    This 1958 Jaguar XK150 fixed-head coupe was built on September 16, 1957, and was first sold in Washington State. It was acquired by the current owner in 2004 and subsequently refurbished between 2014 and 2016. The car is finished in cream over red leather upholstery, and power comes from a numbers-matching 3.4L inline-six that is paired with a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Features include Koni shocks, a stainless steel exhaust system, four-wheel disc brakes, an aluminum fuel tank and electric fuel pump, an aluminum-alloy radiator, J-Lite halogen headlights, an under-dash kill switch, and a Moto-Lita steering wheel. This XK150 FHC is now offered on behalf of the current owner in Texas with factory books, service manuals, a partial tool kit, a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, refurbishment photos and records, a car cover, a battery tender, and a clean Arkansas title in the owner’s name.

    Delivered from the factory in cream, the car underwent a color change to white under previous ownership before it was placed on a rotisserie, received bodywork, and was repainted in its current cream in the 2010s. A new windshield, as well as body and window seals, were installed at the same time. Features include replacement chrome bumpers and overriders, a leaper hood ornament, J-Lite halogen headlights and driving lamps, and fender-mounted mirrors. The passenger door glass has an area of wear, and there is a paint crack in the lower valance. Both areas can be seen up close in the gallery.

    Chrome 16” wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-offs and are mounted with 205/65 Continental ContiTouringContact tires. A matching spare wheel is mounted beneath the trunk floor. Koni shocks are fitted at all four corners. The XK150 model was equipped with servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes front and rear. An August 2020 service included the installation of a replacement master cylinder, servo, caliper assemblies, hoses, and XKE-style square brake pads.

    The cabin features red seats that were reupholstered in the 2010s along with matching door panels, carpets, and a dash pad. Equipment includes lap belts, tinted sun visors, dual gloveboxes, and an under-dash kill switch. Both front seats show wear on the rear seatback piping.

    The 15″ Moto-Lita steering wheel fronts a burl wood dash panel with a 140-mph speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The fuel-level gauge and sending unit were serviced in March 2021, and the speedometer needs to be recalibrated according to the seller. A factory four-spoke steering wheel is included in the sale and can be seen in the gallery. The five-digit odometer shows under 25k miles, 500 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

    The 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six features dual SU carburetors and was factory rated at 190 horsepower. Modifications include an aluminum-alloy radiator and thermostatically controlled external cooling fan as well as an alternator, electronic ignition, a gear reduction starter, and a spin-on oil filter. The electrical system was converted to negative ground, and a 12-volt Optima battery is fitted. A replacement oil pan gasket was installed in 2019 along with a front carburetor diaphragm, and an oil change was performed in August 2020. Seepage is noted at the oil pan gasket.

    Cylinder head stamping V1706–8 matches the engine block casting and chassis tag as well as the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate.

    Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Rebuilds of the clutch cylinders were performed in September 2019 along with the installation of transmission seals and gaskets, and a replacement fuel sending unit seal was installed in March 2021. Chips are noted on the ceramic-coated exhaust manifold, as is seepage from the gearbox gasket. Paint overspray is visible on the right-front control arm.

    The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate lists the original colors, component numbers, and other production information.

    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?
