Vehicle Description

This car could possibly be the best unrestored XK150 in the world. It is a numbers matching car complete with documentation stretching back to its initial sale in Los Angeles. It also has its original tool kit and a vacuum tube AM radio which still works. It has spent most of its life in the bone dry desert of Palm Springs, California. The panels have not been adjusted and are just as they left the factory. The chrome (including the wheels and leaping cat) is all totally original and some carries the very light patina of its 54 years whilst other parts are like new. The car was repainted (changed from Black to Primrose Yellow) and re-trimmed (changed from Red to Green) about 25 years ago as the Palm Springs sun is hard on enamel and leather. The convertible top was also replaced (changed from Sand to Black). An engine sump gasket leak developed last month and during its replacement the oil pump was also replaced. Additionally all of the suspension rubber components were replaced and the brakes were also serviced. The two 6 volt batteries have been replaced with one 12 volt unit. The car is still positive ground and retains its original generator which was recently serviced. Mileage is 78,500. The car still has its factory fitted Borg-Warner automatic gearbox, which makes it a delight to drive; no struggling with the heavy clutch and the brutal Moss box; as a female this is greatly appreciated. The spare tire compartment is a real time warp as the factory spot welds are still clearly visible in its original totally corrosion free state. In the 8 years I have had the car in Canada, it has been kept in my heated shop and has never been driven in the rain; and it rarely rains in Palm Springs. Please email for a full photo package.
Unfortunately, there are people out there who will use classifieds to get your money. Here are some ways to avoid these scams. Use skepticism and good judgment.
  1. Be wary if the price is notably below market value.
  2. Be prudent with International transactions. A good number of buyer/seller fraud attempts originate from overseas.
  3. Confirm contact information. Legitimate buyers/sellers will provide valid information, including phone.
  4. In almost every case scammers will convey a sense of urgency.
