[Saloon-lovers] '62 Mk10 - Curious color combo

Hi Listers,
I got my certificate from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, and was
surprised to find that the original car had a black exterior and a black
interior. From what I’ve been able to find out by searching the web, that
color combination was not offered by Jaguar. I rechecked with JDHT, and
they assure me that the car was built black/black- Julie Simpson at JDHT
speculated that it must have been a special order.
My questions:

  1. If this was indeed a special order, would that increase the value of the
    car? How much? :slight_smile:
  2. The car now has a black exterior and a red interior (very clean) - would
    it be worth it to restore it to the original black interior?
    I’m going to post a few photos of the car at the jag-lovers web site over
    the weekend, in case anyone’s interested…
    Cheers,
    Allan Kirson

What a pity the original interior is no more. I think it makes no sense to
try to “reconstruct” it now afterward. Take the color you like - A Mk10
isn’t a Jaguar- or OldEnglishCars-collector’s pride anyway, but something
for Mk10-lovers (It’s the same shame with these underrated S-Types…). It
was your choice - It’s yours now - enjoy it not as a
money-encreasing-machine! Greetings from Switzerland & sorry for my bad
english!

Allan,

I don’t think it would make much difference. For concours purposes, the JCNA
doesn’t care what color it is, as long as it was something that could have
come from the factory or it was a special order. So originality doesn’t
count for much unless… unless, you can trace the lineage back to the
original owner. If that someone was “special” enough to order a special
combination, they might be a recognizable name. In that case, returning it
to the condition that it left the factory and which they used it would be of
value.
