  5. Outstanding interior, and yep, that retractable ashtray/armrest is the cat's whiskers.

    Except now I have the Beatles in my head, thanks.

    That is about as perfect as it gets. I have a real interior fetish and that one sure does the trick. BEAUTIFUL!!! Any pics of the rest of the car?

    Wow, that does look dead on and tasteful, hard to find work like that. Too bad he is retired, but glad to see he'll still do a sweet job for an old pal we can enjoy looking at. Very nice.

    I wish everyone was dead on and took such great pride in their work. So many people think they take pride, but don't. It's a shame.

    They had beautiful interiors from the factory didn't they? The lend real well to rolls.
    I just love the console in th back seat. It gives you the feeling of buckets in th back. Although they were not a good car for sleeping :)D) back there because of it.

    That is one beautiful set of hydes.

    That looks great. Wish we saw craftsmanship like that more often instead of Mexican blankets over a wornout bench seat.
