<VV> Late Model Color Question

Interior paint code is a single letter code...  it should be near the top 
right of the tag all by itself.  You will have to look up the letter to see 
what interior color it is...  E is Black.

On the left halfway down or more you should see the abbreviation TR followed 
by a (3digit?) code.  TR means trim and the code following it I believe will 
tell you upholstery color....  Black is 713 I believe.

Most cars had the same color paint (or close) as upholstery, but there were 
cars with Tu-Tone interiors...  one common one I believe was red paint with 
white upholstery.  Every Madeira Maroon car I have taken note of has had 
black on black interior... but that is not to say that all did.
