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.
From model year 1960 the engine capacity was increased from 3.4L to 3.8L. In October 1960, the XK was succeeded by the E-type. After a production of 9,382 XKs. Of these, 2,672 left the factory as DHC.
The XK 150 DHC 3.8 L from September 1960 offered by us is therefore one of the very last XKs produced!
The Jaguar comes with a folder with many documents. This includes the original American title, which is a nice addition to the history. In addition to the ‘Jaguar Heritage Certificate’, there is also a ‘SCM/Kiwa Alarm System Certificate’ and valuation reports
