|XK 150 is the third in the 'XK Explored' series. Like the others, this has the same astonishing detail and artwork which depicts every inch of the car through some 2,500+ perspective colour drawings of body, chassis, suspension, brakes, interior, instrumentation, wiring, engine etc components. Covers lefthand and righthand drive cars, and all models – fixedhead, drophead, open two-seater and 'S' variants.
This book is the result of nearly three years' research and work by the author Bernard Viart. Essential for owners/restorers, the 'Explored' books are favoured by the trade – they allow ordering parts to be much easier for all concerned, without a language barrier!
Superbly produced with hard boards and jacket, XK 150 Explored runs to 445 pages and along with 360 pages of Plates, the history of the car is covered not only by means of detailed text, but also by hundreds of period photographs.
