Selling a 1957 Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe
If you’re thinking about selling a 1957 Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe, you’ve come to the right place! The Jaguar XK150, the third and final release of the popular Jaguar XK sports car line, would launch in 1957 to replace the Jaguar XK140, which had run from 1954. Offered as a Fixed Head Coupe, a Drop Head Coupe and a Roadster, the XK150 was radically modernized and was easily identified by its new curved windshield. The 1957 Jaguar XK150 also marked the adoption for Dunlop disc brakes, which were the focal point of Jaguar’s sales brochures noting their history in the Jaguar racing cars of the era. Described as the car for the “motorist who likes sports car zest in a closed car,” the Fixed Head Coupe, while not as popular as the Roadster at first, would become one of the best sellers of the XK line during this time. An optional Special Equipment Model was available as well and gave buyers a powerful B-Type cylinder head and twin SU carburetors for more than 210hp. This was a great model-year for Jaguar and many classic car collectors and British car enthusiasts look for the XK150.
1957 Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe Seller’s Guide
When selling a 1957 Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe, one of the best ways to increase the value is to have some of the additional options that were available on the car such as wire wheels, windscreen washers, sunroof, or the upgraded engine. Also of importance in setting a price for your classic Jaguar is the condition of the car, including any rust damage, and the originality of the car. Buyers are generally looking for the best XK150 FHC they can purchase within their budget. If you have a car that has original interior or paint, has undergone a complete restoration or has been sitting in a barn untouched for decades, these are things your potential buyers will want to know. Furthermore, if you can back up these claims with documentation of repair or restoration history, ownership history and any other details that would make the unique, you’ll certainly add value to your classic. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team provides to their clients and are happy to share with you.
