Car to be at auction 1/14
www.bonhams.com/auctions/21392/lot/141/

Auction description:
Lot 141
100 point JCNA status, over 80 Concours wins
1958 Jaguar XK150S 3.4-Liter Roadster
US$ 170,000 - 200,000
€120,000 - 150,000
Chassis no. S830856DN
Engine no. VS1205-9

*'Best of the Best' XK150S
*More than 80 Concours wins
*100 point JCNA status
*Matching numbers, factory left hand drive example
*One of approximately 200 built with factory close-ratio gearbox

There can be few cars of this marque or model that can lay claim to such achievement in Concours events across this country. Over the course of the last 15 years, the XK150S offered here has won more than 80 Concours awards, including numerous 'Best in Class' trophies at the most prestigious and competitive venues. These have included Greenwich, Meadow Brook Hall, Radnor Hunt, St. Michael's, and the AACA Nationals, in addition to a large number of marque specific events. Today, the car still holds 100 point status with the Jaguar Club of North America; in 2012 it was National Champion, a position it has held since 1998.

That the car came to be in such extraordinary condition is testament to its owners, keen enthusiasts of British motorcars, and reflects their passion, keen eye for detail and quality workmanship.

An original U.S. delivered example, the 'S' was built on July 3, 1958 and supplied to this country through Jaguar Cars New York. It was delivered with the exact technical specification and matching numbers components that it retains today, as verified by its Jaguar Cars Inc. Heritage Report. Although the first owner is not recorded on this listing, we do know that it wore Carmen Red paintwork, had a black top and interior and was equipped with a very rare close ratio gearbox and overdrive. It would be one of only approximately 200 cars which the company built to this specification.

The car's early years are not charted in documents, but hearsay suggests that this sporting Jaguar was raced in both the U.S. and Australia. Long retired from such activities, it was discovered by the current owners in Pennsylvania in 1990. They were fortunate to have one of the country's finest artisans in the restoration of the marque, Olde York Classic, of York, Pennsylvania close to their home, and entrusted them with a full rebuild of the car. In completing the restoration, exacting detail features including the original 'J' headlights, original gaiters for the rear springs, a correct radio and original owners manual, itself complete with annual maintenance chart, were sourced - items which are so often copied, but rarely are originals as found on this car.

This exhaustive process took more than five years from start to finish. During the rebuild and reflecting a love of all things British, a Racing Green livery was chosen, with a contrasting biscuit leather interior and cloth top. With only 125 road miles covered since it was completed, and detailed to the highest degree, the car looks today much as it did when the exacting rebuild was finalized. The choice of colors can only be considered a huge success as it has garnered many People's Choice awards alongside its technical accolades.

Bonhams can only endorse the judgments of so many experts across the country who have consistently prized and placed this car above all others they have seen. It is an utterly beautiful example, which should comfortably provide its next owner with further awards, or hold its own among any world class collection of automobiles.
