Jaguar introduced the XK150 in mid-1957 as a response to such recently introduced rivals as the BMW 507 and the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Initially, the XK150 was only available as a fixed head or drophead coupe. The XK150 resembled a radically revised version the XK120 and XK140 family. Most notably, a single-piece windscreen took the place of the split screen used in previous XKs, and the wing line did not drop as deeply as it had before. Many different color options were also introduced with the XK150. The walnut dashboard used in earlier XKs was replaced with leather trim. Thinner doors allowed for more interior space within the XK150. A red “reminder-light” was added to the parking lights located on top of the fenders which alerted the driver that the headlights were on. Recognizing the popularity of Jaguar’s victories at the Le Mans circuit throughout the 1950s, the XK150 took on a sleeker appearance than its predecessors with a recessed bulkhead and extended hood line. The Jaguar XK150 was a very refined sports car that gave outstanding performance in a beautiful package.

Offered here is a fine example of Jaguar’s heritage, a 1958 XK150, finished in a lustrous black. This 150 embodies the splendid tradition of the British sports car. Style is defined in this car’s beautifully sculptured lines and brilliant chrome wire wheels. A signature badge on the rear deck proudly proclaims Jaguar’s victories at Le Mans. The red leather seats provide comfort and contribute to the well-maintained look of this car and the matching leather dashboard beautifully caresses its racing-style gauges. While originally outfitted with a 3.4-litre engine, this XK150 is has been outfitted with a 3.8-litre twin cam six-cylinder producing up to 265 horsepower. The engine is neat and well-kept, and this car runs as well as it looks. This XK150 handles very well with help from an independent A-arm/torsion bar front suspension coupled with a leaf-spring mounted live rear axle. Four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes come in very handy for stopping this 3,330-pound car with a top speed of 123 miles per hour. Recent restoration work on this car includes a brand new black mohair top, as well as a tune up and evaluation completed at Blue Ridge Sports Cars of North Carolina. While this car is not a completely restored 150, it will hold its own at many concours events and it is very impressive.

Jaguar’s family of fine XK cars remains a legend on the race track and road alike. This XK150 makes the perfect car for a Sunday drive in the countryside or as an exhibition on the concours level show field. This car is in splendid condition and represents a well-cared for specimen that is perfectly suitable for both driving and showing purposes.
