Houndstooth in a 68 convertible?
« on: August 03, 2009, 10:13:18 PM »
CRG and my White Book clearly state that houndstooth was not available in a 1969 convertible, except for pace cars.
There is no mention of availability or restrictions in a 1968 convertible. Could this tag be real?

That tag is from a car claimed to be a special production 68 equipped with a D88 multicolor bumblebee stripe.  The car is full of 69 parts and always has been as long as it has been known, which is over 10 years.  It does not have any documentation to prove exactly what it is, or who it was made for.  Its on Ebay right now.

Let me simplify my question, regardless of the car on Ebay.

Could anyone have ordered Houndstooth interior in a 1968 Convertible?

I see no information on CRG that says you could not.

(2) Carpet, Instrument Panel, and Steering Wheel are Black.
    730 Parchment was early and was a different color from
    the Ivory. 711/716 were late and used the same Ivory color.

No, no houndstooth in convertibles in either 68 or 69 except the 69 Pacecars.

Is that written anywhere on CRG?

If not, maybe you should add it.
