It is always enormously satisfying. when purchasing a classic
Jaguar. to have the words. 'Twyford Moors' emblasoned across the
history file. And so it is with this considered example of the
marque.

Languishing as it was for many years in a barn. it was
discovered by the Hampshire-based specialists in 1995 and rebuilt
from top to bottom according to detailed specifications from the
current vendor.

Not only was the car stripped and re-painted with selected
re-chroming. but a Getrag five-speed gearbox was installed for more
flexible long-distance driving. This was then mated to a full 3. 8
litre engine with a ported and polished head. an unleaded
conversion. triple HD8 carburettors and the correct under-wing 'S'
conversion to a full stainless-steel exhaust.
Suspension takes the form of four Koni shock absorbers with a
four-pot front disc-brake conversion. chrome wire-wheels and Avon
radial tyres and power steering to take the strain.

The interior has been re-trimmed to include a walnut dashboard
and door cappings. inertia reel seatbelts to the front and bespoke
seatbelts to the rear for children. This great-looking example was
designed to be used and. to this end. it also benefits from an
aluminium radiator (and header tank). a full Tilton pedal-box
conversion. up-graded brakes and a modern/period-style audio system
(CD/radio) with four speakers. There are many more additional
details to be found within the history file with the total cost of
these intelligent modifications in excess of £32. 00. Indeed Ian
Mills of Twyford Moors remembers the car and roughly quoted
£130. 00+vat to provide a car of this specification today.

This XK150 represents a true driver's car. owned for the last 16
years by one family and thoroughly enjoyed. Forming part of larger
collection. it is now ready for its next owner and some further
use. such as the great range of national or international rallies
currently on offer; something it has been perfectly designed
for.
