Re: '81 RA40 Liftback in NSW
Yeah, it's not strictly speaking 'correct' for the car, as the blue interior trim indicates it should have blue carpets and blue 'corduroy-type' striped fabric seats.
My guess is the PO couldn't find the correct colour blue from the aftermarket suppliers, so went with black, and then had the seats done to match the carpet, with a hint of blue picking up the trim colour.
It actually does look quite smart. So much so I'm contemplating getting a new black carpet for the boot (currently not properly carpeted).
But if I can find the missing blue trim pieces for the boot section, I may just renew the boot carpet in blue and to hell with the floor and boot not 'matching'. Although I have the cargo blind and its side trim pieces, I'm missing the luggage strap for the floor, so if anyone has one or knows of one....
