Ebay item 8/3/18
Opening bid £45,000, no reserve, no bids 3 days left in auction, seller hilltop6955, 11k miles.
1958 Jaguar XK150 Open Two Seater 3.4 with overdrive. This is fresh from a local barn with just 11,000 original miles. It was last on the road in 1964!!! We have the last registration on inspection from 1964 before it was parked. Potentially one family owned (we are waiting to hear back from heritage.) The car was originally a maroon over black interior the previous owner had it painted to a British racing green in 1963. The car is well optioned with wire wheels and rare overdrive. Obviously will need full restoration or would make a great museum piece. The car rolls steers and goes into gear for easy transport.

Recently purchased car from Hilltop autos in Hanover , currently being shipped over from New Jersey. The plan is to fully restore the car and convert to RHD. Will keep you posted and add photos as appropriate if any one is interested.
