Re: 67-68 factory steering wheel colors

I'm curious about the black steering wheel. What color combination with that come on? I know the later 71/72s will sometimes have a black steering column in an otherwise colored interior. Same situation?

Panelman, i'm thinking your turquoise is the same as what GM consider is light green (?) your interior definitely looks the same as my 67 which has an interesting mix of a turquoise upper dash combined with light green lower dash, door panels, cab etc.

Re: 67-68 factory steering wheel colors

I believe the black steering columns on 71-72 was the tilt option.

Thanks That's kinda what I was thinking.
Stopped at the paint shop today with
ashtray armrest and visor in hand.
He said he would call his People Monday.
The only thing he had was 503 &
503 with a 533L beside it.

It's definitely not the light green, I'll check into it later. My truck is up on my lift with wife's car under it, and 5 inches of snow out and still going till tonight. I've seen the turquoise in 67-68 trucks before.

I have search the forum and web hi &low.
There is a lot of Real Old Threads that I got a few idea's
of what to type in my search.
Then I found (This) thread that's right on topic.
Last night I got to thinking the armrest on
a 67 are continued from the 66 model.
So maybe some of the 67 interior colors
are 66 paint colors?
I have a paint chip card on the way for
something to match side by side.
I will go back to the paint shop this week
and see if he can mix up 510 Turquoise, Met. Chip No.5T
In the picture below.
Here is a picture of the card I ordered.
Name:  Interior Paint Colors 2.jpg
Views: 161
Size:  94.0 KB
My paint # on SPID is 4505AA which is 505 green.
The original exterior paint is still under there.
I seen it when I pulled the windshield.
I 'm trying to match the interior paint
to test for my steering wheel repair
before I have the cab sand-blasted.

Bingo! '67 was the last year (few '68 exceptions, too) for GM's tradition of painted interior color rather than body color. Panelman's interior is a bit metallic like the Fawn, or at least is a "silverish" green. I see the wheels as turquoise as well.

My '67 K/10 Suburban had a total Fawn interior --black instument panel and glovebox -- white exterior.
My '68 C/10 Stepside is factory 516 Orange, with Fawn interior accents: steering column and wheel, Fawn edging on black instrument panel, Fawn steel door panels, Fawn vinyl sunvisors, seatbelts, dash pad, bench seat. Main interior color was 516 Orange, same as the outside.
[After MY 1966 ''Omaha'' got dropped from the 516 Orange description. Same color.]

Re: 67-68 factory steering wheel colors

...

And Fawn

But Iím not convinced about the turquoise or the black. Any documentation on those?

Also was there a dark green?
