The Jaguar XK150 was manufactured between 1957 and 1961 and despite having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150 was radically modernised. A one piece windscreen replaced the split screen and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the doors. The bonnet was widened, opened down to the wings and, on the roadster; the bulkhead was moved back four inches to make the bonnet longer. In the interior, the XK140's walnut dashboard was replaced by a leather trimmed unit. The standard engine, the same as fitted to the XK140, was the 3.4 litre Jaguar straight six rated at 180bhp at 5750rpm but most cars were fitted with the SE engine that had a modified cylinder head with larger exhaust valves rated at 210bhp at 5500rpm. These were high performance, well-appointed sports touring cars and could cope with long distances with alacrity.     Originally built for the export market and delivered directly to New York, this (non-original engined) factory-correct 3.4 litre model has since been converted back to righthand drive. Upon acquisition by the previous vendor, the body of this manual example was found to be in good condition, the only areas requiring some work were both doors and door-step areas. During the restoration, the metal parts of the floor were also removed and replaced. On the inside, the interior is smart with the original trim, new wooden dashboard with original instruments. The chromework of both original bumpers is excellent. The brakes have been rebuilt and upgraded with replacement discs with all works fully documented in the history file, complete with valid MoT test certificate with no advisories. Extensive re-wiring has also taken place to bring this example into a position of reliability with over £4,000 spent on various improvements. A full professional re-paint took place in 2012 and all spares, tools, jacks and handbook are included and the resultant XK150 represents a very fine example of the marque indeed.
