  • So the consensus is that someone swapped for B8/K8 Parchment (Light Beige) with Ivy Gold appointments front seats at some point in our cars life?

      B8/K8 is all vinyl, not cloth. Parchment is the color (light beige). There is no Parchment (light beige) with Ivy Gold cloth seats. Is the vinyl that's on your cloth seats beige or Ivy Gold. I can't tell by the picture.

      • It looks like the same green vinyl as the back seats

        • According to what's in the Automotive Milepost that color combo doesn't exist in cloth. I'll check the Ford parts book and see what that says.

          • The Ford parts book shows the same thing. The only thing close to what you have is parchment cloth(beige) w/parchment vinyl (beige). If the vinyl is ivy gold then those seats are certainly an oddity.

            • I will take a closer picture of the vinyl under the cloth and post up in the morning, but I'm confident it's green not beige, certainly a mystery so far

                • That's definitely Ivy Gold vinyl. The odd thing is that the cloth material in your seats doesn't look anything like the material in the Automotive Mileposts picture. If you click on it and enlarge it you will see a completely different pattern than what you have. I suspect that your front seats may have been reupholstered for some reason. Your trim code of 58 is Ivy Gold all vinyl.

                  • Quite often original Ford upholstery and carpeting has a part number painted or inked on the backside of the material. Other soft parts may have a Ford ID tag stitched in some place out of sight. Have to remove and inspect - it may have a Ford marking somewhere out of sight.

                    • Just came back from a tour around town ( hoping all the seals swell up and stop the tiny leaks ) and noticed the pad on the nose of the dash is beige, wondering if that's original now as well lol

                      • The flairbird dashes held up very well so there would be no reason to replace it. Most likely it's just sun faded.

                          In the British car world (my first cars - still drive and restore them) if you do not have any leaks it means only one thing........it's out of oil.



                          Glad to see your back on the road with new tires. My 10 year old radials went bad a few months back and developed huge knots in the tire. Take a look at this broken belt (not quite a bad as your tire problem though)


                          One other thing......(hope you don't mind the friendly advice)

                          Go buy a fire extinguisher to carry in the car - you never know when or if you might need it but if you don't have one all you can do is watch it go up in smoke. I was lucky and carried one otherwise it would have been much worse.

                          • We are getting two more tires 2moro so we will be on 4 new ones

                            The extinguisher is a good idea, but on the other hand it is insured for 8500$ lol
