THE JAGUAR XK150

Introduced in the spring of 1957, the XK150 was available at first only in fixed and drop head coupe forms, the open Roadster version not appearing until the following year. The chassis remained much as before, as did the 3.4-liter, XK, six-cylinder engine that produced 190bhp as 'standard' which was identical to its XK140 predecessor. Additionally, the XK could receive a bump in power to 210bhp when fitted with the 'B'-type cylinder head. Overdrive and a Borg-Warner automatic gearbox were the transmission options, the latter becoming an increasingly popular choice, while a Thornton Powr-Lok limited-slip differential was available for the XK150S.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Produced in Jaguar's Coventry workshops on October 2, 1957, this Left-Hand Drive XK150 Fixed Head Coupe was dispatched to the United States shortly thereafter to Jaguar Cars of New York. The sleek coupe was originally trimmed in Mist Grey over red hides, the car appears to have spent the majority of its life in sunny Southern California with copies of old registrations dating from 1975 until 2005. At some point the car was repainted in Cotwold Blue but the original interior color was retained. It is understood to have been uprated mechanically with larger 3" SU HD8 carburetors and a straight ported cylinder head. To aid in cooling an aluminum radiator with electric fan has been fitted.

Acquired by the present owner in 2013, this Jag has seen little use in the past nine years and will require mechanical recommissioning prior to active use. Known for being one of the more spacious classic Jaguar models, the Fixed Head Coupe is a wonderful choice for drivers with a larger frame. With copious amounts of legroom complemented by a back 'jump' seat and a large trunk area, the XK150 is a very well-suited choice for travelling on vintage driving rallies such as the Copperstate 1000.
