67 trim code 7U seat belt color......
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:06:02 AM »
When I pulled the belts from my wifes car they seem kinda dark to me for being Parchment and am wondering if they should be darker or lighter ?

2 or 3 but I'd hate to tell you incorrectly. Hard to tell true colors on screens

These scans are from "How To Restore Your Mustang" by Larry Dobbs and Donald Farr (1989) with more colors to dazzle your day. Seatbelts are shown as being colored the same as carpeting, and for code 7U as "Dark Parchment Irid - R/M number 5796". Choose wisely.

Well, the carpeting used with the Parchment interiors was black, and we know the seat belts definitely weren't black on the Parchment cars - so there goes that theory...

Brian, you might want to try contacting Bob Perkins at Perkins Restoration, as his 10,500 mile, unrestored '67 Convertible just happens to have a Deluxe Parchment interior.  It's hard to tell from the few photos I've seen of the interior of his car, but the seat belts look to be closer to the number 4 color option that Ssnake-Oyl offered you...

Good Luck!

So basically, we are saying here that the "carpeting should match the drapes"to be genuine or authentic?  :o ::) ;D ???

On a bit more serious note, I wish to add that the parchment 67's DID NOT in my opinion, come with black carpeting", I believe original examples were more beige in color.

Hi Richard - I respectfully have to disagree with you...

Please look at the two images below of Bob Perkins' unrestored '67 Convertible.
The carpet in his car looks pretty black to me...

In addition - my own '67 Convertible came with the 6U Deluxe Parchment interior, and it had black carpet in it as well.  Unfortunately, the original carpet was waterlogged and pretty moldy when I bought the car, so it was tossed-out over 34 years ago.  However, I still have some of the jute backing that was attached to the underside of the carpet, and the carpet label clearly says "BLACK" on it (see the 3rd photo)...

Cheers!

OK! ok! so the carpet doesn't match the drapes (on 67's with 'blonde drapes')  :P

I thought I had seen a few 67's that had beige carpets so I could then only assume those had been modified...that or my memory is shot! Perhaps it was the seat belts I am thinking were beige and the carpet was black. You don't find this color often enough 'unrestored' so I stand corrected. Thanks for the 'humble pie" but really, it tastes more like 'crow"  :o
