For auction H+H, Buxton, England on 16th Feb 2010. Estimate £60/70000
According to the accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Production Record Trace Certificate, this particular example left the famous Browns Lane factory bound for Eastern Canada on 14th May 1959. Migrating to Texas some time thereafter, the XK150 was brought back to the UK during 1990. More recently the Open Two-Seater is said to have been "the subject of an extensive body-off, chassis-up restoration with all wearing parts being checked over and / or renewed as necessary". Reportedly "stripped back to bare metal and rendered completely rust free" the bodywork was repainted gloss black, while the interior was "retrimmed in red leather by a marque specialist" who was also responsible for fitting the attractive walnut dashboard. The engine block is original to the chassis but the cylinder head has been replaced with an improved MKX version (a swap which apparently took place Stateside).
The XK150 was UK road registered for the first time in March 2008 and its refurbishment completed some three months later. The vendor informs us that in the interests of increasing the car's drivability / usability it has been upgraded with the following: "a Jaguar LT77 five-speed manual gearbox, aluminium fuel tank, alternator conversion, electronic ignition module (concealed within the distributor), aluminium radiator / Kenlowe fan, stainless steel exhaust (including six-branch manifold) and uprated brakes". Sporting a new double-duck hood / tonneau cover and "chrome that has been replated to a high standard", this handsome Jaguar is worthy of close inspection. Riding on correct-style painted wire wheels, it is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document and MOT certificate valid until July 2010.
