Selling a 1960 Jaguar XK150 Roadster
Though the XK150 was not the longest running generation of the Jaguar XK lineup, it would prove to be the most profitable, accounting for more than 52 percent of Jaguar’s sales during its run. Interestingly, while the Roadster body style had been the most popular for the XK120 and XK140 models, the Fixed Head Coupe and Drop Head Coupe actually saw more sales during this time. In fact, a 1960 Jaguar XK150 Roadster can be quite difficult to find, as the Roadster made up just 13 percent of sales for the XK150. If you’re the owner of a 1960 Jaguar XK150 Roadster or have recently come across a barn-find or abandoned project, there are plenty of buyers out there looking for your model. Designed with you in mind, the Alex Manos team has created this website to be a resource for sellers like you; to learn more about the XK150 and the Seller’s Tips needed for a successful sale.
1960 Jaguar XK150 Roadster Seller’s Tips
First, it is important to note that engine options changed for the 1960 Jaguar XK150 Roadster. A new 3.8L engine that gave owners 220hp in standard tune or 265hp in the “S” model, would give a top speed of more than 135mph. Only 2,265 Roadsters would be completed using this configuration. If your model features the original 3.8L engine or the engine has been rebuilt trough a restoration process, be sure to advertise this to buyers to make your Roadster stand out from the crowd. You’ll also need to decide where you’ll advertise your Roadster. Will you take out an advertisement in a classic car magazine? In the local newspaper? Will you post your car online? How will you reach buyers? Secondly, you need to ensure you have the time and energy it takes to answer questions, return phone calls, coordinate showings and inspections, and more. If this sounds like a full-time job, it can be. The Alex Manos team reminds you of this because sometimes it’s better to consign your classic or allow a California classic car dealership like the Alex Manos team to purchase it outright. Renowned for offering top-dollar in cash, their team would be delighted to learn more about your 1960 XK150 Roadster.
