The 1957 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe and Fixed Head Coupe would start off the third and final generation of Jaguars famous XK line of sports cars; the Roadster body style would be delayed until 1958. During this round of production, lasting from 1957 to 1961, minimal (often called occasional) seats were fitted in both Coupe models. While the 1957 Jaguar XK150 had a family resemblance to the XK140, the new model was drastically revised to bring buyers a whole new Jaguar XK experience. A one-piece windshield would replace the split screen and the deep wing line no longer dropped so deeply at the doors. The front hood was widened down to the wings and on the Roadster the frame was moved back almost four inches to make the hood longer as well. This time, the XK150 was available in Red, Pearl Grey, White, Indigo Blue, Claret, Cotswold Blue, Black, Mist Grey, Sherwood Green, Carmen Red, British Racing Green, Cornish Grey and Imperial Maroon.
