Rusted Jaguar XK150 ‘is not as rough as it looks’
This 1959 Jaguar XK150 DHC attracted so many critical comments when it appeared for sale on bringatrailer.com that the car’s long-time owner and vendor joined the fray to defend it.
At first glance it does look extraordinarily rough – but that’s no surprise as it has spent three decades outside in Canada. However, the seller insisted the chassis was pretty solid, and even though it retains its original power unit, a spare engine and gearbox were included in the sale.
For a brave restorer the maximum bid of $19,750 (£15,375) might have felt like a good buy.
The interior’s no better – but hopefully this XK can be saved
