That colour was not used on the MK-VIII but the Mk-VII, was this car painted for the movie or was the movie colourised?

The director of "Vertigo", Alfred Hitchcock, used much green when associating with the female character who drove this car (sometimes green clothes, green lighting etc). The film was shot in Technicolor so Hitchcock probably had this car re-sprayed in a shade of green that photographed well, and was to his liking.

Hi to all, just joined after re watching Vertigo.... Also curious about this green but believe it is Metallic Almond Green used on a few British cars during the early 1950s. Think the exact colour was used on the Riley rm models as well as some MGs. For those wanting to compare the colour check some of the Riley car sites... but I believe it is Metaliic Almond Green instead of plain Almond Green.

Later in the film, the characters are driving somewhere, but the car looks different; specifically, the grill appears to have a stylised letter "J" in it, which couldn't be seen earlier. Is this a different model, or was the "J" just not visible earlier?

No Jaguar of this era had such a thing as it emerged from the factory, probably just a trick of the light.
