Default 1961 Suburban interior paint

I'm wondering how the 61 'burb would have been painted inside.

I know the Chevy pickups had a dark grey/black dash and silver/grey everywhere else. I'm just getting familiar with GMC, though -- would they have been painted the same? And would the Suburban have been painted like the pickup?

Thanks!

Brian

That's how my Suburban was on the inside; silver with the darker dash top paint.

1961 is a one year only Bluish or Greenish Silver interior color - 1960 used a different shade of Silver that is more pewter-like. I have a code for 1961 Silver if you need it - it matches up on the computerized systems today as a Mitsubishi interior color or something seems like so it can be readily produced at any automotive paint store - I just had two spray cans made up in this very color so I could do some firewall color touch ups. I'll have to go to the body shop and get the code if you need it - dont have it here

GMCNUT,

I'd love to have that code! My interior is a golden-brown right now but I want it original.

None of my trucks have the wrong interior color Pete - are you refuting that 1961 is a different Silver interior color from 1960? Not sure what you are trying to say here
