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. Toward the end of XK150 production the 3.8-litre engine was introduced and today these rare variants are the most desirable to collectors.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 S838726DN this original left-hand drive XK150 Drophead Coupe (DHC) was built on February 26 1960 and dispatched on March 11 1960 to America via Jaguar Cars New York to its first owner Mr. C. Wallace. Beautifully finished in silver paint black leather upholstery and a black Haartz cloth convertible top this XK150 retains the original body and original matching numbers 3.8L DOHC XK engine with dual SU carburetors. In addition to its intrinsic desirability this 1960 Jaguar XK150 is quite rare according to marque experts as one of just 591 3.8 litre examples produced in 1960 with the Drophead Coupe body style 443 of which including this XK150 were original Export models.In 2006 it was acquired by the Jaguar restoration specialists Classic Showcase who performed the restoration. The Drophead Coupe was then acquired by esteemed collector Paul Petrovich and it quickly became a favorite to drive in his collection. In 2018 the Jaguar was fully repainted and much of the chrome was renewed with mechanical tuning performed by Sacramento-area British car specialist Dan Kelly. That year the owner was honored to be invited to participate in the Pebble beach Tour DElegance with his gleaming Jaguar and the car performed flawlessly on the picturesque roads of the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur. This XK150 continues to benefit from restoration and proper maintenance and mechanical sorting for an excellent driving experience on command. Accompanying documents include a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate plus a selection of work orders and service receipts. With its balance of sharp handling gutsy power and vastly improved passenger comfort the 150 is the driving enthusiasts pick of the XK range. Featuring great colors and delivering immense character and presence this sophisticated 1960 Jaguar XK150 3.8-litre Drophead Coupe is more than worthy of continued preservation and appreciation just as it has enjoyed under the prior ownership.Offers welcome and trades consideredFor additional details please view this listing directly on our website https://hymanltd.com/vehicles/7590-1960-jaguar-xk150-3-8-drophead-coupe/
