This lovely right hand drive car is presented in its original colour of Old English White with red interior, on its original number plate 692 BTT. The car's originality is supported by a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, certified copy of the Devon Archives, and inspected by the London XK specialist from the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club. This example also retains its original engine, chassis and gearbox with working overdrive in original livery.
Mr. Sanderson of Torquay first bought 692 BTT new in March 1959. From there it appears that the car was owned by Wing Commander Graham Rogers MBE DFC, a pilot in the RAF's 92nd squadron. From there it was exported in 1983 to Turin, Italy, where the car was awarded the numbered status of Historic Classic Car (HCC), confirming originality, and the car carries the club badges on its front badge bar today. The separate numbered metal numbered HCC badge is sold with the car.
Imported back into the UK, the car was immediately passed to Steve Coleman's Jag West London Workshop for a full overhaul. This included a full service, new camshaft covers, rebuilt carburettors, new shock absorbers, new discs all around, rebuilt suspension with new bushes throughout and extensive re-chroming. The cost of these works totalled £10,450 and bills are on file to support this. This wonderful classic British sportscar is sold with its original service manual, original Jaguar sales flyer and the original AutoExpress XK150 SE test write up.
