Seller's description:

Number plate: KX150

Selling on behalf of a relative. Vehicle is located near Rangiora. Jaguar XK150. An historically significant NZ car in outstandingly original condition. Chassis: S 824075 DN. Motor: V1779–8. Body: J 7675. 210 bhp motor, B-type head, close-ratio gearbox with overdrive, limited slip differential. The car was ordered by New Zealand racing champion Bob Gibbons to replace his XK120 in hill-climb competition. Gibbons was also the regular driver of Jack Shelly’s D-type in circuit racing. The present owner purchased 45 years ago when odometer was 55,799 miles. Now just below 130,000 miles. Correspondence suggests that it was only because of Gibbons’ competition reputation and influence through the NZ importers, that the Jaguar factory was persuaded to interrupt wire-wheel assembly for a small run of disc-wheel cars. Sixteen were made . . . two reached New Zealand. It has been fitted with later “quick-change” brake calipers and an uprated servo. The voltage regulator has also been upgraded. The original components remain with the car. It was repainted in the late 1970s to remedy surfaces which had been polished through to primer. That re-coat in original black remains very good after 40 plus years, with only minor blemishes and stone chips. The car received a full engine overhaul approximately 10,000 miles ago, making it a thoroughly reliable and useable high-performance classic. A summary of all significant work, the original registration papers, and a file of Bob Gibbons’ correspondence are included in the sale. The car carries an appropriate registration number. For accuracy, originality and rarity combined with a unique competition history, this is an XK150 without equal in New Zealand.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
