps, amongst many other touring and club events.
In between events the Jaguar has of course been kept in tiptop condition with visits to leading specialists such as CMC in Shropshire, and parts purchased as and when required. A further engine rebuild was carried out in 1997 by Les Trafford of Trafford Competition Engines in Tewksbury, and between June 1997 and March 2000 the car was fitted with many mechanical upgrades to improve its driveability for regular use. These included a Getrag five-speed gearbox conversion (with ratios almost identical to the original overdrive gearbox), uprated disc brakes, power steering, and a Kenlowe electric fan, whilst the limited-slip differential was rebuilt. We note the XK is fitted with chrome wire wheels and driver and passenger door mirrors. The original painted wire wheels, knock-off ‘spinners’, gearbox, and radiator are included in the sale.
In the last 12 months the Jaguar underwent a no-expense-spared ‘health check’ in preparation for last season’s event, to the tune of c. £5,000. Work was undertaken by specialist Grantham Bridge Motors and entailed a thorough inspection, service, and attention to the engine/ignition, steering, drivetrain, braking and numerous smaller items. A further £6,000 has been spent in 2020 on a cosmetic refresh, and as such externally the car presents as well as it drives.
Offered with a huge file of papers and photographs recording all works carried out over the last 20 or so years, and offered with a UK V5 and current MOT certificate, this is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an actively campaigned genuine XK150 ”S” which is on the button and ready for further adventures in the coming season.
