Retains matching-numbers engine, cylinder head, and body
Wonderfully preserved, high-level, award-winning restoration
Accompanied by Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, owner’s manual, restoration photos, and awards

Completed on 19 June 1958, this XK 150 3.4 Roadster left the Coventry, England factory destined for Max Hoffman’s Jaguar dealership in New York. Originally finished with a Cream exterior over a black leather interior with a Fawn hood, this Jaguar presents today with a double-red exterior and interior. Significantly, the roadster further retains its matching-numbers engine, cylinder head, and body, according to the Jaguar Heritage Trust production record trace certificate on file. A large collection of photographs within the vehicle’s history file confirms two restorations were performed, with the first occurring in the late 1970s and the most recent occurring in the early 1990s.

This second restoration is responsible for the highly appealing state of the Jaguar today. As shown in the documentation, the entire car was disassembled and rebuilt to an incredible concours standard. Soon after its completion, it was honored in Jaguar Clubs of North America competition, achieving over 99 points in judging at both regional and biennial national meets in 1993.

The Dare to Dream Collection eventually acquired this XK 150 Roadster in 2012 and it has remained a fixture ever since. Wonderfully restored and with a matching-numbers engine, cylinder head, and body, this XK 150 3.4 roadster is the definitive classic fit for a show field or a thrilling drive on a tour.

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?
