Trouble is nobody bothered to ask me first. If they had I would have said:

PP-47 was a styling exercise by Jensen to demonstrate the modifications to the MKI body shell and new interior features of the upcoming MK1A. A couple of other features were trialled and abandoned. It is a pre-production MK1A vehicle. it is a claim too far describing it as a prototype MKII. That label belongs with AF-201 to AF-204, the MKI cars rebuilt by Jensen in 1965 to the initial (1st) factory mechanical specification for the MKII.

The true MKII pre-production Tigers are PP-1 to PP-6. All had Jensen build dates in February 1966
PP1- B382001322 LRX
PP2- B382001528 HRO
PP3- B382001394 LRX
PP4- B382001519 LRX
PP5- B382001527 HRO
PP6- B382001523 LRX
