This 1958 Jaguar XK-150 is a numbers-matching Fixed Head Coupe that has been restored by Jaguar Professionals. This Jaguar has been driven very sparingly since it's restoration and has always been properly maintained and stored. The car features a spectacular color combination of Maroon over a Biscuit leather interior, producing a great timeless look. The Coupe’s transmission has been upgraded to a 4-speed to enhance your driving experience.
In addition, this classic Jaguar model is also an excellent choice for drivers that are larger in stature, with plenty of legroom in the front, as well as a back “jump” seat that can accommodate 2 additional passengers. The FHC also includes a spacious and complimenting boot for traveling. The XK-150 also features dual mirrors, fog lights, and is appointed with attractive brite work.
Classic Showcase has recently serviced and prepared this XK-150 for the road, and is ready to be entered in your favorite Concours event, or simply added to your collection as a great investment.
Production of the Jaguar XK-150 began in the spring of 1957 and would become the last of the tradition 1950s Jaguars. Although similar in appearance to the XKE cars it was replaced, it was certainly a different machine. It retained the same basic chassis, engine, and Moss four-speed gearbox, but its outward appearance was different and wider and there was more interior room for the occupants. Four inches were added to the center of the body making the extra width possible. A one-piece wraparound windscreen improved visibility. The radiator grille was changed slightly. The biggest improvement to the vehicle’s performance was the addition of Dunlop disc brakes on all four corners of the car. The XK-150 produced the same amount of horsepower as the XK140, so their performance was identical in terms of speed. The SE option added a modified cylinder head and larger exhaust valves which increased the standard 190 hp to 210. In 1958 the Model S was introduced which raised the vehicles performance even further. With the help of three two-inch SU HD8 carburetors, a Weslake-developed cylinder head, and high compression pistons, horsepower rose to an impressive 250 brining the zero-to-sixty time in just over seven seconds. All the XK-150s were offered with an optional Borg-Warner automatic gearbox and a choice of either steel or wire wheels. On the S Model, a limited-slip differential could be ordered as optional equipment. There were 2265 examples of the XK-150 Roadster produced with only 888 being the highly-sought after Model S.
