Jaguar paint and interior colors - The large sedans
Note

No two reference books completely agree on which colors various models were finished in, and during which time period.  We've done our best to compile the available information into a useful reference format.  The situation is further complicated by Jaguar's policy of making non-standard interior and exterior color combinations available at extra cost for most if not all models.  We welcome your feedback on this page if you have definitive information about this subject!

Want to see some of these colors?  If so follow this link to the superb site of Roger Los. He has provided a visualization of various color combinations for the Series 1 E -Type. Many of these colors are the same as the  sedans featured on this page. (our thanks to Roger for permission to use this link)

Custom Paint (including two tone finishes) and interior colors were available from the factory at extra cost
officially produced from October 1950 to September 1954 (after which the MK VII became the MK VIIM and continued in production until July 1957)
