Introduced in the spring of 1957. the XK150 was available at first only in fixed and drophead coupé forms. the open roadster version not appearing until the following year. At 190bhp. the standard 3. 4-litre engine's maximum power output was identical to that of the XK140.
The '140' would turn out to be the final glorious incarnation of Jaguar's fabulous 'XK' series of sports cars. As its nomenclature suggests. the XK150 was a progressive development of the XK120 and XK140. retaining the same basic chassis. 3. 4-litre engine and four-speed Moss transmission of its predecessors while benefiting from a new. wider body that provided increased interior space and improved visibility courtesy of a single-piece wrap-around windscreen. replacing the XK140's divided screen. Cleverly. the new body used many XK120/140 pressings. the increased width being achieved by means of a 4"-wide central fillet. A higher front wing line and broader radiator grille were other obvious differences. but the new model's main talking point was its Dunlop disc brakes. Fade following repeated stops from high speed had been a problem of the earlier. drum-braked cars. but now the XK had stopping power to match its prodigious straight-line speed.
This XK first came to us in 1996 after resurfacing onto the classic scene in 1985. A new home was soon found and in fact that same owner has only now decided to have a change.
Internally 'TVS' has a perfect dash / instrument area. unmarked head-cloth and wonderful mellow Mulberry leather seating complemented by a 'as new' carpet set.
Externally 'TVS' sits and photographs very well. with the bodywork carrying the odd blemish to expect on an older restoration. Panel fit and body lines are very good and are nicely complimented by good. bright chrome work and a smart set of painted wire wheels carrying period Cross-ply tyres.
On the road 'TVS' is sensational with a fabulous strong engine holding excellent oil pressure. Gathering speed the car pulls well. he gear change remains smooth and the transmission has no unwelcome noises. The gearbox is actually a delight to use and the car feels responsive. quick and is great fun to drive. The steering is light. (Currently on Cross-ply tyres) the brakes are good and the XK handles superbly. This is a true driver's car offering a fantastic opportunity to purchase a XK that does represent fantastic value.
All in all a genuine older restored example ready for use which can surely only increase in value.
