    Your reply would be nearly correct for 1953 models, but not for the subject 1954 models. For 1953 C/K models, most 1953s had the interior metal painted Loma Gray except on Bombay Red with Flax interior that used Monterey Beige metal trim. For 1954 C/K models, the dash, etc. could be painted Mauve Tan, Amazon Green, Aero Gray or Aura Blue depending on the exterior color with the exception that vinyl or leather interior got Mauve Tan. If the subject car was originally Safford Cream then the dash, etc. should be painted Mauve Tan. This all applies to US built cars. I have no idea what was done to cars assembled in Belgium.
