Well, I tore apart the interior and brought it to a reputable upholsterer and his opinion is that it was done post factory. I also tore the black carpet out and just this morning found a nickle sized piece of gold carpet.
Guess that says it all. Not original. I'm planning to put it back to original, which is Ivy Gold interior.
Also - the top is convertible black now, but the cowl tag says it should be white. I've been thinking of going back to the white top as well, thinking there's several Ash Gold with black tops around but none with white.
This would bring it back to original - and add a touch of class. Won't look very masculine, but hey - it's a survivor!
