This original, UK-supplied, right-hand drive Fixed Head Coupe is finished in Sherwood Green with a Suede Green Interior.  Very sensibly modified over recent years with ‘touring ‘ in mind and completed to a superb level. This believed ‘matching numbers’ XK left the factory in 1959 as a 3.4 but has more recently had the capacity increased to 3.8 by Guy Broad at a cost of £12,500 and, at the same time, a 5-speed Cosworth MT75 gearbox was installed to further enhance the driving experience. Further upgrades include an alternator, Zeus 4-pot front brake callipers, MWS Chrome Wire Wheels with Blockley Radial Tyres, a full stainless steel sports exhaust, large capacity radiator with Kenlowe fan, Gaz Shocks, full wooden dashboard ( an original factory option), inertia reel seatbelts and with even more comfort in mind for those long-distance tours, the original front seats have been replaced with those from an MX-5, both beautifully trimmed to match the interior in Suede Green hide, the original seats will remain with the car, and a Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel, again the original will remain. It should also be noted that the rear differential has just been overhauled.

In outstanding condition throughout, this ‘classic’ XK has all the attributes that you would require in a vehicle of this age and quality and is now ready for home or continental tours/rallies or simply to enjoy as intended. A quick long-distance tourer, restored to a very high standard and ready for its next custodian to take the helm.
