68 GT-500 KR convertible questions
« on: May 19, 2010, 12:22:32 AM »
I have a few questions about the details of a 68 GT-500 KR convertible which was brought in to the shop I work at. The car has the saddle interior. Is the carpet supposed to be black? Are the visors and dash pad supposed to be saddle? And, finally, the car has the rear bumperettes which are body color on the sides. Is that correct? Thanks.

Carpet should be dark brown but I have seen a saddle interior car that had a black carpet that I believe was OEM. Dashpad is dark saddle, dash face light saddle and seat belts black. Rear bumperettes should be body color.

 That's what I always thought, but, the owner of the car talked to someone that gave him some questionable information. Sometimes it seems like I'm more interested in getting it right than the owners of the cars are. Thanks again, that really helps.
