XK150 Traveller

This is for sale.

The ultimate 'cut and shut'? Perhaps, but I'm not sure and I don't think I'm going to risk £44.995 to see if it grows on me.

The video from last month shows it as HSL 659, ....
this advert from 2011 meanwhile says that it was currently French Registered, but formerly 558 NOT

Agreed. I didn't see that just from the photo I posted.

Another problem. Which owners club do you join? :D

I wonder if the driver of the Traveller survived the impact. :o

I am not a fan of it, I am guessing that price is kind of expensive.

No. That is even worse.
I can see SOME appeal in the XK Traveller. We must remember that when it was converted, an old Jag was worth very little.
A decent XK150 is about £100,000 now, so that one is relatively cheap in some ways :wink:

If you sort of squint a bit, it looks a little like a Porsche 356 !
