*Powerful and rare S specification model

*The most refined of the original XKs
This XK150s roadster from the first year of production represents the most desirable variant of the XK150 line up. The "S" specification motor pumps out 250hp and the sleek lightweight roadster coachwork this the ultimate combination. With factory overdrive this 150 will happily charge down the road at modern highway speeds. A well-designed top with proper side windows increase their versatility.
Factory finished in Cream over black this 150S was dispatched from the works on September 24, 1958 to Jaguar Cars, New York. Its first owner was Gordon Dillinger.
Acquired by the vendor a score of years ago as a non-running machine, it has been extensively refurbished since being purchased. The body was stripped to bear metal and repainted in the original color, the chrome was replated, and a new interior and top were installed. Mechanical work, completed by Speedwell Engineering in Canton, Georgia, included a new wiring harness, engine tuning, freshened brake rotors and pads, and more. A binder of receipts documents the interior and mechanical work completed. This 150s is a fully numbers matching example that is verified with included Jaguar Heritage Certificate. This Jaguar is offered with an original tool kit and original Jaguar owner's handbook.
XK150s are recognized of one of the most desirable and usable Jags of their era. With potent performance and refined comfort they continue to be some of the most coveted Jaguars. Offered from private ownership this represents excellent value in a premier collector Jaguar.
