Find a local place that does interiors, they can dye them for you. I had a leather seat dyed from cream to black, looks like a million bucks!

Were the back seats in good shape?
I can't remember the back seats.

I could do that, but maybe someone out there has a black one they'd like to trade for this brown one?

Aaaaarrrrggghhhh!!! If I had any money at all, I would be there in a skinny minute...I could finish #30 with that 78!

I love the interior!

Might be worth saving the whole thing. It's not that far bad off depending on the engine.

Usually the rear seats are in fantastic shape compared to the rest of the int. no one actually ever sits back there.

The door inserts looked like new. I was toying with getting them and putting them in my car, just to have a touch of Pascha in my shark.

It actually looked like a great project car. I have no idea if they have a title for it. It was not wrecked.

I'll contact them tomorrow and ask how much they want. It's a 6-hour round trip for me, but if they price is right, I'm there. I'll report back.

mmmm..
early car - check (has the early door vents too)
5 speed - check
minerva blue - check
no sunroof - check

If I could find one like that in Australia I'd be saving it. Helluva jigsaw puzzle, and there's probably some stuff missing (other than the obvious rear light clusters), but I reckon at the end you'd be able to get your money back out again if you sold it.

I may have an extra one somewhere. I am still working out of two houses due to new marriage, so it might take a week or so to determine. I will PM if I get my hands on it.

Thanks, please do. This brown one is pretty nice...could definitely help you or someone restoring a brown interior car.

I'm with you Hilton. Heck, I probably have enough parts to put this one back together.

Kevin Lacy has been looking for a cheap early 928. This might be right up his alley. Plus he's local and has a trailer. Lets hope the junkyard dogs still have a title floating around somewhere.

Shawn, sent you a PM.

Got it, Jim. Agreed: good car for Kevin to save.
