1959 Jaguar XK150 3.4-Litre 'Foxbat' Sports Estate

The 'sports estate' concept is not new; there had been several such bespoke creations on quality chassis before WW2. Harold Radford's dozen-or-so shooting brake conversions of the Aston Martin DB5 are among the most familiar in the post-war era. One of only two made, and believed the sole survivor, the example offered here resided in France for many years before coming to the UK in 2008 since it has been carefully stored. The creator of the Foxbat, though, remains unknown. It is believed that the car, which incorporates Morris Minor Traveller panels, was created to serve as a motorsports support vehicle.
