Seen on eBay:

This car is one of 888 150 “S” OTS (Open Two Seater) Jaguar’s built. It underwent an 18 month restoration which was completed two years ago. Since restoration it has been driven just over 200 miles. It shows 32,651 miles, but don’t know if those are actual miles. The owner had planned to show this car and then enter it in the Arizona Copperstate 1000. Unfortunately, his untimely death caused the sale of this beautiful car. It has a 3.4 litre, dual overhead cam 6 cylinder engine. The “S” model has 4-wheel disc brakes, dual exhaust, triple SU carburetors and came with an O/D unit. The 150 came standard with rack and pinion steering. The stock transmission and O/D unit come with the car, but the owner installed the very popular all syncho 5-speed. The chrome wire wheels are brand new, as are the radial Bridgestone tires. The beauty of the 150 Roadster is that it came standard with roll-up windows. The Chassis No. is T831958DN; the Body No. is F16979, and the Engine No. is VS 1742 – 9. The car is in Scottsdale, Arizona and has been inspected and driven by Sports Car Service Center mechanics. This great looking and running car needs nothing cosmetically or mechanically. It’s just ready to be enjoyed.

Current bid $50,000 reserve not met, 1 bid, 8 days left in auction. Car now located in New York City.

Sellers description:
This 1959 XK150 "S" Roadster is Red with a proper leather Red Interior and Black canvas soft top. This 32,000 original documented mile car was totally restored less than 3 years ago, and has less than 300 miles on it since the restoration. The car was titled in Arizona, and the previous owner installed a synchro 5-speed transmission making it an extraordinary car to drive. The original transmission and overdrive unit comes with the car. The car is currently in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically with the engine finely tuned and the transmission shifting smoothly. The paintwork developed a couple of minor blemishes, so we had it recently totally painted making sure that the car had absolutely no excuses whatsoever. Everything about the car is excellent including: the interior, the chrome, the wire wheels, etc. This is a totally matching numbers car and comes with the documented Heritage Certificate.

• Engine no. VS1742-9

• Heritage Trust Certificate

The XK150S Roadster was originally a U.S. delivery, completed on January 12, 1959, dispatched ten days later on January 22, 1959, and shipped to the United States through Jaguar Cars New York. Currently finished in Red over Red upholstery, its original color combination was Pearl Grey over Red, verified by the Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.

The paintwork is in good overall condition with excellent panel fit and gaps. The body trim and brightwork are in excellent condition. The interior has red carpets and upholstery with a black vinyl soft top and boot cover. A wooden four-spoke Jaguar steering wheel sits ahead of a central instrument panel, equipped with a 5,500-rpm redline tachometer, a 140-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges for the fuel level, amperage, oil pressure, and water temperature. The knock-off chrome 16" wire wheels with spinners are fitted to Michelin 185 R15 tires (date coded 2021).

In 2022, over $50,000 was spent with Hahn Auto Restoration in Harmony, Pennsylvania. Hahn did a major mechanical service between January and June of 2022. The comprehensive services included a complete overhaul of the braking system, including installing a new master cylinder, brake pads, brake hoses, and rotors. Other repairs were carried out during the same period, such as installing new spark plugs, fuel pumps, fuel lines, battery, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, condenser, ignition, clutch master cylinder, and rebuilding the carburetors. The top frame was reupholstered with new fabric while the fuel tank was removed, stripped, repaired, and recoated with new gaskets and a fuel-sending unit. Five new Michelin 185 R15 tires were installed, and all the fluids were changed, along with a complete engine tune-up.

Mechanically powered by the matching number 3.4-liter DOHC inline six-cylinder with triple SU HD8 carburetors and C-Type cylinder head was rated at 250 horsepower. The top speed was 132 mph, and the XK150S could accelerate from 0–60 mph in 7.8 seconds. Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission, and the braking system on the XK150s was improved with four-wheel disc brakes. Thanks to its power, balanced handling, and superior comfort, driving enthusiasts rank the XK150 S Roadster as one of the BEST models in Jaguar's XK series. Given its rarity, ideal specification, and eligibility for some of the most popular driving events and concours, this XK Roadster represents an exciting opportunity for enthusiasts looking for a lovely 3.4-litre XK150 S Roadster that is well-sorted and ready to enjoy.
