    Thanks, Smartin... Of course the int is not Dk green vinyl. As far as I know, Centurion Formal Coups were only avail with Sandlewood int. Is Nutmeg a dk brown? And it has no power seat, but I have the works from an Olds for it.

    Noisy, you are correct...464 is for a Sandlewood interior, sometimes called Light Covert, not a Dark Green. Sorry Adam, you missed this one!

    See: http://autocolorlibrary.com/cgi-bin/...buick-pg02.jpg for the chart.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks, brad... I have a lot of rust under the vinyl top, so it has to come off. I'd like to paint the whole car one color the same color as the int.

    oops...I crossed my eyes when I looked up the interior code. It is Sandalwood.


    Nutmeg is pretty much a brown color.

    After a week-long hiccup, the forums are working again. I upgraded the vbulletin software to the latest version, and in the process, grenaded all image attachments and avatars.

    Nothing EVER goes smoothly with software upgrades, it seems.

    My 72 formal coupe has a Dk green vinyl interior I dont have my car with me at the moment so I cant verify the numbers for it but the car has been in my famly since 72 so I believe it is stock.

    I don't believe there was any restriction on interior colors for the Formal Coupes. Mine was black, so I know they were available in more than Sandalwood.
