My 53 coupe came Black (501 Schwarz) with Reddish/Brown ? (Cords./K' Leder) per Kardex.

Trying to figure out the original dash, garnish's color. What do you guys think ?

Tried to feather edge the grayish and black color more but was unable, seems it is very thin.

Read the thread on the Radium Green post.

Appears it may be Maroon by the chart James posted.

From the factory it is the maroon over the black layer. If it has yellow on the body also, see if the car was in the DC area. I might have some history on it.

Not sure where it came from prior to 1995 when I bought it in So Cal. It does have several sticker residue spots from plaque's on the dash.
