Jaguar XK 150 FHC
The Jaguar XK models were the sports car to have in their era and they completely won the US market while the big saloons set the reference in the sub-Bentley category. They all offered a superb blend of elegance and performance at a price that set the competition checkmate. On top of it all they won the 24 hour Le Mans no less than 5 times. The 1950s was indeed Jaguars golden years and the pinnacle that bridged their 1950s high-end cars with the iconic E-Type of the 1960s was the fastest of them all, the XK 150.
The XK150 engine did not represent a leap forward compared to the XK 140, but a few minor tweeks with relatively small inlet valves and the bigger exhaust valves from the C-Type head resulted in a slightly improved torque and setting in at a useful 1000 rpm lower than the XK140 gave it the edge. Fitted with big disc brakes on all 4 wheels also gave the fast 210 BHP car the stopping power to match the fast and powerful car.
This lovely XK 150 FHC has been the subject of the last owner’s careful restoration during almost 5 years and is now back on the road in full vigor. The classic color scheme of pearl white and new red leather upholstery suits the car well. Also the mechanics has been restored including a complete engine rebuild. MOT’ed and currently registered for the road on historic Danish license plates it is ready its new owner.
