Footnotes

  • Produced on Friday 29th August 1958, the Jaguar XK150S 3.4-litre roadster offered here is an early example of the "S" variant triple-carburettor model, and only the fourth known to exist with a chassis number starting with the letter "T".

    This stunning car is finished in Carmen Red with black leather interior and black hood. The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms that chassis number 'T831234DN' was despatched to Continental Motors, New Jersey, USA in September 1958, though little is known of the car's life in the USA.

    Re-imported into the UK in July 1991, the XK underwent a total 'chassis upwards' rebuild with right-hand drive conversion during 1992-1993 (photographic record available). The car was purchased by its latest owner in May 1997 and has been used frequently for both pleasure and numerous rallies, including four MSA Euroclassics, two Prix des Alps, many other touring and club events, and holidays throughout the UK.

    A further engine rebuild was carried out in 1997 by Les Trafford of Trafford Competition Engines in Tewksbury, and between June 1997 and March 2000 the car
    was fitted with many mechanical upgrades to improve its driveability for regular use. These included a Getrag five-speed gearbox (with ratios almost identical to the original overdrive 'box), up-rated disc brakes, power steering, and a Kenlowe electric fan, while the limited-slip differential was rebuilt.

    This car is fitted with chrome wire wheels and driver and passenger door mirrors. The original painted wire wheels, knock-off 'spinners', gearbox, and radiator are included in the sale together with a huge file of papers and photographs recording all works carried out over the last 20 years.

    Earlier this year the Jaguar underwent a no-expense-spared 'health check' in preparation for this season's events.

    The car presents extremely well and has great patination only developed over the passage of time and is ready to be used and enjoyed for any touring events or shows. As was stated at the outset, this is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an early XK150S, an actively used example that has completed many excursions, rallies, and shows. They seldom come more honest and authentic than this.
