Registered on August 31st 1960, and originally supplied to celebrated Composer and Conductor: Anthony Hokpins CBE, this is an excellent, restored, example of the rare and highly prized XK150 ‘S’ 3.8 Drophead Coupe, of which only 69 examples were manufactured in Right Hand Drive form.
In addition to its 3.8 Litre engine, with correct Triple SU Carburettors, the cylinder head has been fully stripped, ported and rebuilt by WinSpeed to fast-road, WSM-2 specification.
The car is now installed with a T5 5-Speed Gearbox and also benefits from a 6-branch exhaust manifold. It sits on 16” Chrome Wire Wheels shod with new Blockley Radial tyres.
Finished in British Racing Green with Suede Green trim, it possesses a good history file, complete with Green Log Book, numerous MOTs since 1970 and considerable correspondence and bills. It is absolutely ready for the 2014 Classic XK Motoring Season.
Another excellent example of a rare and collectible XK from WinSpeed Motorsport of Guildford.
