The exterior is finished in Jaguar’s seldom seen Ascot Fawn (colour code JA034) and would appear to be an acquired taste, to some. The Jury is clearly out when it comes to public opinion when reviewing the Social Media comments. It was only ever paired with either red, beige or, in this case, a Cinnamon coloured interior. It’s been resprayed in some areas (mainly at the front) at some stage but, on a paint tester it’s still very thin so it’s clearly been done some considerable time ago. No filler is evident – at all. The roof, rear door and most of the rear wings are actually still the original factory paint, so all in all, the car still looks in remarkable condition. Importantly, both sills have been replaced! A couple of small areas of paint deterioration are starting to show in the sensitive door edgings and boot, but nothing that couldn’t be spot repaired and will be reviewed before selling. All chrome and bright-work are in super condition and need zero attention. A new windscreen has been fitted at some stage with some restoration work done at the sensitive bulkhead area too. As emphasised, the colour is an acquired taste but it will appeal to some and is certainly different from the marques ubiquitous red.
