Classic Car Overview

Introduced in May 1957 the new XK150 built on Jaguars rich heritage including the XK120 and XK140 before it marking the third and final evolution of the brilliant XK-series sports cars from Jaguar. While continuing to use a shortened Mark V chassis and bearing a strong resemblance to its predecessors the XK150 was slightly wider and featured cleaner styling with a higher and more subtle beltline replacing the trendy cut-down doors of the XK120 and XK140. A wider grille element improved engine cooling and a modern one-piece curved windscreen provided improved forward visibility. At launch the XK150 was available in both Fixed Head and Drophead Coupe body styles with the Open Two-Seater (Roadster) following them to market by March 1958. From the start Jaguar applied the lessons gained from competition to its sporting road cars which steadily grew in performance and sophistication. A clear case of racing improving the breed the XK150 was Jaguars first road model equipped with Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes which played a key role in the companys second Le Mans victory with the C-Type in 1953. Until late 1959 Jaguars already-legendary XK DOHC inline six powered the XK150 in 3.4-liter form with a stout 190-bhp rating. While the XK150 was designed strictly as a fast GT-oriented road car a few committed privateers campaigned it to good effect including the GT-class win at the 1960 Tulip Rally and Walt Hansgens creditable third-place podium at Bridgehampton in June 1960. Bearing Chassis Number S838005 this original left-hand drive XK150 Drophead Coupe (DHC) was built on January 6 1959 and dispatched on January 23 1959 to America via Jaguar Cars New York. Continuing to sport its original color combination of Black paint Red upholstery and a Black convertible top this XK150 retains the original body and original matching numbers DOHC XK engine with dual SU carburetors. In addition to its intrinsic desirability this 1959 Jaguar XK150 is quite rare according to marque experts as one of just 2682 examples produced with the Drophead Coupe body style 2133 of which including this XK150 were original Export models. Owned by the previous owner from 2006 to mid-2021 this XK150 continues to benefit from restoration and proper maintenance and mechanical sorting for an excellent driving experience on command.
