New Zealand Classic Car
'This is the revised third edition of a book originally written by Jaguar enthusiast and expert Philip Porter in 1988. The level of detail and amount of research that has gone into this book is remarkable. Porter, together with Individual XK owners and specialists such as J.D Classics, has gone to great lengths to supplement the informative text with excellent and detailed photographs of restored and barn-find XKs that show how they would have left the factory in terms of interior fittings, hoods, exhaust systems, suspension, etc.
'After a quick explanation of the different XK models – from XK120 to XK150 – the book is neatly divided by model and even includes sections on factory documentation and optional extras such as Continental Touring Kits and fitted suitcases.
'If you are an XK owner, or a restorer or potential purchaser, this superb book will provide an absolute treasure trove of information and encouragement.' Mark Holman
