    Recently been looking through Truck Paper at some older trucks. Most that I look at seem to love that red upholstery.

    Don't get me wrong, with the right color exterior it could look really nice, but so many it didn't fit. So was it that you could only get red, if so, why? Looking for a good history lesson!

    my 359 originally had a red interior red interiors used to be pretty popular i think there awful though. red interiors were even pretty popular in pickups and cars in the 80's-90's

    Apologize for the hijack, but what'd that run? My dad needs new interior in his 359 to go with the new paint job.
