![CDATA[
Spring of 1957 would turn out to be the final glorious incarnation of Jaguar’s fabulous ‘XK’ series of sports cars. The XK150, lightly re styled with its newly fitted Dunlop disc brakes and other minor upgrades. First available only in fixed head and drophead coupé forms, the newcomer retained the same basic chassis, 3.4-litre engine and four-speed Moss transmission of its predecessors but was improved with a restyled, roomier body with a higher front wing line, single-piece wrap-around windscreen, and broader radiator grille. A wider body would also facilitate a single-piece wrap-around windscreen replacing the divided screen.

This very well presented example was delivered new to Jaguar Cars New York in May 1958 and has more recently been repatriated to the UK where a comprehensive restoration was undertaken. The matching numbers engine was overhauled and the brightwork has been re-chromed along with a new set of wire wheels. The interior too has been renovated to a very high standard in blue, and the body was treated to a bare metal respray in a fabulous shade of ivory. In wonderful order this XK150 is ready for a new custodian and is offered with many invoices detailing the restoration, which totalled over £50,000, the UK registration document, and the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Ready to be used and enjoyed by a new custodian.
