Some times I did not posted on my post...

Looking at some different discussion topics on getting bulkhead mats reproduced, I need help on confirming the color of the mats that should go into my car?

If someone could help me to answer this?

As reference my lowlight is from July 1959.

Thanks in advance for help.


Just making sure if someone could help me answer my question above (in bold).


Best,

Jerome.


Hello Jerome,

From my September 1957 Brilliant Red Coupe, which was stored indoors its entire life (not faded by the sun) and kept completely original, yes, the correct color is "beige". What is "beige?" Look at this thread:

Nice survivor, indeed... Surprised
A cloaking case for Optima may give a better appearance.
