Jaguar : XK Drop Head Coupe for sale
This car could possibly be the best unrestored XK150 in the world. (in the 80s it was repainted and had a new interior and convertible top installed). It is a numbers matching car complete with documentation stretching back to its initial sale in Los Angeles. It also has an original tool kit and a vacuum tube AM radio which still works. It has spent most of its life in the bone dry desert of Palm Springs. California. The panels have not been adjusted and are just as they left the factory. The chrome (including the wheels and leaping cat) is all totally original and carries the very light patina of its 54 years but without any pitting. As previously stated. the car was repainted (changed from Black to Primrose Yellow) and re-trimmed (changed from Red to Green) about 30 years ago as the Palm Springs sun is hard on enamel and leather. The convertible top was also replaced (changed from Sand to Black). An engine sump gasket leak developed a few months ago and during its replacement the oil pump was also replaced. Additionally all of the suspension rubber components were replaced and the brakes were also serviced. The two 6 volt batteries have been replaced with one 12 volt unit. The car is still positive ground and retains its original generator which was recently serviced. Mileage is under 80K. The car still has its factory fitted Borg-Warner automatic gearbox. which makes it a delight to drive; no struggling with the heavy clutch and the brutal Moss box. The spare tire compartment is a real time warp as the factory spot welds are still clearly visible in its original totally corrosion free state. In the 10 years I have had the car in Canada. it has been kept in my heated shop and has never been driven in the rain; and it never rains in Palm Springs!On Feb-08-15 at 21:24:23 PST. seller added the following information:
Of course. it should read 56 years old. NOT 54.
