This car has always been well serviced and maintained. The top is relatively new, as well as the tires. Most of the original parts and hardware under the bonnet are in good serviceable condition. In 1961 the original owner had an unstamped 3.8 block installed by the dealership for greater performance, but the head is the original one that came with the car. It also has dual exhaust. It comes with a Heritage Certificate of Authenticity which verifies it is still in its original color combination.

In 1957 Jaguar introduced the XK-150, a replacement for the XK-140. The XK-150 had many similarities to its predecessors but it featured modern styling and improved mechanics. Only 4,450 Coupes were produced of the XK-150 between 1957 and 1961 with 10,000 XK-150’s produced total. The XK-150 was plusher and more civilized, and substantially restyled, with a re-contoured beltline, wider grille and a one-piece windshield. The curvature of the line from front to rear fender was much straightened, resulting in a heavier look. For better drivability, disc brakes were fitted with servo assist. Compared with the XK 140, the following technological improvements can be noted: the XK 150 was fitted with disc brakes on the front wheels and with more powerful engines. The 3.4-litre XK engine fetched a standard 210 hp, and the SE Special Equipment version even 250 hp. From 1958, the XK 150 was also available with a 3.8-litre XK engine with a capacity of no less than 265 hp.
