This fascinating motor car started life as a standard XK150 3.4 Litre Special Equipment model fitted with Laycock de Normanville overdrive. It was first registered in May 1958 and was finished in Cornish Grey. According to the original buff logbook which is on file the XK went through 5 different owners in the first 12 years of it’s life, starting in Tottenham, before going to Surrey, then back into London to Putney before returning to Surrey again. In the early 1970’s the car was purchased by a Mr. Michael Dove of Horndon-on-the-Hill in Essex. He would keep the car until 2002. The next owner was a Mr.  Baker-Bates who had a dream of buying a British car from his youth and making it perform like a modern car whilst retaining its character and looks. With the help of respected Jaguar specialist, Paul Roach, this car was found, in need of restoration and bought in 2002. From here, what can only be described as a complete redesign of the XK150 began. Over the course of the next 3 to 4 years the car was completely rebuilt using a 4.2 litre XJ6 engine with fuel injection and throttle bodies that resemble carburettors. uprated suspension, cross drilled disc brakes, power steering, a limited slip differential, air conditioning and electric windows! The car has been completely retrimmed with lovely Burgundy leather seats, again from an XJ6 for better lateral support, and new carpets all round. The result is a monster of a car with huge amounts of power and torque but the creature comforts of a much more modern car. The bills on file total a staggering £138,000 GBP an eye watering amount but probably significantly less than if one tried to do the same today. If you are looking for a 50’s British hot rod, this is it.
