Documentation

Jaguar introduced the XK 150 in 1957 as a replacement to their XK 140. The car was offered in three body styles a fixed-head coupe, drophead coupe and roadster. Notable design changes on the XK 150 included a one-piece windscreen and a door line that was level with the rest of the body of the car. The XK 150 was produced through 1961. It was replaced by the E-Type Jaguar.

The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate included with the car lists this as being an XK 150S that is equipped with a 3.4-liter inline six-cylinder engine that reportedly produces 250-hp, and is connected to a manual transmission. The engine number on the certificate is VS 1690-9 which is matched to the block number which is also VS 1690-9. The cylinder head number on the Jaguar is VS 1675-9. This is 15 numbers off from the block number. Jaguar experts explain that a cylinder head was most likely put on out of order causing this difference in numbers. This was done because the XK 150S received a different cylinder head than a regular XK 150.

Originally the car was finished with Cream paint, Light Blue interior and a Fawn colored soft top. Today the paint is finished in Cream with a black interior and black soft top. The interior of the car features black leather bucket seats and a gauge cluster that is centered on the dashboard, offering both occupants a view of the Smiths gauges. Completing the interior is a dash-mounted rearview mirror. The car rides on knock-off wire wheels which accent the rest of the car’s brightwork beautifully. From 1958-1961, only 1,466 special XK 150S units were built.
