Although having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150 was radically modernized. A one piece windscreen replaced the split screen, and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the doors. The alloy bonnet was widened and opened down to the wings. In the interior, the XK140's walnut dashboard was replaced by an elegantly leather trimmed dash. Thinner doors gave the interior needed space as well. Four-wheel Dunlop 12 in. Disc-Brakes appeared for the first time.

Chassis T831663DN was built November 3, 1958 and dispatched on the 26 of that month, as a U.S. specification “3.4 Litre S” through Jaguar Cars, New York - finished in Pearl Grey paint over Black leather upholstery and top. The Jaguar was acquired through long-term ownership from a noteworthy collection in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida before receiving a thorough mechanical and cosmetic freshening in July of 2018. Work was entrusted to marque expert and multiple JCNA and Pebble Beach winning restorer, Jeff's Resurrection's of Taylor, Texas. This included: replacing ALL fluids and filters, new spark plugs and wire assembly, thermostat, rebuild carbs, inspect/clean/polish/paint and coat engine head and auxiliary components, new exhaust manifolds, new brake booster, master cylinder, slave cylinder, clutch and steering joint. Test electrical system, tune vehicle, install polished bumpers and wheels – mounted to correct 6.00R16 tires. A $10,500 invoice is kept on file.

Overall, the Roadster presents well and is highly capable as a strong tourer or local display. As a testament to its purity and originality the body number “6680” if found stamped on the front hood and factory chalk markings are also present. Visually striking, this XK150 excels the most with its exceptional drivability and mechanical prowess, in addition to an unusually solid body and undercarriage. Spot welds can be seen throughout the vehicle, including the luggage compartment, which displays original paint and factory crayon markings on the rear deck and trunk mat. Emergency equipment also contained within, includes a Thor hammer, spanner, t-key, jack, wrench, grease gun and matching spare assembly. The nicely mellowed cabin is comfortable and spacious enough for distance rallies, with the benefit of overdrive. Top-up, open-air, or protected by a zippered full-cab tonneau cover, all weather equipment is included. With a wrap-around windscreen and roll up windows, the 150s offer a much more pleasant top-down experience than its older siblings.

The polished lacquer paint was applied many years ago and is complimented by chrome wire wheels, tall period tires, single Lucas driving lamp and what appears to be original trim. The correctly dressed engine bay is orderly and authentic in presentation with proper finishes, hoses, Cheney clamps and auxiliary equipment. Early sporting Jaguars command attention with their strikingly elegant lines and fierce performance. This XK150 is no exception and great opportunity to acquire the most refined variant of the XK100 class. Now available from our Houston, Texas showroom for worldwide purchase and delivery.
