Lot 058: 1958 JAGUAR XK150 SE DROPHEAD COUPE

Motor Car Sale, H&H Sales Limited (13 September 2006)

Finished in deep metallic blue with tan leather upholstery, this particular example is considered to be in good overall condition save for some paintwork imperfections. Beginning life as a very early right-hand drive 'Special Equipment' Drophead Coupe (the seventeenth car built - or so its chassis number would imply), we understand that 'OSU 612' has since been mechanically upgraded with a 3.8 litre Jaguar engine and five-speed Getrag manual gearbox. Nicely trimmed, its interior sports a wood rimmed steering wheel and after-market wood veneer dashboard (though, the hood mechanism has apparently caught the lining in one or two places). Said by the vendor to "drive extremely well" and to have passed a recent MOT test without needing any work, it benefits from smart chromework (including comparatively new wire wheels). Showing an unwarranted 67,613 miles on its odometer, this handsome Jaguar is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until May 29th 2007 and historic class (free) road tax until May 2007.
