Thanks for the VIN - we will add it if we donít already have it.

Did it look like the seat was mostly yellow with a blake stripe or was the center part of the seat more white/off white?

This is from a description from CRG

 (3) An alternate yellow/black custom interior offered late in the
 model year. No original examples found to date. Most lower interior
 parts were black instead of 707 yellow/gold including: carpet, seat
 backs, kick panels, etc.

So is this saying only seats, door panels & decor panels were the only things that were yellow? Maybe how they did it in 1969?...Joe

We just updated that in the past few days.

This is believed to be an original 707 interior but the thread is for 706.

707 had a brown insert stripe.

706 is black.

706 is black.



Curious if the car were a different exterior color (these examples all appear to be BY), would the interior door and extension below the quarter window still be painted yellow? I'm surprised they are not gold with 707 and black with 706. Not sure if that would help or hurt the combo any.

Itís my belief that ďonlyĒ the yellow interior cars had the door tops painted a different color than the dash color was painted...and the interior paint trim color used on the trim tag designated the color of the door tops not the dash color.

The general jist is the 707 was yellow and gold. 706 was yellow and black. But no announcements to be found about the new 706 color and 707 continued to be produced.

I wordsmithed the verbage a bit: 
(3) Alternate yellow/black custom interior offered late in the model
 year. Most 706 lower interior parts were black instead of the gold
 in a 707 interior: carpet, lower doors, kick panels, dash, etc.

Yup, it is only noted in the parts manual. We haven't seen it any bulletins, etc.
