The XK 150 was different in 1958 from the original XK line started ten years earlier. As such, it can actually be considered a separate model. This was partly due to the fact that the XK140 could no longer be built due to a major fire in the production halls of Jaguar in February 1957. When the factory was rebuilt, the XK150 was introduced in May 1958. The XK 150 had clearly evolved lines and was more in line with the increased streamlining of cars of the time. The 150 also offers a solution for people who do not fit well in the XK 120 or 140, because the interior is a lot more spacious compared to its predecessors. The production line of the XK had been a very successful one so far, so there was no reason to switch to a completely new concept. For example, little was changed in the technology, except that things that were still optional on the XK 140 were now supplied as standard, such as disc brakes at the front and rear. The model range remained the same with three versions: the Open Two Seater (OTS), the Drop Head Coupé (DHC) and the Fixed Head Coupé (FHC) as a closed version.

The Jaguar comes with a folder with various documents. This includes the original American title, which is a nice addition to the history. The original instruction booklet is also present.

The car was exported from Florida (USA). The current Belgian owner has had various technical improvements/modifications carried out in recent years. The brakes, exhaust, shock absorbers, steering rod and the automatic cooling fin have been replaced.
Three-point seat belts with head restraints have also been fitted as a modification.

The paint and bodywork are in great condition. The fittings of the sills, fenders, doors, hood, trunk lid and grille are very nice.
