This 1960 Jaguar XK150 SE has been in the same ownership since
1988 and is now being offered as part of a deceased estate.
Although bearing a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140. the
XK150 was radically revised. A one-piece windscreen replaced the
split screen. and the wing line no longer dropped so deeply at the
doors. The front parking lights. which were located at the top of
the wings. featured a red light to remind the driver the lights
were on.

Mechanically. the 3. 4 litre DOHC Jaguar straight six engine was
rated at 180 SAE bhp at 5750 rpm but most cars were fitted with the
SE engine whose modified cylinder head (B type) and larger exhaust
valves boosted the power to a claimed 210 SAE bhp at 5500 rpm. Twin
1. 75-inch (44 mm) SU HD6 carburettors were fitted. The suspension
and chassis were very similar to the XK140. and steering was by
rack and pinion.

According to the original buff log book. the Jaguar was first
registered in September 1960. in Kirkowen. Belfast and only four
keepers are recorded including the deceased gentleman who remains
the last name on the log book. It is rare to find an XK that has
been for the most part unmolested and has certainly not had the
soul restored out of it. There are a very few blemishes to the
coachwork which is resplendent in white and certainly shows off the
excellent chrome work and chrome wire wheels. The interior has also
been untouched and. although the red leather has that certain
patina. the interior is in very good order and serviceable.

As well as the original buff log book and instruction manual. the
history file shows works carried out by the Jaguar specialists M.
Barclay and Hoffman's of Henley amongst others. Since purchase by
its enthusiastic owner in 1988. this XK150 DHC has been well loved
and cared for. only being used on dry days for trips to local car
shows and occasions. We are advised that this Jaguar will arrive at
the sale with a current UK V5 registration document and a fresh MoT
test certificate.

This Jaguar XK150 SE DHC offers the chance to own a very honest
and largely original car that is not often found these days.
