Car to be at auction 6/21
www.bonhams.com/auctions/26807/lot/35/

Auction description:
Lot 35
1959 Jaguar XK150 '3.8' Drophead Coupé
Registration no. 648 XVH Chassis no. 5837280BW Engine no. W3560-8
£ 80,000 - 100,000
US$ 110,000 - 140,000
Odometer reading: 38,200
MOT expiry date: Exempt

* Meticulously mechanically and bodily restored XK
* Extensively upgraded with 3.8 engine and power steering
* Extensive history file detailing restoration and improvements

This XK150 has been comprehensively restored and upgraded to achieve a fast, fine handling and dependable car that benefits from sensible modifications, fitted without compromising that classic Jaguar character.
Purchased in restored condition from Mark Hyman in the USA in 2015 and imported to the UK, the XK150 has undergone a complete survey and further restoration, commissioned by its exacting owner. He engaged an independent Jaguar XK consultant to oversee the works which included uprating the engine to 3.8 specification, using a later type 3.4 block, bored to 3.8-litres, and the 3.4 'S' cylinder head, with upgraded connecting rods, crankshaft, timing gear and oil pump, and 'S' type camshafts.

The transmission has been uprated to a five-speed Borg Warner 65 automatic unit with oil cooler. Engine cooling is taken care of by an aluminium radiator with an electric fan and all the electrics have been uprated. The front suspension and rear axle have been overhauled and 'EZ' electric power steering fitted. The coachwork had been repainted in Old English White in the USA, plus a new mohair hood with contrasting red leather interior. All history and works are carefully recorded and the new owner will be taking on a very nice XK150, benefitting from the vendor's uncompromising commitment to quality work.

 The last owner purchased the car from the renowned specialist Hyman in St Louis, Missouri in 2015 for the sum of $162,500, and imported it to the UK. In Hyman’s sales literature at the time, they described the Jaguar thus: ‘the car has received a ground-up nut-and-bolt restoration to exceptional standards of fit, finish and function… everything has been done to standards appropriate to a high quality concours restoration.’

This owner then set about taking this delectable machine to giddy new heights, addressing everything they thought needed addressing on what must have been a no-expense-spared basis: £6,262 was spent on works at Winspeed Motorsport, then a further £37,076 at West Riding Jaguar Specialists, followed by another £6,027 at Twyford Moors. It’s fair to say that this approach bordered on the obsessive, and the result is a beautifully presented XK150 in very impressive condition, that’s thoroughly enjoyable to drive.
