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 one trimmed in leather and chrome. On the early
drophead coupés. an aluminium 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. 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. These were high
performance. well appointed sports touring cars capable of 137mph
and 0-60 in 7. 8 seconds and could accomplish long distances with
alacrity.

A recent barn find in America. this XK150 SE drophead coupé has
been bought back to these shores in need of near total restoration.
A previous project has begun the restoration process and therefore
a good rust free chassis and body accompany almost every part
needed to restore this XK to its former beauty. It is thought that
an engine and gearbox rebuild will be necessary but original
components are all available for reconditioning. This particular SE
is a lefthand drive manual with overdrive variant and has a 3. 8
litre engine with red leather interior trim. This is an exciting
opportunity to fully restore this beautiful classic to exactly your
own specification and for which values are noticeably climbing.
