The Jaguar Regency Red is of the era and has no metal flake in it.
If you can find a picture of an XKE in an old magazine in a dark red
(maroon) , that would be Regency Red.
I used maroon and tan on my MGA which I fussed over forever. Finally
decided on the paint color. I try to ignore the metal flake when the sun
hits it now. It looks the nicest in the evening when the sun is low.
I wanted to use the Regency Red but at the time single stage paint was all I
could find in that color and my painter was much more knowledgeable on
Base/clear coats and I couldn't beat his price. So the metallic maroon
was picked. Looks nice but better if it was Reg. Red.
I used Moss tan leather seats and am very happy with the choice.
