The manually geared 1957 Jaguar XK 150 DHC on offer at Classic Park is in very good condition. The particularly stylish color combination with a white exterior and dark red mohair hood combines beautifully with the red leather interior and chrome wire wheels. The bottom-side of the car is in a particularly crisp state, the chassis is black and the body is painted at the bottom as well, as it should.
This is a beautiful XK with a friendly price tag in good condition, a lovely car to participate in classic rallies.
The XK150 was manufactured by Jaguar between 1957 and 1961 and was the successor of the XK140. Although the car was clearly related to the XK120 and XK140 the exterior was completely redesigned. Striking difference with its predecessors was the one-piece windshield. The nose had a more modern design and was elongated. The dashboard was no longer executed in Walnut but leather, and the interior was slightly more spacious.
The standard XK150 was equipped with the 3.4 liter DOHC Jaguar straight-six, but most customers prefer a SE engine with modified cylinder head and larger exhaust valves that boosted its performance to 210 hp at 5500 rpm.
However, the first XK150 was still slower than its predecessor. In 1958 a 3.4 liter "S" engine was introduced with three 51mm SU HD8 carburettors that boosted power up to 250 hp.
When production ceased 2,265 roadsters, 4445 Fixed Head Coupes and 2672 Drophead Coupes had been made.
