Default Looking for interior Photos

I'm focused on my interior this summer, and I was hoping to see some interiors so I could look at some original colors.

My car's a 1970 Lemans, but any interior pics would be helpful.

According to the body tag the interior was saddle, but the dash I took out of here was dark saddle color. I wasn't sure if that was the original dash or if someone put a darker dash in there and made it a two tone interior. This car was in my family many years before I got it, and one of my family members thinks the dash was saddle, but we have no photos of it back then to reference.

I am attempting to apply new vinyl on the dash myself so I could make it either color. Just curious if a dark saddle dash would look nice with saddle interior, or if I should go with all saddle.

Thanks in advance.

My 1970 gto is all original and has saddle interior and the dash, pillar post, kick panels are dark saddle.

Ok cool. Maybe this is the original dash then. Previous owner put shag carpet in here so I don't know what carpet, seats, or headliner was.

What I do know is kick panels, pillar posts, and doors were all saddle. So maybe mine is the reverse of yours where everything was saddle but the dash.

Darker the better when it comes to dashpads IMO. I hate the glare reflected into the windshield from a light dash.

Great point Greg, I never thought of the glare being an issue.
