I'm working on a Chevelle Z16 and want to make it as close to accurate to the real car as I can. I want to paint the car Tuxedo Black but my question is what color interiors were available?

From the Z16 Registry website - http://www.z16chevel...16 Registry.htm

 

      12 confirmed black cars exist, 4 of those have a black vinyl top.

          5 with black interior:

                4 of those without vinyl top (5.41% of known cars)

                1 of those with vinyl top (triple black) (1.35% of known cars)

          5 with red interior:

                2 of those without vinyl top (2.70% of known cars)

                3 of those with vinyl top (4.05% of known cars)

          2 with white interior (none of those has a vinyl top) (2.70% of known cars)

I should add that Black, White, and Red interiors were the only colors available on Z16's, only Black vinyl tops, and only 3 exterior paint colors, Tuxedo Black, Regal Red, and Crocus Yellow.  There were other colors available on Chevelle and Malibu, but these were the only Z16 colors.

I was hoping red was an option because I thought that would look best. Thanks for the info!!
