Description

1959 was a good year for the first owner of this stunning Jaguar XK 150 DHC, who took possession of this car on the 28th February of that year. Isn’t she beautiful? This car is from the era that Jaguar successfully took part in the Le Mans. Victories from then are commemorated in the Jaguar emblem fixed to the rear of the car. This car has been extremely well lavished with lots of care and attention. And because of this the car has never needed to be fully restored. For cosmetic reasons the car has been re-sprayed in her original colours. The paintwork is still quite neat with only a few minor blemishes. The original panelwork is nice and thin, correctly aligned. The matching burgundy red hood is in good order and closes neatly and securely. For those dry days there is also a matching tonneau cover. The item that really catches ones eye are the black wire wheels. The wheels have recently been straightened and re-sprayed adding impeccable roadholding as well being aesthetically pleasing to behold. The interior trim is clad in black leather seating with red carpets, giving the car a sophisticated yet sportive allure. The carpets are in good condition and the leather is nice and supple without noticeable signs of wear and tear. The dashboard is just as well maintained with all switches and instruments in good working order. Mechanically the car is perfectly sound. The engine has been rebuilt, the head smoothed out and the head gasket replaced. The starter motor and alternator have also been overhauled. After the rebuild the car was tested out on a rolling road and to aid long distance comfort a 5-speed gearbox was fitted. The car drives lovely with the straight-six engine sounding fantastic and running perfectly. The transmission does its work perfectly adding to the car’s modern driving characteristics. This Jaguar comes with an extensive file with records of the rolling road data and many maintenance invoices. In short this is a gorgeous 1959 Jaguar XK150 DHC with impeccable driving manners and fantastic mechanical prowess.
