Offered to the market is this original Jaguar XK 150 3.4 S OTS.
This particular car was built on the 29th of May 1958. Dispatched in June that same year, it was sold to Mr Felstraw from Utah, USA. All the numbers are correct of this XK 150 S and a Heritage Certificate is available to confirm.
The car still remains in its original colour combination, blue with a blue interior. Being restored in the late nineties, the car is still in concours condition. Although 16.000 miles have been covered since resto, hardly any signes of wear can be found on the car. The car has been enjoyed and proved to be highly reliable thanks to a restoration on the highest level. No expences were saved during this restoration and we can offer a perfect car now. All history and invoices are available just as a photobook including restoration photos.
The body of the car has been restored to original specification, all the original panels were used and no filler had to be added. This results in a very prestine body, which remains in such good condition after sixteen years since restoration. XK specialists know the weak parts of the body's such as around the headlights, around the sidelights and the reardeck of the car. This OTS has none of these issues and can be enjoyed for many years.
Resprayed during restoration in 'Indigo Blue', a chique and period colour for a fast fifties roadster. The car is equipped with a soft-top and a tonneau cover, both finished in black mohair. The interior is equipped with a period correct Becker radio and a walnut centrepiece dashboard.
Technically the car is also restored to the highest level, the engine starts in a fingerclick and runs very sweet just as these engines supposed to. The overdrive comes in very easy and makes this car good to use on longer trips. The cooling system has been improved and an electrical fan has been added. The front brake calipers have been upgraded aswell to make this car better in use instead of being a true 'trailer queen'.
All in all, this is the perfect chance to not only own a beautiful piece of history but also to own a highly useable roadster which can be enjoyed throughout the year.
