Old English White with Red Leather Interior

This particular car is a matching-numbers 3.4 liter XK150S that is extremely sound throughout. Its current owner purchased it in the Netherlands, where it had run several rallies including the Tulip. He imported the car to the United Kingdom, where he used and enjoyed the car for several years, including at Goodwood, and then imported it to the United States, where he has used it in a number of events including the Going to the Sun Rally. The car benefits from a number of thoughtful mechanical upgrades to make it an excellent driving example that is ideal for tours and events. Included in the upgrades are a 5-speed manual transmission conversion, as well as J.D. Classics sport fast road brake kit. The car comes with records from the last several years, showing regular maintenance and care, including the above upgrades, as well as new tires, new shocks, new engine wiring harness, rebuilt starter, new clutch, clutch hydraulics, and regular services. The total for this work was $26,060.05, and the original 4-speed overdrive gearbox is included with the car. The car is also equipped with a full stainless dual exhaust.

The car is structurally excellent and presents well. It has a nice even patina, with excellent solid panels and good paintwork. Close inspection reveals chips and stress cracks, but the panels fit and operate well, especially the doors. The chrome is very nice throughout, with no significant pitting, and only light scratches. The wheels are excellent, and wear new tires, including the spare. The lights are excellent throughout, including the correct tripod type headlamps. The car is equipped with Lucas 'Flamethrower' fog lamps. The glazing is good throughout, though the windscreen has wiper marks and light road rash.

The interior is in very nice condition. The leather has just the right amount of patina, and the remainder of the interior has been redone and is very nice, with excellent red wool carpets, and excellent like new wood on the dashboard. The dashboard upholstery and door upholstery are both very good, and the instruments are excellent and function properly. The various trim and switches are also excellent. A modern stereo has been discreetly installed and has iPod integration. The steering wheel is in good shape, including the horn button, though there are some cracks in the finish on the rim. The top is black canvas and is very good, though there are areas of chafing on the outside near the bottom corners of the rear window.

The engine compartment is tidy and clean, with nicely polished valve covers and carburetor float bowls. The triple carburetor setup is impressive and evocative, and the engine compartment is largely stock in appearance. There is an electric Kenlowe fan fitted to keep the car running cool. The trunk is correctly upholstered in red. The spare tire cover has been restored with new paint and a new leather pull strap, and the spare is in great shape, with a new tire. The T-handle is still present and the latches work correctly. The car has some tools still affixed to the underside of the spare tire cover.

The car is an absolute joy to drive. The engine runs well, makes great power, and sounds superb. The engine displays good oil pressure and does not smoke. The gearbox is excellent, with modern synchromesh which makes it a pleasure to use, as does the tall 5th gear ratio, which makes for good cruising at modern highway speeds. The chassis is solid, quiet, and reassuring, and the car displays excellent roadholding. The brakes work superbly with excellent bite and balance. The car has a wonderful coherent feel that blends the inimitable 1950's sports car feel with welcome usability updates to ensure that this is a pleasure to use and enjoy on modern roads, and would make an exceptional event car.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a wholesome and very sound XK150S. The most developed of the XKs, a genuine XK150 S commands a significant premium over a standard XK150, and a structurally excellent matching numbers Roadster such as this one even more so. This car has an excellent blend of vintage feel and modern upgrades to make it a superb driver's car, and it has been properly maintained to ensure that it should perform well on long distance events and tours. It is complete with many thousands of dollars of invoices, some tools, tonneau cover, owner's manual, and poster-sized service chart.

This 1960 XK150 S roadster is one of only 924 produced for 1960. The drophead sports car underwent a frame-off restoration some time ago, and it was subsequently modified with performance and safety improvements by its previous owner to endure road-rally competition, both at home and abroad. The 3.4L S version of the DOHC inline 6-cylinder engine is outfitted with triple SU side-draft carburetors on a split intake manifold for a factory-rated 250 HP at 5,500 RPM and 216 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 RPM. The engine is backed by an upgraded 5-speed manual transmission, chosen over the original 4-speed. An aluminum radiator with electric fan helps control engine temperature, and JD Classics 4-wheel disc brakes slow the roadster from speed. The shocks, clutch, wiring harness and starter were all rebuilt or replaced as the XK150 S participated in rallies in the Netherlands, Great Britain and the United States. Classic style starts with a signature leaper Jaguar hood ornament and flows out over the Old English White roadster body with Lucas tripod-style main headlamps joined by a pair of auxiliary driving lights. Front and rear bumper guards add protection. Stowing the black fabric soft top or tonneau cover reveals a red leather interior centered by a pair of low-back sport bucket seats with modern race-specification Pyrotect harnesses. Genuine burl wood and Smiths instrumentation grace the dash. Stainless-steel exhaust delivers DOHC 6-cylinder sound, with a concealed audio system providing entertainment to supplement. The Jaguar rides on 16-inch chrome wire knock-off wheels with Michelin radial tires.

Classically finished in Old English White with bright red leather and silver wire wheels, it appears that this 'Chocolate Box' XK150'S' has lead a long and interesting life. On offer from a deceased estate, it's more recent history is not available, however we are lucky to have descriptions from a couple of auction houses who have offered the car in the past. From its Jaguar Heritage, we know that it was built in left-hand drive during January 1959 and that the original chassis and engine numbers match those currently in place. We believe the car was exported to the Netherlands for a period and was purchased there before spending some time in the UK and was subsequently exported to the US. We have a description of the Jaguar when it was offered for sale in June 2011 and offer it below to help get a bit of a feel for the XK

"This particular car is a matching-numbers, 3.4-litre XK150S that is extremely sound throughout. Its current owner purchased it in the Netherlands, where it had run several rallies including the Tulip.

It is complete with many thousands of dollars of invoices, some tools, tonneau cover, owner's manual, and poster-sized service chart."

NB; This description dates from 9 years ago and, obviously, some things may have changed.

With the car is its UK V5C which states that it was first UK-registered on January the 1st 2018 and also an MOT dated 20/12/2017 with the mileage indicated at 23,598 miles. (The odometer currently reads 30,808). There is also a receipt for UK Import Duty, Import VAT, Admin Fee and Agency Fee totalling £4,290 (stamped 'Received') and an Idaho Certificate of Title in the name of Terence John O'Reilly and dated 26/08/2013.

As can be seen from our photographs and video this venerable Jaguar presents particularly well and, although not quite Concours, it's bound to be admired everywhere. With the thoughtful mechanical upgrades, it will be a pleasure to drive and equipped with 'Pyrotect' harnesses it may well be useful on club sprints, hill climbs and rallies. 

Sensibly guided, this is a delightful example of the final incarnation of the legendary XK-Series and is sure to offer its next owner many years of classic Jaguar motoring.
