I'm auctioning my beautiful, left hand drive, 157k miles, black 1960 Jaguar XK150 SE fixed-head coupe over black interior. The car has been manufactured in late 1960, November to be more accurate, and it was literally one of the last production batches of the model. I know that being a fixed-head coupe may not be as exciting but my car is as close as it gets since one of its features is a nice folding Webasto sunroof but what makes it unique is that one of the previous owners is a guy name Regan (cool coincidence) which used to be a Lieutenant originally from Illinois.
The car has initially been sold in New York, then a guy from UK owned it for a period of time before the car returned to USA for good, back in 1984. Afterwards the car remained in the same family for 32 years, before I got the chance to buy it, but sadly we need to part ways right now. The previous owner meticulously maintained the car, he restored it in early nineties, and he kept a thorough file from the rebuilding process including a photo album. For those of you who don't know the 220 horse power comes from the 3.8 straight six engine (numbers matching, of course) coupled to a manual 4 speed gearbox with Laycock de Normanville electric overdrive.
Going to the body I can say that it has a perfect black finish and everything that I can say is that the body-off restoration process carried in the nineties was performed flawlessly since the car is still in perfect condition almost 30 years later. The chrome has been redone as well back in the nineties and it still looks great. The original wire wheels (16 inches) have been repainted as well and almost two years ago a brand new set of Blockley tires have been fitted to them. Surprisingly the car was equipped, by the factory, with disc brakes all around the car.
Inside the 2+2 interior the classic British elegance and styling are revealed by the beautiful black leather interior with color matched dash padding, door panels & carpets and with the four-spoke steering wheel.
There are some issues with the Smiths instrument clusters in the sense that the back light on the fuel gauge is not working but that is an easy fix.
There are some improvements done to the car, some technical ones, but they just make it even better. There is a stainless-steel exhaust system and fuel tank just to make sure no rust will ever get there in order to prevent engine damage.
The car has a clear title and I'm selling it with the full service records (including restoration pictures), a tool kit, and the Jaguar heritage certificate.
