Jaguar would stop production of the XK150, the last of the illustrious XK line, in October of 1960, with many of the cars being sold as 1961 model-years. The 1961 Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe is often regarded by collectors to be one of the best examples of the Jaguar XK150, as it encompasses all the developments in technology, styling and mechanics that happened to the XK line from 1948 to 1961. If youre thinking about buying a 1961 Jaguar XK150 FHC, one of the most desired and hard to find options is the Webasto sunroof, which are even harder to find in working order. XK150 models with the factory option overdrive, wire wheels and original color combinations are also favored and more valuable. As with all classic cars from this era, rust plays a very important role in the value of these cars. Prior to purchasing any XK150, be sure to have a third-party inspection to eliminate any concerns regarding rust in the frame. Rust in the body panels can be overcome, however replacing and restoring these panels can be quite costly.

Today, the cost of restoration can almost exceed the full price of a fully restored example.
