That will look fabulous, I think. Always nice to have something unique.

I'd stick with blue per the Kardex. It's a navy blue vinyl with dark blue carpet. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the looks of it. Sure beats the 90% black interiors already out there.

Thanks for your reply. You have me thinking...... I have been researching, For the 63 B I understand that it was grey or black interior as standard. So If the car was originally a blue interior it would have been a special order. I guess that makes it a little more individual and interesting.
Your car colour combo of slate/blue sounds amazing. Are you able to post a photo? It would stand to reason that your blue interior may have been the same blue originally in my car......... that's if the Kardex did ring true. I see you are in Sydney...... I am just out of Melbourne (Geelong).
Love your Ferrari story too. Thanks.

Ashley,
I was looking at Lakewell interiors today. Your red interior looks stunning. Is that the leather or vinyl option? and is that the squareweave carpet by them also?

Cheers,
John

It's the full leather option and it's Lakewell's carpets. I was told they were the best, but I've no way of knowing if that's correct.

We also bought, from another German company, the proper horsehair liners for the seats and completely rebuilt them. Now they are very comfortable.

I'm biased because I love the little car. :D
