Would love to do a full red interior conversion...may still need to do it even if I stay with SSG. Funny how I hated red interior in the Foxbody and Sn95 mustangs but for some reason it looks great in these classics!
For me, one of the greatest features/characteristics of 50's/60's/70's cars (I'm speaking in general, not just Mustang alone), is that the manufacturers gave consumers SO MANY crazy and wild choices for interior trims and colors! You could go blue, or green, or white, or red, or tan, or even sometimes bright yellow or orange... You could do all-vinyl, leather, comfortweave, cloths, crazy/beautiful embroidered fabrics, PLAID, etc.. There was so much choice, such that if you special-ordered, you could truly make your car "your car".
These days, you get black, gray or tan... Mostly in leather that's not really leather (it's vinyl-coated). If you want to get a red, or green, or blue interior, you've got to special-order with a German, British or Italian manufacturer, and be ready to scratch a 6-figure check. It's the only way you can buy a new vehicle that's truly personalized and relatively unique.
So when I commonly see guys, yanking their factory original blue or red or white interiors, and replacing it all with black... For me, I just don't get it.. That's taking one of the neatest aspects/personalities of 60's/70's Mustangs, and tossing it in favor of the same cave-like black cabin you get standard in any car today.
