It looks my L78 coupe. Makes me feel good about values. I think the car is too late for the SS wheels but Jerry,s papers show it is a real car.

Comfort Weave would be wrong if someone is fussy

Yes, Houndstooth was not available in a convertible unless it was a pace car replica.

Have you read the report, or are you making that real statement based on a picture of the parchment paper?

Comfort Weave would be wrong if someone is fussy

With a 'custom interior' in black in a convertible (not a pace car), would not the comfort weave have been the originally factory installed interior in this car????   so actually the 'houndstooth is 'wrong'... and comfort weave is 'right'..  in terms of originality!

PS.  typically through Chevy/GM history, convertibles have NOT been available wtih cloth interiors, probably due to the exposure to weather (sun/rain/etc)...

Yes, interior should be Black Deluxe Comfort Weave with its 712 Code. I have a Black RS/SS convertible with the same situation. 712 interior but previous owner installed a black and white houndstooth. It looks awesome so I am not going to change it.

Here's a couple of pics of mine.
Sometimes going against what was original looks much better!
