1960 Jaguar XK 150

220 bhp, 781 cc DOHC inline six-cylinder engine with twin SU HD6 carburetors, our-speed manual transmission with electric overdrive, orsion bar independent front suspension, ive rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, nd four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 102 in. High-quality restoration by Jaguar professionals Gorgeous red over black color combination Desirable 3.8-liter engine Accompanied by its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate If the MG TC began the post-war British sports car invasion of the U.S.A., aguar’s XK120 was the second wave that consolidated and expanded the beachhead. The new Jaguar was an instant hit at its 1948 Earl’s Court Motor Show introduction, nd it was so modern and so powerful that it immediately developed a devoted following among those who could indulge in the nearly $4,000 price at a time, hich was quite extravagant, s the average annual salary was only $3,600. The model was a consistent winner in the hearts of owners and on race tracks everywhere. It underwent continued development until the final variant, he XK150, as introduced in 1957 as a 1958 model. This ultimate development of the XK line has the most power, omfort, nd performance. It was also the first production car with four-wheel disc brakes, eaning that, or the first time, he Jag had stopping power equal to its horsepower. The XK150 was also significantly restyled with a higher beltline and only a subtle dip ahead of the rear fender. Additionally, he windshield was now a single piece, nd the distinctive Jaguar grille was retained but widened. The resulting profile brought the car up to date and hinted at its grand touring character. This XK150 was completed on February 15, 960, nd then shipped to Jaguar of Eastern Canada. It was equipped with the desirable 3.8-liter engine and fitted with the so-called B-type cylinder head, s found on the 3.4-liter Special Equipment model. Its 220 horsepower was a welcome addition, s the Standard and SE 3.4-liters produced 190- and 210-horsepower ratings, espectively. As this car is a drophead coupe, t is one of only two thousand six hundred seventy-two produced, hich represents just twenty-eight percent of total XK150 production. This lovely example has undergone a proper and very high-quality restoration performed by Jaguar professionals, ith virtually no expense spared. The body received a bare-metal refinish in fresh red paint, ith carefully fitted panels, nd it is handsomely accompanied by a black convertible top and beautifully restored brightwork. The interior has been trimmed in subtle black leather, hich complements the exterior beautifully. Additionally, he engine, earbox, rivetrain, nd all systems were thoroughly rebuilt. In addition to the desirable 3.8-liter engine this model is equipped with dual fog lamps, proper dual-exhaust system, nd a fully equipped trunk.
