And so the work begins. My first goal for the car is to put the interior back to stock. To accomplish this, I need to pull the biscuit leather interior out as well as the carpet and put in the original tan velour interior and chestnut colored carpet. I’ve tracked down very good condition original interior pieces which I will use for now. I’m currently in the process of seeing if I can have the velour fabric remanufactured and then I can have new seat covers and door panels made.
I’ve searched high and low to find original interior pieces. I’ve put in the original square speakers – I’ve color matched the golden tan color and sprayed up a set of arm rests to match. I’ve installed new sun visors which I picked up from Brad at Wedgeparts. The carpet is on it’s way as well as most of the rest of the interior panels. I am currently looking high and low for an 80MPH push button speedo to complement the interior restoration. If you know of one for sale, please contact me.
