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
aluminum centre dash panel with an 'X' pattern engraving was fitted
which looked similar to the early 3. 8 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. 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 original. righthand drive Jaguar XK150SE 3. 8 litre fixedhead
coupé is fitted with an overdrive gearbox and wire wheels. In 2002. br/>the car was subject to a complete restoration and was up-rated with
electric power steering. Kenlow fans and was converted to negative
earth. work which was carried out by M. C. Wilkinson. Purchased by
the vendor a couple of years ago with some overheating problems. on
inspection it was found there was some internal leaking so the
engine was removed from the car and was completely rebuilt fitting
new pistons and liners and grinding the crankshaft. The cylinder
head was also overhauled which included new valves and valve guilds
and converted to run on unleaded fuel. this work carried out by
T&L Engineering (Bedford) Ltd. to the highest of standards.
Finished in Old English White with red leather interior. this
Jaguar comes with a V5C registration document. an MoT test
certificate which expires in December 2013. a collection of
photographs showing the complete restoration. a file containing
invoices including the recent engine rebuild and a number of old
MoT test certificates. With Jaguar prices rising as demand from the
far east increases. this rare righthand drive. 3. 8 litre example is
excellent value if purchased within the estimated price.
