Interior New Versus Restored

Here's my interior new in 1970, then restored in 2015. Not really something you can directly compare digital to 40 year old polaroid, but still... I like the original blue shades better but the flash is pretty bright in the restored photo, that's a lot of it. And the original photo is indoors or at night, I should try that.

Re: Interior New Versus Restored

I think this also serves to illustrate my old argument that even though the service information says to paint the console body color (in this case), it's not exactly so when new, and matched the seats a lot better than the body color does. My console matches the column and wheel, the original matched the seats better.

Re: Interior New Versus Restored

Very nice. Both pics look great, but I think I like the original slightly better. I'm surprised at how good that Polaroid looks lol. Is that a CB & 8-track in the original?
