    My '53 Starliner had the sound deadening asphalt stuff sprayed over grey primer or bare metal depending on where it was. Then, there was a "mist" coat of body color overspray on top of that.

    My '53 Starlight had undercoat sprayed on bare metal and body color on top of it when I was tearing it down for restoration.

    The correct color is "rust" LOl use an etching primer on it, and a good couple coats of color. as primer is NOT water proof!

    I have found that pale yellow in panels in my 55K which was satin black from the factory. Mentioned it before and people thought I was daft. Saw the pale yellow on many early c/ks. So it's primer? I wondered where all the pale yellow Studes had gone (lol).

    Removed the seats from my '57GoldenHawk this weekend and cleaned 30 years of debris and dirt from the floor; the entire floor is a pale yellow color, assume it is a primer coat. Body color is the traditional Tiara Gold, so definitely NOT body color.....

    My '51 and '53 appeared to be primed and overshot with sound deadening glop. The '60 and '63 were body color with no glop. The '33 seams to be bare plywood.

    Likewise with my '55 President. Same colour as outside.

    On the Larks that I have had they have all been body color (same as the exterior). I can not say for the older cars/trucks.

    What factory finish was applied to the interior surfaces of floor panels? Primer-paint-other? If painted, were they the same color as the body's exterior?

    Thanks,
Working...
