Its sleek curves, powerful engine, and refined interior continues to captivate and stands as a timeless symbol of Jaguar's engineering excellence and legacy.
This particular 1958 XK-150 example is a numbers-matching Fixed Head Coupe that has been previously restored by Jaguar professionals and has been driven very sparingly since its restoration. It has always been properly stored and maintained and features a spectacular color combination of Maroon over a Biscuit leather interior, producing a truly great and timeless look. This 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, as well as dual mirrors, fog lights, and attractive brite work all the way around.
The engine in the car is the original engine, and both the head and cylinder block match. In addition, Classic Showcase installed new brake pistons and fluid, along with a full system flush. The Coupe’s transmission has been upgraded to a 4-speed (that came from another XK-150) primarily to enhance the driving experience, and all of the parts used in the manual transmission are factory-correct parts from Jaguar. The Coupe has also benefited from a recent tune-up and stands in fine running and driving condition. Whether it’s for showing, driving, or collecting as an investment, this beautifully restored 1958 Jaguar XK-150 is ready to provide the excitement and thrills that only a classic Jaguar can offer!
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.
