(SOLD) This low mileage, factory XK150S has received a full vehicle service and detail by Classic Showcase. Included in the vehicle service, the gas tank was removed, hot tanked, epoxy sealed, painted and reinstalled with new hardware. Minimal mechanical service was needed as this vehicle has always been well maintained and serviced, running exceptionally well and documented with service records. The interior was freshened up as needed and included a new center dash in proper British materials. The car was also fitted with a new tan soft top. This car is offered complete with a Heritage Certificate, manuals, records and jack. This is an excellent opportunity to own a highly collectible Jaguar model that is a great candidate to take to a Champion level!
First introduced in 1948, the Jaguar XKs caused a sensation; race car performance on the road, and with an unsurpassed level of sophistication and timeless beauty. During the XK 150 model run (May 1957 through March 1961), a significant engine modification became available, the S engine which featured changes in the head and intake manifold design. Additional changes in the design and structure of the bearings, clutch and flywheel were made in anticipation of the additional torque and wear. The identification-plate engine serial number defined the engine as delivered from the factory. Externally, the S-type models can be identified by an S placed on the passenger door beneath the quarter-window. The XK150S roadster is highly appreciated by collectors who value its combination of luxury and performance with classic XK Jaguar style.
