Car now offered at:
Jaguar XK150 DHC 1957 for sale
This is a very early car built in September 1957 and originally sold in New York, USA. The car was then shipped back to the UK in the 1960's and has been here ever since. This XK150 has undergone extensive work, including a right hand drive conversion and an uprated automatic gearbox.
Mechanically this is an excellent XK. The suspension has been set up extremely well and the car is a joy to drive, the 3.4 engine has recently been treated to a rebuild and has all the right upgrades (Kenlowe electric fan and a header tank). Disc brakes and power steering finish this car off to make it a fantastic and comfortable car to drive, relax and enjoy.
Further to the mechanical upgrades the car is also fitted with an alternator, an alarm and immobilizer, inertia seatbelts and a period radio with iPod connection. This is a car you could comfortably and confidently drive for hours on end with a smile on your face all the way.

Hi I loved this car, it belonged to lovely lady called Kim Mcroberts/Swartz back in the eighties in a village in Wiltshire called corton. It was my weekend job at the age of 12 to drive it out of the garage and clean it. Finances was poor then and I used to cleaned the surface rust with a Brillo pad! It was lhd then with an auto box which when I was taken out in it always made me feel I was the driver. Sadly Kim died of cancer and I lost track of the car. So good to see her in such fab condition.
