Dash color in Deluxe interiors?
#1
Can't seem to find an answer to this one (unless the "GF" Mach 1/Sports Interior differed from the knitted Deluxe interiors available in Coupes, Convertibles, and Grandes), but:

My late-1972 Q-code has a Ginger Mach 1 Sports interior; original to the car. The dash is black:

This '71 Sportsroof - also Sports interior - on the Megasite is the same:

This '73 Sportsroof has a Ginger dash, again, Sports interior:

'72 Mach w/Ginger dash and Sports interior:

'73 Mach, same situation:

What gives? Which is correct?

-Kurt

P.S.: I'm not sure if it'd have a bearing, but the '72 was produced late enough to have a carpet with a '73 part number.

This: What color should the steel dashboard be painted, if factory?

Near as I can figure it, between these photos and Don's research, is that the dash in my '72 is a replacement.

Brown pad and brown top metal go together. The middle picture with the 72 w sports interior looks correct.

My 72 had a ginger interior and the metal dash was ginger. I am certain it had never been re-painted. Chuck

Both black dashes are standard interiors.
