What's original on my 72?


Recommended Posts

Below are pics of my door panel and my center console. My console doesn't have a lid or hinged top to it. Is it supposed to have one or is the way I pulled it out of the car correct? Also, my white door panel has a blue paint on the chrome trim strip at the top. Portions of the blue are worn off, so I don't know if it's supposed to be chrome and someone painted it blue or if it's supposed to be blue. I'm not shooting for a concours restoration that is exactly correct, however I would like to keep it as original as it makes sense. Of course usability and cost concerns will also drive how the car is restored. I appreciate your help!!

If it weren't for the cost of shipping to and from me, I would offer a Chrome Strip Restoration service.

I've done a few of these and the results are good enough to show, unfortunately, the cost of shipping your panels to and from me is what makes it unpalateable.
