Additional notes which will be important to the new owner are that the original factory radio is not installed but is available and will come with the car the under hood fuse boxes have been updated to accommodate easier access and maintenance - however all the original parts are included -we have her Heritage Certificateand we have the original jack and grease gun but not the wheel mallet or tool kit.

Low Curved and Exciting the bodywork of the XK Series created a sensation when announced in 1948. The engine - a six cylinder- rivaled the big American V8's of the time.
