1958 Jaguar XK150 S 3.4L Roadster Chassis No. S 830587 DN Engine No. VS 1086-9 (Matching Block & Head) Body No. F 15568 Rare and Desirable S Version of the Final XK150 Series Matching-Numbers Example per Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate Factory Equipped with Powerful 3.4L, 250bhp Twin OHC & Triple HD8 SU Engine 1 of 888 Examples from 1957-1961 - 9,395 total XK150 Production Winter 2020 Inspection, Scheduled Service and Detailing Offered with Manual, Keys, Weather Equipment & Emergency Accessories An Ideal Grand Touring and Rally Capable XK150 S Eligible for Prestigious Events Around the World Although having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150 was radically modernized. A one piece windscreen replaced the split screen, and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the doors. The alloy bonnet was also widened and opened down to the wings. In the cabin, the XK140\'s walnut dashboard was replaced by an elegantly leather trimmed dash. Thinner doors gave the interior needed space as well. Four-wheel Dunlop 12 in. Disc-Brakes appeared for the first time, appropriate for the most refined model of the XK100 series. S830587DN was completed June 2, 1958 and dispatched on the 13th of that month, as a U.S. specification 3.4 Litre S through Jaguar Cars, New York - finished in Carmen Red paint over Black leather upholstery and top. The XK150 S is said to have been a long-term California / Arizona car prior to its early-mid 1990\'s restoration and subsequent sale in 1996. The Roadster ultimately found its way into private care in Pennsylvania, where it would remain under the same ownership for the last 20 years. The car was shown and displayed early on, and casually enjoyed thereafter. Out of long-term ownership, S830587DN presents well, while highly capable as a strong tourer. Carmen Red paintwork (as delivered) is complemented by chrome wire wheels shod in period style 600-16 General whitewall tires, 672/682 Marchall driving lamps, J-Lamp headlights, and plenty of brightwork. A black canvas top folds down to reveal a beautifully trimmed tan leather cabin, with matching tan canvas hood cover. A full-cab, half-zip tonneau protects the driving compartment during open motoring or storage. The interior\'s restoration remains well kept from thoughtful care, and presentable for casual display or continued use. Electric overdrive and factory appointments accentuate the experience, while all lights, instruments, safety equipment, keys and locks remain in working order. With a wrap-around windscreen and roll up windows, the 150s offer a much more pleasant top-down experience than their older siblings. Along with its striking livery, this XK150 excels in drivability, pairing well to beautifully mellowed cosmetics for an immediate carefree driving experience. A Winter 2020 inspection and service included a cooling system refresh, addressing a re-core of the original radiator, all new radiator hoses, thermostat and other consumable items, sway bar bushings, brake master cylinder, all new fluids and filters, along with the aforementioned new 600-16 tires and tubes. Additionally the cosmetics received a nearly thirty-hour detailing from top to bottom including a steam cleaning of the underside. The odometer reads just over 75,000 recorded miles. An appropriately dressed engine bay is orderly and appears authentic in presentation, with proper finishes, hoses, and auxiliary equipment. It retains original identification plaques and its original numbers-matching engine (and head), as verified by Jaguar Heritage Trust - bound in an embossed leather binder. The luggage compartment trimmed in matching biscuit upholstery, comes equipped with jack, wrench, grease gun, Thor hammer, and spare wheel assembly. A dossier of select records from previous ownership accompanies, along with a copy of the Jaguar XK150 Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook.
