There were only 540 total, 3.8 optioned XK150 DHC built. Only 264 of those cars werebuilt with 4 speed and the optioned over drive. And, only 6, XK150 3.8 cars werebuilt with the higher 9 to 1 compression vrs. the 8 to 1 compression engine.And, this is a special equipment model. This is a very rare car.
