The original interior was General Motors Ox Grey and Charcoal. I have stayed pretty much to code on all of the fabric items. The revision has included replacement door and side sail panels, new dash cap, headliner, and visors. A window regulator, bushings in the steering column, and trunk and hood lift supports were also replaced.
