Selling a 1959 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe
Towards the end of the 1950s, rivals such as Mercedes-Benz and Austin-Healey were changing the luxury sports car market by offering the comfort and refinement that the American market demanded. Jaguar’s response to rivals was the XK150, the third and final variation on the original Jaguar XK120 that first launched in 1948. More than a decade had passed, and the new XK150 offered buyers what many considered to be the best refinements and advancements of the brand at the time. While the Roadster had always been the most popular, growing in popularity was the Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe, a true convertible. If you’re the owner of a 1959 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe (or any model-year DHC), you know that this convertible top was far more advanced than the simple canvas cover you received with the Roadster. Padded and lined, the new convertible top gave drivers more protection from the elements and made longer drives, particularly at night, more comfortable for both driver and passenger.
