[xk] XK 120 Body Paint

Hi guys,

I have a 52 XK 120 OTS

The original color is Birch Grey.
Is there a color code in Du Pont, Finish Masters or Pantone?

Can anyone provide the Pantone swatch number which is close or
similar to Birch Grey?

What are your thoughts about changing the color of the car from the
Original color? Any advice?

Much Appreciated,

John XK120–

My car is a 1953 XK 120 DHC Birch Grey.

I think the colour suits the XK cars very well. For my part I would
never change the colour on my car, because I like it and it is original.

Best regards

John,

Here is a link to all of the colors, for all models, plus there is
a link near the top of the page that will take you to a really cool
color matching system for exterior, interior combos for later
models, but some of the colors apply to the XK series. No matter
what color you choose, I highly recommend that you go to a
base/clear coat type application, be it heresy or not, lol. Rob

John, my wife’s 120 was also Birch Grey, but we are in the process
of painting it pastel blue with a two-tone blue interior.
The Birch Grey is a real nice color, nothing else quite like it
on the road, so knock yourself out trying to decide on what to
do…
