1958 XK150 S LHD 3.4 Roadster
This remarkable XK150 is a highly desirable 3.4 S Roadster and is likely to be one of the most original surviving examples.
Constructed in 1958, this XK150 was one of 846 3.4 S Roadsters built in LHD and was exported to the United States and delivered to its first owner, a Mr Harold Sunshine of Patterson, New Jersey. Mr Sunshine, the owner of a textile design company and a keen Jaguar enthusiast, retained the car for 11 years before selling it to its second owner, a Mr Anthony R Conigliaro of Brooklyn, New York, in 1969. Mr Conigliaro was another sports car fan and the proprietor of Maranello Garages Inc. which focused on the repair of Ferrari’s, Jaguars and other European cars. After only one year’s use and with just over 21,000 miles on the odometer, the XK150 was put into dry storage on blocks, where it remained for almost 45 years until it was repatriated in 2015 to only its third owner. On its return to the UK the car’s incredibly low mileage and wonderfully preserved original condition were immediately evident and a testament to the car’s limited number of owners and extended period of storage.
With factory original engine and gearbox, original paint and wonderfully patinated interior and accompanied by a correct set of tools and delivery literature this XK150 would be an excellent candidate for a sensitive preservation-class recommissioning. Alternatively the car would provide an excellent basis for a full chassis off concours winning restoration.
