Carrera GT Interior

#1 Post by Thomas Laubscher » Sat Nov 25, 2017 9:43 am

Hi

I own a 58 Carrera GT Coupe which has unfortunately no (or not much) original interior left.

Now I'm restoring the car and try to do it as original as possible. For this reason I'm looking for pictures about the interior especially the carpet parts in the back and the vinyl parts like the sill of the car. The interior color is black.

Would be very friendly if I could get some help here.

Does someone know where's the best place to get the right material?

Thanks a lot.

Thomas

Can we see a picture of the exterior? 4 Cam?

Thanks

For sure. But it doesn't look nice at the moment....

Currently is a SC engine in use. Originally it should be a 1500 692/0.

At the moment I'm working on a Carrera 2 engine which I'm going to put in next year, hopefully.

I believe John Willhoit has the perfect Schwarzplast lightweight vinyl that goes in that car. He has a Carrera GT and could probably help you.
