The matching numbers and colors are endorsed by the present Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The XK150 was completely restored in the recent past and is both optically and technically in top condition. During the restoration the entire technique was overhauled. After the restoration, the car was only used in good weather and is still in superb condition. It is not only the condition of the car that makes it an absolute masterpiece but also the way the car was ordered new. This is ééone of 36 left-hand drive XK150 3.8 Roadsters delivered. The car is equipped with a Carmen red exterior, black hood and black leather interior, in addition, the car was newly ordered with a Laycock de Normanville overdrive that makes it possible to travel long distances in comfort. The car spent a long time in the southern United States and was owned by the same owner for a long time. He has owned the car for 23 years. He only enjoyed the car for a short time écht because when he left for pilot school the car was put in storage and not used for a long time. The car was then purchased by a subsequent owner who brought the car to Europe and restored and rebuilt it to a very high standard. The bodywork of the XK150 therefore looks stunning. The XK150 is in all cases a magnificent car to see but in the version shown here, the Open Two Seater, really the most beautiful. The sheet metal has been beautifully restored and is nice and thin everywhere. It goes without saying that the parts fit perfectly. The convertible top was of course completely renewed during the restoration and is also in top condition. The hood is easy to operate and fits everywhere perfectly. The chrome on the bumpers and wheels was completely redone and also looks great. Finally, the car was painted in its original color: Carmen Red. The chassis of the car is of course also in top condition. At first glance, the beautiful overall condition of the exterior of the car stands out, if we take a closer look, that picture is only further confirmed. The interior is also restored with a great sense of originality. It is not only the upholstery that looks and feels wonderful but also the dashboard and instruments. The carpets are very well fitted and fit beautifully throughout. The dashboard was also completely reupholstered during the restoration. Needless to say, the instruments and controls all function as they should and look beautiful. The black leather on the seats is practically in new condition. Of course, the seats were also refilled during the restoration. The 3.8 engine has been subjected to a complete overhaul as well as the transmission, lower, differential and brakes. The car drives to also fantastic. The engine produces those wonderful and characteristic six-in-line sounds and makes the XK150 OTS still a fast car even by today's standards. The overdrive ensures that you don't have to rev too much on the highway and can make the most of the engine's strong mid-range. The transmission is precise and the brakes are easy to apply. The car drives exactly as the exterior suggests: top! The car comes with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, a photo series of the restoration and some general information about the vehicle. In short, a beautiful and very significant Jaguar XK150 Open Two Seater.
