Chassis no: S824016
1957 Jaguar XK150 RHD FHC.
Chassis number: S824016
Registration number: 0AYN834 (Belgium).
A very very early Jaguar XK150 FHC. Indeed this is the earliest known RHD FHC XK150 known being the 16th unit to come down the production line at Browns Lane. When new it was sent straight to the rust free balmy climes of South Africa & also spent time in Botswana according to the token of insurance decal in the windscreen.
The car is finished in lightly patinated dark blue paint. It is not concours perfect but is very presentable making it a very useable car. To the interior is lovely tan Leather throughout in wonderful condition. The story goes on under the bonnet where we find the lusty 3.4 litre twin cam in robust health starting readily & pulling strongly. The engine drives through a standard Moss gear box as would be expected.
The car was imported to Belgium from South Africa & has formed part of a small collection of cars which is now being disbanded. I have to stress how utterly rot free & solid this car is. Looking at its underside whilst on a ramp I was pleasantly surprised at its wonderfully preserved overall condition.
The car sits on four knock off wire wheels shod with nearly new tyres.. A leaper Jaguar mascot is affixed to the bonnet. I have to stress how straight honest & useable this Jaguar is. It has just been serviced so is absolutly ready to go. Viewings are near Ghent in Belgium, but will come to us once we have disposed of some of the other cars in the collection. It is the kind of car that puts a smile upon your face the moment you set foot in it.
