    To the best of my knowledge there was never a E body with mixed color interior, so I would venture a guess that the original color was everything red. I know a fair share of cars were converted to black because people either did not like the other colored interior, or could not find the color panels that they needed. Fortunately, most all the interior pieces are available in the various color options now.

    White and red is a possibility. What's your fender tag call out for the color? EW would be the code for White and red.

    What color is your dash? Got any pictures of what's there?

    This Cuda belongs to Ola Nilsson (Cudaized). It is a factory correct red interior car. The steering column is red because it has a Rallye dash . The standard dash will have a black steering column. 397655_2730445357746_3719113_n.jpg

    This is an original '70 Challenger convert, right after it was pulled from a barn. It has the standard dash with a red column. It may be possible that the standard dash came black with the column shift and the console shift ones had the matching color column.

    I imagine you've already done some snooping at larger outlets such as Year-One or Layson's. You'd also need rear 'package tray' and roof liner. There may be listings for all the parts you need - but not in the color you want.

    I got some special paint for plastic mixed up at an automotive paint store, I took some new metro door panels for them to use to match the colour (they have an electronic scan to get the colour just right) and they mixed it up and even put the thinners in so it was ready to go in the spray gun pot. You will get a better result with a proper spray gun then a rattle can 17 fl oz was about $20 and that is plenty to do a whole interior.
