Announced in its home market in May 1957, the XK150 bore a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140 but was radically revised. A one-piece windscreen replaced the split screen and the wing line no longer dropped so deeply at the doors. The widened bonnet opened down to the wings and on the open two-seater, the windscreen frame was moved back 4 inches (102 mm) to make the bonnet longer. The car was available at various times in Red, Pearl Grey, White, Indigo Blue, Claret, Cotswold Blue, Black, Mist Grey, Sherwood Green, Carmen Red, British Racing Green, Cornish Grey, and Imperial Maroon. The XK140's walnut dashboard was replaced by one trimmed in leather. On the early drophead coupes, the aluminium centre dash panel, which was discontinued after June 1958, had an X pattern engraving similar to the early 3.8 E-Type. Thinner doors gave more interior space. The front parking lights, located atop the wings, carried a little red light to remind the driver the lights were on. Suspension and chassis were very similar to the XK140 and steering was by rack and pinion; power steering was not offered. The standard engine - similar to the XK140, but with a new "B" type cylinder head - was the 3.4 litre DOHC Jaguar straight-6 rated at 180 SAE bhp at 5750 rpm. While the first closed and convertible XK150s were slower than their predecessors, the deficit was corrected in the spring of 1958 with the March release -- delayed twelve months by the February 1957 factory fire -- of Special Equipment models, fitted with disc brakes and an engine using twin 1.75-inch (44 mm) SU HD6 carburettors and a modified (B type) cylinder head with larger exhaust valves. Together they boosted the power to 210 SAE bhp at 5500 rpm. Most export cars were SE models. There was a third option for the open two-seater, an 'S' engine with three 2-inch (51 mm) SU HD8 carburettors and a straight-port cylinder head. Fitting these options increased power to a claimed 250 SAE bhp. For 1960 there was the new option of the 3.8 litre engine, available since October 1958 in Jaguar's Mark IX and rated at 220 hp (164 kW; 223 PS). Tuned for the XK150S, its output was 265 hp (198 kW; 269 PS). A 3.8 litre 150S could top 135 mph (217 km/h) and go from 0--60 mph in around 7.0 seconds. Fuel economy was 18mpg. Four-wheel Dunlop 12-inch (305 mm) disc brakes appeared for the first time, although it was theoretically possible to order a car with drums. On leaving the factory, the car originally fitted either 6.00 x 16 Dunlop Road Speed tyres as standard, or 185VR16 Pirelli Cinturato CA67 as a radial option, on either 16 x 5 1/2 K solid wheels (basic models) or 16 x 5K wire wheels. Production ended in October 1960 and totalled 2265 roadsters, 4445 fixed head coupes and 2672 drophead coupes. The E-Type replacement was announced in the middle of March 1961. Indigo Blue coachwork with black hood, all in excellent condition. Biscuit leather interior in excellent condition. Original 3.8 litre engine with 9.1 CR cylinder head, manual gearbox, disc brakes. Recent service invoices, including new disc pads. A fully restored car benefiting from a professional restoration in New Zealand in the early / mid 2000's. The work was carried out to a high standard and included a conversion to right hand drive. At some earlier period, the automatic transmission had been updated to a manual four-speed gearbox. The combination of the Indigo Blue paint and biscuit trim provides an appealing colour combination and, following restoration, the XK has been well placed in Concourse events in New Zealand. It has more recently taken part in European rallies and holidays in Scotland and Portugal. A well restored and maintained car, ready for immediate use.
