Selling a 1959 Jaguar XK150 Roadster
During the planning stages for the XK150, the third and final variation in the Jaguar XK lineup, the engineers at Jaguar wanted to respond to rivals like the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which offered the refinement and comfort that the American market was demanding at the time. Launched in 1958, the 1959 Jaguar XK150 Roadster (and other model years) would present a redesigned body that modernized the iconic styling and curvature that the XK had become known for. Inside the cabin, a leather wrapped dash replaced the walnut-veneered one and more cockpit space was achieved by moving the bulkhead nearly four inches. Losing some of its contours and gaining a wider grille, longer and wider hood, and a one-piece windshield, the new XK150 was a sight to be seen. Perhaps the most significant change was the addition of Dunlop disc brakes, which had been used in Jaguar’s racing cars of the day. Advancements such as these gave Jaguar a reputation for taking what it learned on the racetrack and applying it to their street legal cars; a reputation that would be beneficial in years to come.
