1958 Jaguar XK150
The Jaguar XK150 is a sports car produced by Jaguar between 1957 and 1961 as the successor to the XK140. Initially it was only available in fixed head coupé and drophead coupé versions. Minimal rear seats were fitted in the coupés. Announced in its home market in May 1957, the XK150 bore a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140 but was radically revised. Most visibly, a one-piece windscreen replaced the split screen, and the wing line carried higher and more streamlined at the doors. The widened bonnet opened down to the wings, and on the coupés the windscreen frame was moved forward 4 inches to make passenger access easier. The car was available at various times in Red, Pearl Grey, White, Indigo Blue, Claret, Cotswold Blue, Black, Mist Grey, Sherwood Green, Carmen Red, British Racing Green, Cornish Grey, and Imperial Maroon.
The matching number motor and Concours-ready Jaguar has been outfitted with a 5-Speed Cosworth Transmission. Well documented from 1966 on, this car was maintained regularly and more recenlty had all new front suspension bushings replaced, carburetor refurbished, seats repadded, new choke, new battery and an aluminum gas tank installed. The chrome wire wheels, 4 wheel disc brakes and newer tires add something extra to this show-stopper. The XK 150 has a larger cockpit than previous 120 & 140 models with leg room for people larger than 6 feet. The cooling systems were much improved along with the stopping power of 4 wheel disc brakes, a first in the automotive production car industry. This car is easily capable of comfortable ssastained highway drives at 80 milles per hour or just vigorous jounts on wooded back roads.
