I've done a lot of searching for images that match my Mustang and it seems that it is not a very common combination.

It is the Tahoe turquoise with the Aqua dash and carpet and the parchment seats.

Anyone else out there with that combination and some photos?

I was considering changing the seats to the aqua / parchment and I see there are more of those out there.

Parchment with __ appointments was available on all cars, regardless of color. Parchment was the "white" choice for 66-67. The appointments were keyed to the car, so his was parchment with aqua appointments. A reds car would have parchment with red appointments, and so on.

It's definitely a different look. You'd think they would have wanted the turquoise exterior with a parchment or parchment with blue accents.

I’m still between keeping it original or making a few changes.

At the moment I’m leaning towards making a few changes as I’m into the disc brake conversion already.

Seems like a fairly rare combination?

I've looked at hundreds of pics of aqua / turquoise cars and that's the first time I have seen that combo. I see the Deluxe a lot. Mine is Tahoe Turquoise with standard Aqua / Turquoise interior.

Here are the seats from my car. They need to be replaced or reupholstered hence the interest in how rare this combo was.

Garage kept since new. Bought from the original owner with the original books.

Repainted 10 years ago and still in top condition. When I took the seats and carpets out, there is absolutely no rust on the floor pans.

Only place that has some surface rust is in the trunk in the wheel wells.

@BlakeTX is right. Very classy without having to go Deluxe ($$$$). And it's different. In fact, it's still in such good shape, I might want an experienced artist to repair, clean, maybe, just maybe re-use the original instead of replacing it.

Know anyone that might take that on?

I live in Podunk Alabama and if I were looking, I'd find somebody that has been crafting stuff since Mustangs were new. I bet there's an upholstery guru there somewhere. Perhaps the addition of material beneath the original, bonded and giving something to stitch to. Good luck!
By the way @craigsa I looked up the "ryperd" reference. Clever!

May have found someone in Salt Lake that does this kind of restoration work. Waiting to hear back on pricing.
