Imagine how glamorous you’d look stepping out onto the red carpet from behind the wheel of this classic British beauty – you’d feel like Hollywood royalty. This Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe was born into an era when British sports cars ruled the world, and in particular were the monarchs of American motoring.
So it seems highly appropriate that this fully restored left-hand drive example was first registered in New York, way back in 1959. And as a measure of how treasured a possession it has been over the years, it has had only two owners in all that time, although it did spend several years in a respected American motoring museum. To the best of our knowledge, the XK150 was restored about 10 years ago in the US: it holds a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. And, frankly, it’s the best classic Jaguar restoration we’ve ever come across.
We think that the combination of classic English White coachwork and plush red leather interior is the perfect complement to the XK150’s swooping lines and glitzy character; the whitewall tyres and chromed wire-spoke wheels lend it the final touch of razzmatazz. This car also boasts automatic transmission – a near-essential for its previous life Stateside – ‘Speed Hold’, an early form of cruise control, and air-conditioning. Glamour and convenience – who could ask for more from their 1950s classic?
And just a quick word about those chic wire-spoke wheels. Each wheel has a front and rear half and the spokes are interlaced front to rear to tie them together for maximum strength and durability.
The XK150 is a burbling, purring delight to drive on the open road and helps soothe away the stresses of the modern world. And even when you’ve not got the time to take it out, just a glimpse of it through your garage door will make everything right with the world.
