Jaguar XK150 SE 3.4 Fixed Head Coupe 1959 (Historic Plate) Black
According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this stunning UK RHD Jaguar XK150 SE 3.4 Litre Fixed Head Coupe - VIN No: S 824805 DN - Engine No: V 5949-8 is an all 'Matching Numbers' car and was built at Jaguar's Browns Lane factory in Coventry on 10th March 1959 and sold by P J Evans in Birmingham to its first owner a Mr R A Woodward from Birmingham and registered on 16th April 1959 with the number plate YOC 500 which it still retains today.
This car is designated as an 'SE' - Special Equipment model and only 753 of these versions were made, so this is a very rare car today!
It is finished in its original specification of Black with its original Red Leather Trim, new Red Carpets, refurbished Burr Walnut Dashboard, 3.4 Litre S6 Engine, 4 Speed Gearbox with Overdrive, Cooper-Craft front Brakes, new 'Electric Power Steering' and Chrome Wire Wheels.
There are letters and hand-written receipts from the first 3 owners in the history file confirming the originality and mileage of the car when each of them sold the car and it was most noticeably sold by Jaguar XK specialist Twyford Moors to a Mr Peter Reid from Dorchester, Dorset on 20th December 2007 when the mileage covered was only 27,276.
Mr Reid kept the car for seven years and he kept a full log of all of his expenditure on the car over these 7 years which amounted to almost £30,000 and this included an Engine rebuild in April 2009 with the mileage at 29,348 miles and a full body restoration and repaint in 2010. Copies of every invoice for this expenditure is contained in the history file.
Mr Reid sold the car to the previous owner Mr David Carr from Ringwood in Hampshire in September 2014 when the mileage was 42,516 and he had the car serviced by Independent Jaguar specialist Hollygrove in Ringwood until moving to London in 2015 when the car went to well-known Jaguar specialist Chris Coleman of the Jaguar Workshop in Ealing, West London. He has also spent almost £10,000 on the car during his ownership including the fitting of 'Electric Power Steering' (£4,620) in 2017. The mileage on the speedometer now is 48,460 and it has therefore only covered 20,000 miles since the Engine was rebuilt in 2009.
The car has an exceptional service history with a ring-binder full of invoices, MOT certificates, ownership history and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. It is beautiful to drive and we recommend that it should be seen and driven to be fully appreciated.
Upon sale the car will come with our own customer care package including a new MOT (although exempt), pre sales Service, HPI/provenance Checks, 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
