"The Jaguar XK150 is undeniably one of the world's fastest and safest cars of its era. It is quiet and exceptionally refined mechanically, docile and comfortable... we do not know of any more outstanding example of value for money." - The Autocar.
This exceptional XK150 was built as a top-of-the-line Drophead Coupe version and configured for the North American market as a left-hand drive example. It was completed at Jaguar's Browns Lane, Coventry works in July of 1958, The XK150 was finished in a stealth black exterior, fitted with a red Connolly interior and a black convertible top.
The Jaguar's first owner is believed to have been a dentist from San Mateo, California, which was distributed through Jaguar Cars of New York. The elegant XK150 was later purchased by a Napa, California resident, before being acquired by the third owner, who would keep the car for over two decades. This gentleman began a comprehensive restoration, during which every effort was made to make the XK150 Drophead Coupe an absolute showstopper. When the work was completed in 2008, the freshly restored Jaguar was brought out to the show circuit with great success, and was respectively awarded Best in Class and Judges Choice at Jaguar Clubs of North America (JCNA) events. The car was sold to the fourth owner in 2009, whom kept the car until recently, proudly displaying it in his climate-controlled collection.
This spectacular car is finished in the period-correct Imperial Maroon over a biscuit Connolly interior and Wilton carpets. XK150 Drophead Coupe looks incredibly elegant and appropriate. The light tan convertible top and top boot gives great contrast to the car's exterior color, while its exquisite chrome and bright work adds the right amount of glamour. This XK150 still retains its matching numbers engine block, but the cylinder head appears to have been replaced at some point. This example would be a great entry to rallies and driving events but equally at home on a concours lawn. Available for inspection anytime at our Los Angeles showroom. We ship Worldwide.
