Looking up interior colors it appears that I may have a 82 interior. 80 seemed to have a bright red and this one is maroon???

In 1980 they list:

Black
Oyster
Red
Dark Blue
Claret
Doeskin

I think the "Claret" is what you have..........I might be wrong, if so.....
someone chime in and correct me.

What are the Numbers on the trim tag inside the drivers door jam left of dash?
It might say here........it does on an '81.

Red Leather.........722
Claret Cloth.........79C
Claret Leather......792

Forgot about the trim plate :lookinup:

Looks like claret which is an 80 colour.
code;
79C=cloth
792=leather

I can see hints of that under the flaking off paint, who ever did the repaint do a bad job on prep...and they painted over the T-top trim..I'm going to have fun getting them off.

Yes that is claret. I have original 1980 interior as well as original paint, both claret. very nice color combo, extra classy. If you do decide to to start a resto I would recomend going with the original claret combo to match your trim plate. :thumbsup:
