Currently the interior in my car is tan and in A dilapidated shape. Needs new carpet, door panels, head liner and seat covers. Problem is I can’t find tan panels or seat covers. While I prefer the tan but I may be willing to do fawn if I could find a good picture of a complete fawn interior.

I can’t make a decision on if I should swap to fawn interior and be able to buy the pieces or stay tan and have or try to make new tan pieces.

What year and model is your car? Can you post a picture of the data plate, for accuracy in determining the correct color. What some call tan, might actually be fawn. Headliner is the easiest of the parts to have made. Door panels the most difficult. Getting seats correctly made seems to be a problem.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

Please post the year and model of the car and the 3 digit number on the cowl tag next to TRIM.
Your interior sounds like it would be either Saddle or Fawn. In these years, Chevy didn't have an interior color called Tan.

Car is a 64 2 door Bel Air, trim code is 863 and paint code is 920. I don’t believe the interior is stock at all but I have nothing to base it on. Here is a photo before I pulled the seats out and redid the floors. I painted the section of steering column black when I removed the automatic lever.

That trim code (863) in 1964 is a fawn interior in cloth & vinyl - bench seat.
The paint code 920 is Autumn Fawn Metallic.

Perhaps Verne has a picture or link to pictures for a 64 Belair interior.

61 or 62 Corvette has a Fawn Beige that was my favorite body color and interior. I think a full size car would look great.

Here's a photo of a correct '64 Belair 2-dr interior. Although it's blue, the pattern would be the same but Fawn.

No, but I have a pair of door panels off one that my son owned. I can take photos of them tomorrow.

Thanks guys, I still can’t make a decision on color. I like the fawn carpet but that seat material is to light for me
