[Poll] What is your favorite FC color/upholstery ?

For me,It's Seamist Jade exterior paint and '62 circus striped upholstery.
Although I'm not passionate about Fawn interior paint,it would compliment the seats and exterior green.

What colors/patterns inspires you,or are your favorite? Pics are nice.

I too love that 1962 interior fabric. I find two-tone white - a color scheme unique to the Corvair 95 - to be the most elegant and distinctive FC exterior color.

You know,I've not ever thought about the fact that other vehicles typically didn't use color in the belt-line portion of a two-tone paint job.
Another FC anomaly. Neat.

My preference is going with stock colors and stock upholstery that was OEM.
However with Dad's Rampside I went with something completely custom. But I know that's not where you are going.smileys with beer

Your example van looks excellent and works for me.

For me, that would have to be the turquoise and white inside and out.

It's an old English nomenclature to suggest where one keeps important State materials,ie; registration.
Or rather,where I hide the flask and the special wrench for belt failures.

Its on my to-do list but I gotta make some improvements to my interior. First thing to go is the upholstery. It's stout and durable material but the colors are faded and clash. I've been eyeing the Clarks cloth upholstery that's red and black (color code AP) but I wonder how durable it is. I wish the doors weren't painted red but I can live with it for now until I figure out what I want to do.

This is what I have now:

Actually, I never liked any of the stock FC interior colors or patterns, but they were "trucks". Art, your interior is too nice to scrap! What if you painted the inside of the doors black and made some door trim panels in black and white? The bright red doors don't blend next to the black dash and cowl.

He would still have an Orange interior, with a Red exterior.

Yeah, that orange has got to go. I think the simple fix for me is to re-do the seat in red.

I actually like the fawn interior of the stock options but it won't work for my red FC.
