    Almost looks like a fire chief's rig.

    Odd that I sold one that looked just like it to a group in Ohio a few years ago. Sure makes me wonder if it is the same one that got run thru the history laundry after a freshening up. No power steering killed any desire for me to keep it.

    In the days when an interior could match an exterior, like the '77 Granada I once had (dark green with dark green interior, I love that color combo), but sometimes, the color shades chosen suck, like any GM (dark olive green with light olive green interior, that one sucks).

    Had a black 58 Continental rag top that had a red, black and white leather interior. Looked kinda' odd. Still have a couple 93/94 Town Cars that came with blue and white leather mix on the blue car and green and white mix on the golf tournament green car. They look ok inside but I agree that GM did some hideous color matches especially in the late 70's and early 80's cars. Still have a few 96 Buick Roadhog wagons and they could look nice with a tan interior but their blue interiors looked faded even when new. The Buick wagons with a Bordelo red interior are kinda' spiffy though. Of all the cars, the big Mercurys of that era had the best interior color matches to the paint in my opinion.
