What's the best way to sell my 1959 Jaguar XK150?

I have a Jaguar XK150 which has been in the family since 1968. It's still in original condition, but not mint. How would you suggest I sell it?

There are a few options open to you. To maximise your sale price, you should sell it privately via a classified advert - these can be placed in a variety of classic car magazines and newspapers. Some are free and some will charge, and you'll be at the mercy of print schedules as to when the advert appears. You can also list your car for sale online, which will get the selling process started straight away. If you do choose to sell privately, make sure you place the car in specialist Jaguar titles too. If you can't face the hassle of answering phone calls and emails, then the alternative is to either place it with a dealer or sell it via auction. Both will take a cut - either as a percentage of the final sale price or a fee.

Comfortable, fast, excellent road manners, and styling that continues to age well. As with all Jaguars, great specialist and club back-up.
