Car Catcher: Numbers-Matching Jaguar XK150

The direct replacement for the XK140, the XK150, arrived to the market in 1957 with numerous revisions to both the exterior and the interior while still appearing similar to its predecessors. It was initially available as either a "Fixed-Head Coupe" (FHC) or a "Drop-Head Coupe" (DHC), with a completely open-top version—the "Open Two-Seater" (OTS)—going on sale later in the production cycle.

This example, a 1959 Jaguar XK150 Drop-Head Coupe, is said to come with a numbers-matching, 3.4-liter inline-six engine.

Originally finished in cream over a light blue interior, this Jaguar was repainted in Imperial Maroon with the interior replaced in tan leather as part of a restoration completed in 1987.

Also included in the sale is a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate and a tool kit.

Only problem with the DHC was that it was hard to see over that hulking great folded top sitting on the tonneau panel.  The OTS was much cleaner and you could see behind you.  My Jensen Interceptor convertible had the same issue with rear vision.
