I found this at www.studebaker-info.org This is a 1952 truck color chart (I did not find a '51 truck color chart), but color names with an asterick were shared with 1951. I can't say for sure, but I think all of the interior paint matches that of the exterior. Can somebody confirm this? Also, you may be able to remove a piece of trim and find good original paint underneath.

OK, so the interior should be painted the same color as the exterior, midnight blue in this case and then install tan/ cream inserts and trim?
