Charcoal Gray/Silver Interior Pics

Howdy! I have a 1961 C20 and it currently has a charcoal gray/silver interior. I wasn't sure if this was original to the vehicle or not, but from what I have read it seems that the earlier years (60-63) came with that color combo in the interior?

Im inching closer to painting the interior and would like to see your charcoal gray/silver interiors! Especially from 60-63 years. I could not find a thread like this out there, so if it exists please direct me!

Here is mine below! I believe that the dash and cab are correct, the doors used to be silver but someone painted them white, and the steering wheel is fawn. Its a bit of a frankenstein truck. If you notice on the left it has a reassigned VIN from AZ. The trucks history is unknown to me beyond the last ten years.

Re: Charcoal Gray/Silver Interior Pics

Thanks, good to know.

I was initially thinking of going with fawn, but I'm not sure how it would look against an orange exterior. I am leaning with sticking with the gray/silver, and doing some kind of interesting color with the seat.

Not exactly factory, but I did it myself with "Smoke Grey". Hope it helps.

Re: Charcoal Gray/Silver Interior Pics

Thanks guys, anything helps. I am aiming to paint my interior myself as well, so it more than likely will not be the original color either.

SkinnyG - Its interesting to see your interior because it seems your doors are white as well... I figured that someone repainted mine white at one time or another but maybe thats the way they came? I thought they would have matched the silver. Interesting.

Re: Charcoal Gray/Silver Interior Pics

The doors are for sure silver/gray, not white. It may not be clear in the picture. Perhaps it's aged and lightened?

Theres NO white anywhere on a 60-61 interior. Silver doors. Your door panels are incorrect . Heres a 1961 original "custom" interior 100% original paint .


And a non custom all Silver door.



and a non Custom door all silver and all original.

Re: Charcoal Gray/Silver Interior Pics

Seemed white at first glance, my eyes must deceive me.

Great pics, I appreciate the help. Ill have to see if there is any silver under that white door paint. My dash must have been repainted because it has a hard corner where the dark gray meets the silver on the pillar instead of a rounded corner, and the silver on the glove box is painted over. I believe the silver is original to the cab though.

Off topic but does anyone know what the trim packages were like for the C20's? I found some holes on the side of my hood where an emblem of some kind would go that were filled with bondo. Could be a different hood, but I havent checked the rest of the truck for old trim holes.
