DXS 880 was one of the last XK's produced. This scarce 3.8 manual o/d XK was first registered on the 24th December 1960 in Paisley, Glasgow and only records two former keepers on the V5 from new. The original 'buff' logbook has stayed with the car stating the first long term owner was Director of a Brasswork Company in Paisley itself. The mileage of 62,000 is believed genuine but cannot be guaranteed. We can see the suede green interior shows many signs of originality and the front seats have been recently re-upholstered and now give the interior a stunning look.
The last Irish owner of over 20 years had a bare chassis restoration carried out in the 1990's and a photo record of some of the work is present within a comprehensive history file. Several tax discs accompany the car dating back to 1962. An MOT certificate from 1969 is present along with a Northern Ireland MOT's dating from 1996 onwards.
This XK has excellent straight rust free panels finished with a high quality standard of paint in the cars original colour of Sherwood Green. The car has beautiful chrome all round and nice powder coated wire wheels. The engine compartment is very clean and the boot area immaculate.
On the road our XK150 is outstanding with a fabulous engine holding excellent oil pressure. This is a tight driving car with a nice gearbox and superb handling and performance.
A great find as XK's with this detail and background are not easy to come across.
