Up for auction is a 1959 Jaguar XK150FHC. This estate purchased car is an older restoration that might have been done about 15 years ago. It has been garage stored.
You can tell by all the welting between the body parts that the car was professionally restored.
The paint color is an outstanding burgundy metallic with a few flaws in the paint such as a few minor chips and one crack approx 3" long that we can find in the paint.
All the chrome and stainless is in excellent condition. The two bumper "guards" look like there is some pitting. maybe from an inexpensive chrome job done on the bumper guards. The plastic emblems on the hood and trunk lid are in excellent condition along with the chrome metal mounting plates. No pits in those.
The electrical system as far as all of the lights and charging system seem to all be in good working order. You can tell by the pictures the seats are in excellent condition along with the carpets and headliner.
All the glass seems to be in very good condition and the rubber around the glass has some cracking in areas but is in decent condition.
Both doors open and close easily and the body lines are excellent.
The car has all five chrome wheels that are in perfect condition. The engine on the car runs absolutely beautiful. It was obvious to us this is where they put a lot of time and effort in. It was a little hard to start because the choke assembly should be readjusted and rebuilt by a Jaguar mechanic.
This car has been stored for quite a few years and a few things will need to be attended to. The brake caliper seals are starting to leak and should be rebuilt. The transmission first gear has a high whine but second. third. and forth are excellent. We drove the car in 2012 to the Monterey Historics (about 50 miles away) and it drove well but the brake pedal was spongy. The best thing for this car is a great home and a great detailing. This car would do good at any show.

We do get our share of deadbeats and goofballs. so occasionally you could see a car listed as "sold" and then see a valid SECOND CHANCE OFFER. It pays to be careful. so just call Mike at the above number if you are contacted for a SECOND CHANCE OFFER. It pays to be safe.
