Interesting. It’s quite an usual car there.
HFB- British Racing Green. Standard colour.
ANT- Light Doeskin. Usually found on the half leather/ half cloth seats.
But what’s unusual, is the Seat design/ Birds eye maple veneers are usually only found on the “Sport models”.
Yours is not Sport model though.
Like the Mulberry Carpets tend to be found on Sport/ XJR models. So either the Japanese brochure options were different, or the first owner payed extra for special order combination.
Or! With yours being such a late car, the factory was using up the odd parts it had left and offering odd selections!
Either way, you have an unusual car there.
The wheels are normally on Sovereign spec too, but could have easily been ordered.

Do you have sun roof and air con?
