Default What percentage of XK150s still around?




So this restored version got me wondering... What percentage of XK150s are still around, do you think? According to the post, this is one of 2,672 dropheads, and I'm curious as to how many remain. Given they were sports cars, I'm sure plenty wound up wrecked, just like anything fast, and rust probably took a lot too... What would be your back of the envelope guess?

There was an XK 140 that used to park at the coffee shop by my old work, and it looked like it was from another world... So cool

There won't be a huge number around, as the original production was not very large anyway. However there are enough if you add together XK120/140/150 survivors for the aftermarket to think it worthwhile supplying parts. The cars are now worth serious money, so this helps as so few now get scrapped.
