We are delighted to offer this genuine Jaguar XK150S open two seater, a well-appointed sports touring car which, in its day, boasted a capability of 137mph with a 0-60mph time of 7.8 seconds. These accomplished motor cars were also able to cover long distances with alacrity; and still do today even given our modern traffic conditions. According to the Jaguar Heritage Production Record Trace Certificate, 192 UYK was manufactured on 25th June 1958 and dispatched to Jaguar Cars, New York on 14th July, 1958.  (Interestingly, a common error in researching the 'S' model, is to presume that an 'S' prefix to the chassis number would denote this as being an 'SE' model however, the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) have confirmed that the 'S' was dispatched in batches, either with 'T' prefix or an 'S' prefix). The build specification states that this was a lefthand drive, open two seater XK 150S with a manual/overdrive transmission, coachwork finished in British Racing Green, a tan interior and a black hood.

Today, this XK150S remains with its original specifications and colours. Imported from Beverly Hills into the UK on 6th November, 2014, the XK had undergone restoration works in the USA to a high standard and has only covered approximately 1,100 miles since. Further works have been carried out since being in the UK and include a full engine rebuild by the well-respected Jaguar specialists 'Jaguar Workshop' with supporting bills totalling in the region of £7,000. We are informed that the engine is now run-in having completed 700 miles since and also benefits from a post run-in service.

On inspection, the coachwork looks resplendent in British Racing Green whilst displaying excellent panel gaps; these being difficult to achieve with the type of construction Jaguar employed with the XK models. Please note, the chassis and body have been checked and confirmed as a matching numbers example. The interior boasts excellent tan hide seats with lap belts and is certainly a welcoming office for driver and passenger alike. Being an 'S' model, the car retains its disc brakes on all four wheels as well as a set of chrome wire wheels and recent new tyres (including the spare wheel). The tools, including the jack, are situated in the boot and the jacking points are accessible from the interior as per the original specification. We are informed that the engine block is not the original but a similar period unit has been used as a replacement, however the JDHT have confirmed that the cylinder head marked VS 1191-8 is the original unit for this motor car. In addition a non-standard Mota-Lita steering wheel is fitted. The hood is in excellent order and may be erected and stowed without undue difficulty.

On a recent test, the Jaguar drove well with the instruments displaying pressures and temperatures as they should. The engine pulled well with the gears engaging easily as well as the welcome overdrive for comfortable high speed cruising; overall a very pleasant and capable experience according to our tester. We have been told that this UK registered (import duties paid) XK150S will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate.

To find an XK150 in this condition, with such finish, panel gaps and performance is difficult at the best of times. To find a genuine 'S' model such as this, even rarer.
