I was wondering if anybody might know what colors this interior might be. I'm pretty sure its not a stock color...or what would be a good color combination for the car?...

That looks like the stock two tone turquoise interior. That was pretty common. The dash doesn't look like the correct color though. You can tell the exact interior color by looking at the TRIM code on the data plate on the driver door pillar.

im hoping it is a stock color I really like how the color of the seats stand out from the exterior....I looked at at the plate and it says COLOR M.....TRIM 57...it was turquoise and white vinyl but I dont know why it would be turquoise and green unless someone painted it...or switched with a different trim...

There was no turquoise and white vinyl in 1960. Only two tone turquoise. Your interior is correct. Your car was originally Corinthian white.

John is correct. The car left the factory painted white with Trim Code 57, Dark Turquoise #17 & Lite Turquoise #18 in it. The pix shown here seems to be that color combination. Now the kick panels, for whatever reason, according to MAC's auto part catalog, are turquoise & white and not 2 tone turquoise. Look at Pages 171-180 in their catalog. The dark color on the door panels is not green, but dark turquoise.

I think the site where I looked it up made a mistake on the trim color....the color of the dash is the same color as the interior it just looks different because of the way the sun was hitting it....


here's the site where first looked

If that is the case, then if the dash matches either one of the interior dark turquoise/light turquoise, and that all matches the exterior paint color, it looks like you have a good match then with what you have!

Ray,

I think it's just a mistake in the listing. The kick panels matched the seats and door panels. Here they say two tone turquoise.

Concoursparts.com has the complete interior trim set all listed as code 57 Dark Turquoise & Lite Turquoise (Compare there prices with Mac's as well as the shipping charge).
