Jaguar’s sports models grew up in a sense as the company fine-tuned its products for the all-important American market, and these efforts resulted in the XK150. Produced for only three years from May of 1957 until October of 1960, the 150 reflected many changes to suit American’s somewhat unique tastes, styles and driving situations. Among other things, this meant that the sparsely equipped roadster, called an “Open Two-Seater” in Britain, was given less emphasis, becoming the rarest of all XK150s with only 1,339 built even though it now offered a notable amenity of roll-up windows. This gorgeous example of the desirable Roadster has received a true ground up, nut and bolt restoration, and while it is not a trailer queen, it has been driven remarkably little and presents beautifully. Finished in red with a tan leather interior and chrome wire wheels, this Jaguar also features fender mounted mirrors, an exquisite wood instrument panel, a tonneau cover, and a period correct radio. The car has been upgraded with a 5-speed gearbox, but the original 4-speed comes with the sale, as do the original key tag from the car’s importation and a copy of the original invoice, which indicates that the car was bought for $4346.75 in Birmingham, Alabama. Now properly restored, this XK150 perfectly embodies the classic 1950s Jaguar. The feline stance is unmistakable, the 3.4-liter straight six XK is among the all time great sports car engines, and the red paint is eye-catching to say the least. It can be even more thoroughly enjoyed with its more usable five-speed, while the original gearbox can be refitted to maintain originality. Either way, this car offers classic, top-down Jaguar motoring, and it doesn’t get much more stylish than that.
