    I think "Vinyl Trim" is a typo, it should say Matching Vinyl Trim, which means Matching Inserts or Solid Blue, no White Center inserts.

    Are there no traces of Blue or Black Vinyl on any Door Panels, Seats, Console, Armrests or somewhere? If BV meant Black Vinyl, that would be it.

      Not on '64's Rich. They were all solid color.

        Thank you. I'm wanting to go with red. I've got a set of near mint original door panels and console for it. For sake of matching the seat fabric and carpet, was there a maroon or Rosemist as earlier models had, or was it just "red"?

          The interior that was in it is gone. It had been recovered in a blue that was clearly not original. Everything, even the panels and console. It was awful. The original black paint was under the white though. I imagine the black with blue was a striking combination when new.

                        Do you have a completion date in mind? Looks like you're doing real nice job there. Cheers, Junior

                              Good Job!
                              So the Sealer/Primer is Blue? What Color do you like that will go with the Maroon Interior?

                              If it was mine, I would be temped to do it in Moonlight Silver or Golden Sand.

                                Sealer is gray. Weird lighting I guess. I'm going back to the original color. Black.
                                Original interior was blue which sometimes I wish I had done.
