XK120 Service Handbook

With 190 HP on tap, the twin SU-equipped 3.4L XK150—such as this 1960 XK150 from the Rick Grant III Estate Collection—was road tested at 124 MPH, with 0-60 MPH coming up in 8.5 seconds. The suspension setup is independent at the front with wishbones, longitudinal torsion bars and anti-roll bar, while the live-axle rear rides on semi-elliptic leaf springs.

The DN suffix on Chassis No. S835891DN denotes that this 1960 left-hand drive example, in white with red leather upholstery, red carpeting and chrome wire wheels, is fitted with the desirable optional overdrive, in effect adding a fifth gear to the 4-speed manual transmission and making for far more relaxed and less revvy high-speed cruising. In the last 35 years or so, this 1960 Jaguar XK150 has been in the hands of just two owners, as prior to it joining the Rick Grant Collection in 2008, Rodney Beer of Nappanee, Indiana, had enjoyed it for 20 years since purchasing it in 1987.

Sold for $68,200

Seller's description:

This 1960 Jaguar XK150 Fixed-Head Coupe is a strong running, beautifully restored English import that has been cared for by the same 2 owners for over 35 years. Only 4,101 XK150 fixed-head coupes were produced by Jaguar in the span of 1957-1960, which makes this British import a pretty rare piece of automotive history. This particular XK150 comes to us after its previous two stewards owned and cared for this car for over a combined 35 years. Found under the bonnet on this '60 XK150 is a numbers matching 3,442 c.c. Twin Overhead Cam Inline 6 cylinder engine paired with a set of Twin S.U. sidedraft carburetters that together were said to create 210 horsepower from the factory. Exhaust exits the dual overhead cam Jaguar engine via a dual exhaust setup that gives the car a very nice throaty sound. The 3.4L DOHC Inline 6 is mated to a 4 speed manual transmission that is outfitted with a Laycock de-Normanville Overdrive unit that makes this British sports car an absolute blast to drive! With disc brakes in all 4 corners, this sporty little 1960 Jaguar comes to a stop with ease. This XK150 rides on a set of 6.00-16 bias-ply tires that are wrapped around chrome wire knock-off wheels that give this Fixed-Head Coupe a sporty, period-correct look. A pair of chrome outside mirrors are mounted on top of the fenders further add to the refined appearance of this British sports car. The exterior of this Jaguar XK150 has been refinished is a beautiful Pearl Grey, completing the exterior look of the car. The interior of this '60 Jaguar is absolutely stunning! The front bucket seats along with the rear seats have been reupholstered in beautiful Red leather that truly complements, and is complemented by, the exterior Pearl Grey paint. The Red leather padded dash with a Burl woodgrain insert, the matching upholstered door panels and carpeting, and the steering wheel all appear to be in fantastic condition and in their stock configuration. The dash is equipped with a Smiths 140 MPH speedometer, Smiths 6,000 RPM tachometer with integrated clock, Lucas Amp gauge, Smiths oil pressure and water temperature combo gauge, and a Smiths petrol gauge. Whether you're adding to your British motoring collection or you're buying your first classic car, this 1960 Jaguar XK150 Fixed-Head Coupe would make an excellent choice.
