The 1959 Jaguar XK150 S 3.4 Open Top Sports model (60k-70k)
Converted from left to right-hand drive, recent work has seen it benefit from a "body-off, chassis-up" restoration.
A genuine 'S' model,with matching chassis and engine block numbers, it boasts a subtly enhanced specification.
This includes a five-speed manual gearbox, alternator conversion, an aluminium radiator-slash-Kenlowe fan, a concealed electronic ignition and uprated brakes.
The classic Jaguar will sell with an estimate of 60,000-70,000.
