THE JAGUAR XK150

"The Jaguar XK150 is undeniably one of the world's fastest and safest cars. It is quiet and exceptionally refined mechanically, docile and comfortable... we do not know of any more outstanding example of value for money." - The Autocar

What would turn out to be the final glorious incarnation of Jaguar's fabulous 'XK' series of sports cars arrived in 1957. As its nomenclature suggests, the XK150 was a progressive development of the XK120 and XK140, retaining the same basic chassis, 3.4-liter engine and 4-speed Moss transmission of its predecessors while benefiting from a new, wider body that provided increased interior space and improved visibility courtesy of a single-piece wrap-around windscreen, replacing the XK140's divided screen.

Cleverly, the new body used many XK120/140 pressings, the increased width being achieved by means of a 4"-wide central fillet. A higher front wing line and broader radiator grille were other obvious differences, but the new model's main talking point was its Dunlop disc brakes. Fade following repeated stops from high speed had been a problem of the earlier, drum-braked cars, but now the XK had stopping power to match its prodigious straight-line speed.

Introduced in the spring of 1957, the XK150 was available at first only in fixed and drop head coupe forms, the open roadster version not appearing until the following year. At 190bhp, the standard 3.4-liter engine's maximum power output was identical to that of the XK140, so performance was little changed. Overdrive and a Borg-Warner automatic gearbox were the transmission options, the latter becoming an increasingly popular choice, while a Thornton Powr-Lok limited-slip differential was available for the XK150S.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at Jaguar's legendary Browns Lane factory on the 10th of June, 1958, this Jaguar XK150 Roadster was delivered in the beautiful combination of Cream (also referred to as Old English White) over red leather with a fawn colored soft top. The car was configured as it appears today, with a left-hand drive steering arrangement and overdrive on the 4-speed manual gearbox. Being one of the 1,173 cars to be exported, the car was later dispatched to Jaguar Cars of New York on the 26th of June, 1958. The powerful Jaguar XK150 Roadster was later purchased by the late, renowned Arlington, Texas based collector Mr. Arnold E. Petsche, and would be retained in his impressive, climate-controlled collection until 2018.

This XK150 Roadster received a comprehensive restoration in recent years by the very capable hands of Jeff's Resurrections Fine Motoring Restorations based in Taylor, Texas. Jeff Snyder is well known in the Jaguar world, and his company is very accomplished with Jaguar restorations. The car was restored to match its factory delivered livery, and even today the car presents in beautiful form. The body is in impressive condition, with good panel fitment, while the paint is still shining strong. The engine bay shows very nicely, with engine operation running smooth and the transmission shifts and functions well.

The interior is in fine condition showing very little patina since the restoration. The car did receive a special burlwood dash which replaced the leather covered dash panels, and contrasts quite nicely against the classic wood-rimmed steering wheel the red leather interior. Included with the sale of the car is a knock-off wheel hammer, jack, grease gun, and a binder which contains photos of the restoration, an original Operation Owner's Manual and the Jaguar Heritage Trust issued Heritage Certificate.

Sparingly driven since its restoration, this matching numbers XK150 3.4-liter Roadster is in lovely overall condition and would make quite the statement in any collection, on the show field, or on a rally such as the Copperstate 1000.
