I have several deluxe interior cars and all have black grab bars. One car, ivory houndstooth, orange houndstooth and blue comfort weave. Quite honestly its not something I've spent time researching, although I have many pictures of unrestored cars that we have certified through Vintage Certification program. At this point I will only provide firsthand examples and then based on the data make a opinion. Below is a picture of my 24k mile survivor and my orig interior 37K mile black rs/z.
Thanks Steve great pictures of great cars. I am curious if there were exceptions to the rules as with other stuff we have dicouvered over time. I agree, I hold John's opinion in high regard as well.
