Exterior: To me it is refreshing to see a Jaguar XK 150 Fixed Head Coupe with silver painted wire wheels. That are fitted with Wredestein Classic Tyres. The entire package with hubs, wheels and tyres are new. The paintwork from 2005 is still very good and there is no sign of any corrosion. Only some small traces of use can be found. Chrome is good and the bumpers are still the original showing small traces of age.
Interior: Wonderful brown leather and new carpets in the same tone. The leather quality is superior and the craftmanship is just beautiful. All the Jaguar instruments are in excellent condition. Updated steering but time period correct steering wheel that has a great feeling. Children can ride in the back of a Jaguar XK 150 and if you need to bring your fishing rod you open the little lid towards the trunk.
Engine: The Jaguar XK 150 FHC engine in this car starts very easy and feels very strong. Recent engine work is new pistons/rings. The crank was grinded and fitted with new bearings. The top was rebuild with new valves. New chain and tensioner. 123 ignition is fitted and it is possible to adjust the powerband curve. The radiator has just been rebuilt and a new water pump has been fitted.
A Jaguar XK 150 for modern driving conditions
The XK 150 FHC keeps cool with an electric fan that you can set when you want it to kick in. To make this classic car fit more in to todays driving condition a Getrag 5 speed gearbox and a new driveshaft has been fitted. And to make sure you will be able to stop when you are flying down the freeway some proper brake callipers have been fitted. The brake servo was just rebuilt and a new master cylinder fitted. For a nice exhaust note a new stainless steel exhaust has been fitted.
History: Like many of the left hand drive classic Jaguar cars we have in Sweden this car was first delivered to USA. It came to Sweden in 1993 and the present owner of the Jaguar XK 150 had it for 22 years. It has been properly maintained over the years and has covered just 1000 km since the last oil change and lubrication.
