Calling All Ochre Blazers

I am completely redoing the interior of my Blazer and I want to get an idea of what the original carpet color should be for my Ochre Blazer. I have all parchment seats, door panels, cargo panels, visors, etc., which I know is original from the SPID. The original steering wheel, dash pad, and steering column are fawn/sandlewood. But the steering wheel and dash pad are way beyond repair and nobody makes these colors anymore. So I was going to go for the dark saddle steering wheel and dash pad. Is dark saddle the correct carpet color, or was there a fawn/sandlewood carpet in these Blazers. Thanks in advance.

BTW - post some pictures of your original/semi original Ochre Blazer interiors.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

I can't 100% answer your question, but it looks like a saddle carpet. You've probably seen his thread before, but here is 72Levi's thread. GREAT interior pics. He says that he got his carpet from stockinteriors.com. If you decide to stay with the parchment, I have a sandalwood colored repro steering wheel with an nos horn cap that I don't think I'll be using. Can't help with the dash pad though.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

I was honor-bound to answer the call, but I can't help. My response would be, "Carpet? What's that?"

The original was probably a saddle or tan, because that's the color of my door panels and the dash.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

Dash pad, steering wheel and carpet are all original. If you find the material for the dash pad in the correct color be sure to post the link to where you found it. Great looking truck! Good luck

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

Jimmyballpeen - Thanks for the pictures. That is one nice ride. So it looks like your Blazer came with the saddle colored upholstery, steering wheel, dash pad, door panels, carpet, etc. My Blazer rolled off the line with parchment seats, door panels, etc, and sandalwood steering wheel and dashpad. I am having a hard time finding out what color the carpet should be for this combo. I'm thinking it should be sandalwood or fawn, but I have yet to see an orginal example of this combo.

Craig- I don't know if this will help you or not, but here are a couple of pics of the carpet that was in my '71. It came with the parchment interior also.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

Ray - That is exactly the verification I was looking for. So its dark sandalwood carpet. I have a place that can produce that color.

Did you get my PM about the steering wheel? Let me know if that is a fair offer or not. Thanks.

Steering wheel pics. You can see what I was talking about in the grain on the center part of the wheel.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

Ray - I see what you are talking about on the grain. I would bet that it is due to the ability to get what ever chemical prep down into the grain before dying. The chemical didn't make it into the grain, so the dye didn't adhere. However, it looks great on all the flat portions.

This isn't a deal breaker, but I already have a nice black wheel and horn button and I want to see what it would cost me to have mine dyed locally to avoid the issue with the grain. Give me a day or two to do some research and I will either pull the trigger or cut bait on this one.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

Mine started life with a saddle interior according to the SPID but somehow ended up with parchment, go figure. One of my pictures shows a glimpse of what appears to be the original sandalwood carpet behind the passenger seat. I like that color combination and it goes well with the non-factory (but cool) fabric seat inserts.

I have a tilt steering column so the wheel and column in my Jimmy are black which I believe was the correct color combo for tilt. My dash pad was missing but I am going with black there also.

Re: Calling All Ochre Blazers

Its strange to see threads you started years ago pop back up. I did eventually get my parchment and sandalwood interior completed in my Blazer for what its worth!
