This original UK specification Jaguar XK150 FHC was manufactured on the 19th March 1958. The car was sold new by Henlys, London and the car has remained in its original colour since. This fabulous driving XK holds a high level of originality, in particularly the lovely red leather trim.
On first glance, the XK presents very well with a nice paint finish and very smart chrome. On closer inspection, there is evidence that the car is an older restoration likely to have been painted in the late 80's, early 90's. Minor blemishes can be noticed, particularly around front sidelights as so often the case with these older restorations. The body is very straight with good panel work and doors that close nicely. The Jaguar does present well and is further enhanced by an excellent set of chrome wire wheels, very smart chrome bumpers and a beautifully detailed and highly polished engine bay area. The interior holds what appears to be lovely original red leather and excellent carpets to match a smart headlining, dashboard and door cards.
On road test TSV 417 is outstanding with excellent performance. The history file documents extensive work carried out by Guy Broad from 2001 to 2004. This work included a full engine rebuild with all invoices and some photographs present. Invoices from this period total over £16,000 and the result of this is evident upon driving the car.
Overall a very charming XK that is ideal for regular or long distance use.
