This Jaguar XK 150 DHC, as offered by Classic Park, is fully restored. To improve ride comfort, a modern gearbox was fitted during this restoration. Photos are included with the car. This Jaguar has a Dutch registration. The car is not matching numbers, but it is in a very good condition.
The XK150 was produced by Jaguar between 1957 and 1961 and was the successor of the XK140. Obviously, the XK150 is related to the XK120 and XK140, but it is completely redesigned. A remarkable difference is the front wind screen made out of one piece. The front was more modern and longer. The dashboard was updated from wooden trim to leather and the interior was a bit more spacious thanks to thinner doors.
The XK150 was equipped with the 3.4 litre inline-six with double overhead camshafts, but most of the buyers went for the engine with the modified cylinder head and bigger exhaust valve which gave the car a higher output of 210 bhp. However, the first XK150s were slower than their predecessor. The year 1958 brought an engine update to overcome this complaint. The modified 3.4S engine had three carburettors that upped the horsepower to 250. That version of the XK150 had a top speed of 212 km/h and a 0-100km/u time of 7.8 seconds.
When production ended in 1961, 2265 Roadsters, 4445 Fixed Head Coupes and 2673 Drophead Coupes were built, making a total of 9383 XK150’s.
