XK 150 ‘RACER’
This former XK 150 DHC is a real head turner and a very nice sportscar to drive.
However the car has a race provenance in the USA the car is completely road legal and comers with a Dutch registration what makes registration in other countries easy.

We have had the car for several years in our private collection and now we are looking for a Jaguar enthusiast to drive this ‘special’

This XK 150 left the factory as a XK150 DHC, 3.4 Litre December 1957 in a Cream over Tan color combo.

The car benefits from upgrades like 3 SU Carbs, power steering, a uprated brake system and several race aspects like tank, main switch and race pedal.

The ‘racer ‘is a good driver with an impressing sound.

The body work what was done on the car is all aluminum, the bonnet and the bootlid are original.
Engine block is matching with Certificate and data plate.

Not for purists and originality freaks but for lovers of a rather special Jaguar 150 ‘RACER’

Description of the car by the former owner:

This car was built in the late 1980’s into a vintage race car by longtime Jaguar enthusiast in Ohio. Car was campaigned all over the east coast and scoring many victories.

About 5 years ago the car was taken off the track and converted to street use using many of the performance parts developed over the last 25 years. Car has a 3.4 engine built by Jerry Mong I understand the car has racing rods and many other excellent quality parts in the engine.

Three 2″ SU carbs. Alternator conversion and power steering has been installed, a little noisy when cold. Original radiator with electric cooling fan. Jaguar E-Type close ratio gearbox. Spax adjustable shock absorber’s, upgraded front sway bar. Jaguar XK 150 disc and calipers all around and handbrake. Custom made side exiting exhaust system with muffler. Plastic fuel cell. Interior has vinyl covered seats with 3 point retractable seat belts. I am 6′ 4″ and fit In the car no problem.

Original dash retained. Paint is in very nice condition but does have a few nicks and scratches. The custom roll bar is removable.

This car would be ideal for road rallies or just for spirited street driving, or with some minor changes could be made back into a full fledged Vintage racer.
