Car to be at auction 6/15

Auction description:
164 - 1960 Jaguar XK150 SE Drop Head Coupe
Registration SSU 788
Chassis Number S827638DN
Engine Number V76068
Estimate £65,000 - £72,000

This 1960 Jaguar XK150 SE has been in the same ownership since 1988 and is now being offered as part of a deceased estate. Although bearing a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150 was radically revised. A one-piece windscreen replaced the split screen, and the wing line no longer dropped so deeply at the doors. The front parking lights, which were located at the top of the wings, featured a red light to remind the driver the lights were on.

According to the original buff log book, the Jaguar was first registered in September 1960, in Kirkowen, Belfast and only four keepers are recorded including the deceased gentleman who remains the last name on the log book. It is rare to find an XK that has been for the most part unmolested and has certainly not had the soul restored out of it. There are a very few blemishes to the coachwork which is resplendent in white and certainly shows off the excellent chrome work and chrome wire wheels. The interior has also been untouched and, although the red leather has that certain patina, the interior is in very good order and serviceable.

As well as the original buff log book and instruction manual, the history file shows works carried out by the Jaguar specialists M. Barclay and Hoffman's of Henley amongst others. Since purchase by its enthusiastic owner in 1988, this XK150 DHC has been well loved and cared for, only being used on dry days for trips to local car shows and occasions. We are advised that this Jaguar will arrive at the sale with a current UK V5 registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate.

This Jaguar XK150 SE DHC offers the chance to own a very honest and largely original car that is not often found these days.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
