1959 Jaguar XK 150

If you watch the market, you have probably noted that Jaguar XKs are one of the hottest cars of any type. But did you ever stop to wonder why? Well, one drive of this fully restored 1959 Jaguar XK150 will clear everything up for you. They are valuable because they are just as nice to drive (especially at higher speeds) as they are to look at.

The XK150 was a slight evolution of the 140 and for many enthusiasts, it is a good blend of dramatic styling and comfort. For my money, the convertible might just be the prettiest of the three body styles, offering the awesome long nose, short deck that's just pure art in motion. The black paint complements it wonderfully, making this car look serious and mature, just the way a Jaguar should. Paint quality is good, befitting a car that will be more valuable next year than it is today, and there is no metallic in it, so it looks right on the vintage Sheetmetal. Panel fit on these cars was indifferent (they were hand-built, after all) but during the restoration they sorted all that out and it fits together quite nicely today. The chrome was also restored, and while the heavier bumpers were a little less graceful than the 120s, they are in great shape as are the waterfall grille, twin mirrors perched out there on the front "wings" and the beautiful spine of chrome running down the trunk lid. There is simply no angle from which this car does not look spectacular.

Jaguar interiors have long been the source of envy, with a wonderful blend of old-world craftsmanship and materials with sporting design. The XK150 convertible is no different, with handsome red leather buckets. A wood-rimmed steering wheel remains adjustable for reach and the gauges are arrayed in a lovely chunk of real burled walnut, not some veneer. Traditional Smiths gauges are big and easy to read, although the rest of the controls are somewhat random and as a Jaguar owner, you will expect it. There is more wood and leather on the doors, a few touches of chrome. The restoration of this interior was completed by skilled hands using all the top material, and it certainly shows. The coupe also offers a bit of space behind the seat for gear, as well as a nicely appointed trunk for touring.

The 3.4-liter DOHC inline-6 is legendary for its flexibility and howling performance, and while it's muted and polished here, you can still tell that there's a thoroughbred waiting to run that makes a rather substantial 210 horsepower. It barks to life and settles into a decent idle thanks to a pair of side-draft carburetors. The Manual transmission that was used in a myriad of cars in the US and it is a good match, with quick reflexes and proper gear spacing to let the six stay in the fat part of its power curve. The dual exhaust sounds spectacular and nobody can argue with the gorgeous chrome wire wheels and 6.00-16 wide whitewall tires.

Documented maintenance records and receipts dating back to the 1980s, this is a fully restored and a great Jaguar that you can drive and enjoy while it appreciates. Call today!
