History of the Jaguar XK 150
The Jaguar XK 150 was announced in England in 1957 in order to meet US demand for more comfortable sports cars. The XK 150 uses a wider body and floorplan than its predecessor, the XK 140 (Old post about XK 140 Drophead Coupé ).
1955 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupé (Bonhams)
Jaguar added Dunlop disc brakes at all wheels for the first time on a series-production car. Three different coachworks was available :
- fixed head coupé (FHC),
- drophead coupé (DHC),
- roadster or open two-seater.
The Jaguar XK 150 has a 3.4 litre DOHC straight-6 XK engine producing 180 hp at 5750 rpm.
This model, finished dark green over tan, is original left-hand-drive with Laycock de Normanville overdrive and was fully restored 5 years ago. Very nice...
