Although having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140. the
XK150 was radically modernised. A one piece windscreen replaced the
split screen and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the
doors. The bonnet was widened. opened down to the wings and on the
roadster; the bulkhead was moved back four inches to make the
bonnet longer. In the interior. the XK140's walnut dashboard was
replaced by a leather trimmed unit. On the early drophead
coupés. an aluminium centre dash panel with an 'X' pattern
engraving was fitted which looked similar to the early 3. 8 litre
E-Type. It was discontinued after June 1958 and thinner doors gave
more interior space. The standard engine. the same as fitted to the
XK140. was the 3. 4 litre DOHC Jaguar straight six rated at 180bhp
at 5750rpm but most cars were fitted with the SE engine that had a
modified cylinder head with larger exhaust valves rated at 210bhp
at 5500rpm. Twin 1. 75-inch SU HD6 carburettors were fitted.
Four-wheel Dunlop 12" disc brakes appeared for the first time
although it was theoretically possible to order a car with drums.
Either wire wheels or disc wheels could be specified and the
suspension and chassis were very similar to that on the XK140.
These were high performance. well appointed sports touring cars and
could cope with long distances with alacrity.

This excellent lefthand drive Jaguar XK150 has been recently
imported from a collection in Austria where it had received a
complete restoration within the last ten years. It is believed to
have been originally supplied in 1959 in Germany and is fitted with
the 3. 4 litre engine and overdrive gearbox. The black paintwork is
in excellent condition as is the original beige leather interior
and it drives superbly. UK registered; this XK150 is supplied with
a V5C registration document. a heritage certificate and some
European documents. These XK150's are very usable and often
overlooked. their time is approaching and it will be the prudent
investor that has one or two of these tucked away.
