I don't want to lead you astray with a very old memory on this, but I think that it was either black or red. I do know that a white vinyl interior came with a black carpet and dash.

Hopefully someone either has an original car with red vinyl or the proper place to look up the answer.

I appreciate the way that you take the time and effort to make your cars correct and well done.

Warren, is your Maroon Interior '66 Daytona Sport Sedan, Maroon on the dash and Carpet, closely matching the Seats and door Panels? [:0]

I seem to remember it was, but it has been a long time since I drove that car out of the showroom! [:0]

I remember the seats were darker than '64's, bordering on Burgundy, and very beautiful button pleated. [:p]

Maybe you can verify for Ray, thanks.
