My car came from the West Coast of the USA, was manufactured in 1969 and re-imported to the UK in 2014. It belonged to a doctor called David Tinker for many years when it was in the USA and has done 73,000 miles.
I was determined to buy one that didn’t need floors and rockers. I was lucky-mine is solid.
It was up and together when I got it but I replaced every moving part and consumable and sooped up the motor somewhat. Although it came with triple SUs, I have had it on throttle bodies for a couple of years now and it flies down the road. It has a 2.88 rear. The 3.51 diff was a bit fussy to say the least with a 4 speed box at 90 mph. I also converted it to RHD.
The color is Jaguar Opalescent Silver Grey for which there are 2 shades, light and dark. Mine is the light shade.
My local car paint guys matched the color perfectly in an Aerosol for touching up. Confusingly the Jaguar color is the same color an Aston Martin color -Silver Birch - Code 44938.
It is a 2 part system with base coat and lacquer. I have just never put any lacquer on, so my car has a somewhat worn “vinyl” appearance. It has been like that for a few years now.
Here I am overtaking an ambulance!
