If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1961 Jaguar XK 150 3.8 liter Coupe in Carmen Red with Beige leather interior. 65,213 original miles with four Southern California owners from new (see below). Only the very last of these had 3.8 liter engines. This is the last one imported to the US and the 2nd to last 150 Coupe built (see Heritage Certificate Below). According to Peter Ingram registrar of all Jaguar XKs this is the last known XK of the XK120/140/150 era of any model. All matching numbers. Essentially a totally original car. Perfect rust and accident free body with, as best as I can determine, lovely original paint with some buff through mainly on the roof. The passenger side rear quarter might be the only exception to this claim. Fantastic interior with original dash, door panels and roof liner. Seats and carpets from BAS Jaguar trim specialist were installed in 2000, theyre correct and in perfect shape. Mechanically superb. We just went through it fitting new stainless exhaust system and giving it a very comprehensive check over and service, including carb rebuild, new belts, hoses, brake fluid, oil and filter, etc. History: Sold new in 1961 to Appel Slaten Development Co. real estate developers on Sunset Blvd Los Angeles CA, they owned it for only a year. In 1962 it was purchased by Harry and Jane Campbell of Lomita CA who owned it till 1989 (27 years), 3rd owner Keith and Patricia Tucker of Carson CA from 1999 till around 2014 when a friend of ours bought it and put it in his collection till we purchased it from him. Documentation: California registrations from 62 to 2010, records form 85 to 2003. Original Yellow and Black license plates issued in 61 plus the Black and Yellow plates issued in 62. Original handbook, tools, jack, spare, grease gun, hammer, etc. This has been treated as a collector car since the 60s and I would go as far as saying it s one of the best and most original XK 150 Coupes In existence. Inspections encouraged. All sales AS-IS. Sales tax and license fees due if delivered in California.
