1959 Jaguar XK150 S 3.4 Litre Roadster Matching Numbers
Recently discovered in long-term, single family ownership, this matching number XK150 S is presented in as-found condition and is the ideal candidate for a complete, ground-up restoration. Displaying 44,660 miles on the odometer, this unrestored Jaguar retains its original, matching-numbers engine, chassis, and body per the JDHT certificate on file. Just out of long-term storage and not currently running. It will require mechanical attention prior to road use.
Launched in 1958, the XK150 S represents the ultimate development of Jaguars legendary line of XK sports cars. In its original 3.4-litre form, the S model yielded significant performance dividends, with three SU carburetors, straight-port intake manifolds, and upgraded camshafts contributing 60 hp over the standard XK150. Equipped with Le Mans-proven Dunlop disc brakes, these Jaguars were among the fastest and most comfortable GT cars of the late 1950s. The most sporting version was the Roadster, of which only 888 were built. According to the accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, this XK150 S Roadster was completed on April 23, 1959, finished in the striking color scheme of Black with Red leather upholstery and a Sand soft top. Originally ordered through Jaguar Cars of New York, the Jaguars first owner collected it in Coventry in June 1959, where it was issued registration no. UKV 426.
Given its rarity, ideal specification, handsome colors, and eligibility for some of the most popular driving events and concours, this 3.4-litre XK150 S Roadster represents an exciting opportunity for the enthusiast looking for a worthy and rewarding restoration project.
