(SOLD) This beautiful Jaguar has been completely restored to Show Level by Jaguar Professionals and no expense was spared. A great example to begin with, this extensive restoration included the following and much more; engine, transmission, drive train and all systems were gone through, body was taken to bare metal, fitted to perfection, interior trimmed in a beautiful French Grey color, brite work re-plated to show level and all hardware panels in proper finish. It is in a spectacular color combination of Cornish Grey exterior and French Grey interior and has been well cared for and serviced since restoration. It is a multiple JCNA Show winner with matching numbers. This XK is for the discerning collector who demands quality with no excuses.
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.
