Richard replied to one of my posts with pictures of this car.... With a color scheme that was much better than what I was planning for my Net.
My original color was a black interior with a solid light blue exterior. This Blue with White top/interior was too good to pass up!

As a result I have sold my brand new (black) door panels and head liner. Also I have purchased white bucket seat frames. I am still shopping for white door panels but that is another post.

Ill get to the point.. Because of the color change I am left scratching my head..
As I am shopping for a new interior I am noticing that the door panels are Pearl White, the seat covers (ebay) are also Pearl white.
I need some opinions.
Does the interior of this car look PEARL white to you or just WHITE. Same question for the exterior.
To me it looks White on the outside and Pearl on the inside. And if it is pearl white, what about the headliner (which I only see for sale in white)

Stamm, that looks awsome. Check with legendary on the color of the headliner.

To be clear - this is NOT my coronet. This is the pictures that Richard posted - which hooked me immediately on the color scheme.
That said, MY net is at the body shop - 90% ready and should be painted within the next few weeks. I am hoping it looks HALF as nice as this one when its done!

The more I look at this the more I am convinced its Pearl on the inside and plain white on the outside. Maybe its the pics, or my old eyes. I will call Legendary and get their opinion on the headliner. I did not think of that. Appreciate the tip.

The seats and arm rests in the pictures look White to me, but the door panels look Pearl White. Our '68 Legendary seats and panels were Pearl White, the factory color. I believe the '67 color was Pearl White from the factory, as well.

Yup, seats and door panels should be Pearl White for 67, my armrests, I repainted with myrhide quite a few years ago, I don't know if those were Pearl White or not!!

Before anyone asks, yes, I do have a few more similar pictures of this Coronet if anybody wants to see them and no, I do not have any engine pictures, or information regarding paint color specifications, options, where it's located etc. I've had these pictures for awhile now and I just don't remember where they came from.

As far as what parts of the 1966, or 1967 Coronet Pearl White interiors were actually Pearl White, I can say that after quite a few years of looking into this color interior option, because I'm also going with the Pearl White and Black color combination on my own 1966 Coronet 500, here's what I've seen.

Parts That Are Always Pearl White

(1) Seat covers, front and rear, bucket or bench seat option.
(2) Door panels, front and rear, bucket or bench seat option.
(3) Rear vinyl covered metal bucket seat panels and both lower left and right side bucket seat vinyl covered metal trim covers.

Parts That Are Always Regular White

(1) Armrest pads

Parts Than Can Be Either Black Or Regular White

(1) Interior front door and rear quarter window inner sheet metal. I've seen this sheet metal painted both black, or regular white.
(2a) Headliner. If the inner front door and rear quarter window sheet metal is painted regular white, then the headliner is usually also regular white.
(2b) Headliner. If the inner front door and rear quarter window sheet metal is painted black, then the headliner is also black.
(3a) Sun visors. If the inner front door and rear quarter window sheet metal is painted regular white, then the sun visors are usually also regular white.
(3b) Sun visors. If the inner front door and rear quarter window sheet metal is painted black, then the sun visors are usually Black also.

Parts That Are Always Black

(1) Dashboard metal shell.
(2) Dash pad.
(3) Bucket seat, or bench seat frames.
(4) Floor carpets.
(5) Carpeting on lower sections of bucket seat back panels.
(6) Door panel carpeting if so equipped. This carpeting is located on the lower sections of the front and rear door panels.
(7) Floor console if so equipped.
(8) Steering column assembly.
(9) Steering wheel if equipped with the two spoke plastic steering wheel.
(10) Rear package shelf cover board

I can also post some pictures of the 66 and 67 Coronet interiors with the variations in Pearl White and Black if needed.

One last thought here and that is that I've talked with a couple of folks at Legendary Auto Interiors over the past few years and if someone would like to have a headliner done in Pearl white, it could be done, but it would not be factory correct. From the factory, the only interior parts that were actually Pearl White were the seat covers and door panels.

Richard - You are a Coronet Encyclopedia! Thank you for all the extremely detailed information you provide to us on this site!

Question on the above information.

1. Parts that are always black include the bucket seat frames, yet I purchased a pair of white frames that were (or certainly look) original. Also the pictures of this car have white bucket seat frames. Would these be from a different model such as a Charger?

2. Based on your info, the sheet metal of the inner door should be white. The armrest is also white and the door panel Pearl white. Do you have pictures you can post for samples? My concern is that the white, off white will not look good and I would like to get a few good examples before I pull the trigger on this paint scheme. The body shop is pushing me to pick my paint but the multiple shades of white is making me a bit nervous.

Again thanks for your help and please don't post anymore really cool color schemes for a few weeks. I don't want to change my mind again! :)

Hi Rich,

That sounds kind of like an Italian term and since Chrysler is now owned by Fiat, that's cool as long as you and Mike don't start calling me "Luigi" Dang, probably not a good time to mention that my very first car back in the early 70's was a blue Fiat 600 sedan which looked very similar to "Luigi" who is a yellow Fiat 500 huh? rofl

Thank you and I'm glad I could help.

Since I want to answer your questions with more than the four pictures that I'm allowed now in each post, I'll need to answer your questions and provide more information in multiple parts and posts ok?

Bucket Seat Frames - Part 1

On the 1966 and 1967 Coronet factory bucket seats, they are designed with three metal panels that are covered in a textured vinyl material that is color matched to the seat covers. These thee metal trim panels cover all of the seats internal framework except for a very small portion of the seat backs lower arms where the seat back section of the seat mates to the bottom section of the seat. The only time that you will see this small exposed section of the internal seat frame, is when you push the back of the seat forward like you would when someone is accessing the back seat. I will show you pictures of this small part of the seat back framework arm in a little bit. I will also show you several pictures of the inside and outside of the three metal trim covers that I've mentioned above in a later post.

For now, here are some pictures that show a bare internal 1966 Coronet two piece bucket seat frame. You can also see the upper and lower section seat springs in these pictures. On a side note, when you rebuild your bucket seats, make sure that all of these seat springs, top and bottom, are in good condition or your new seats won't feel like new seats!

I Ran across some pictures of white interiors tonight. Looks like Pearl/White is standard. Although I was concerned about the two tone look, it appears to be just fine, In fact, if it was all the same color of white it may look funny. The combo kind of breaks it up and makes it work.

I've always really liked the white and black interior color combination on Mopars, because I think it highlights all of the cool interior detailing that Chrysler designed into their cars interiors in the 60s and 70's. For me, I feel with an all black interior you lose some of that detailing without any color contrast.

I will admit though, that I'm not sure if I like the white inner door and quarter window sheet metal color, because as mentioned, the factory did use various shades of white to accent various interior features, but for me personally, it doesn't work as well as it does for other two tone color combinations that were offered, because there just isn't all that much color contrast, so for some, it just makes the beautiful Pear White door panels look "dirty" next to the brighter white surrounding sheet metal. I'm leaning towards painting that sheet metal the factory black that was also offered with the Pearl White seats and door panels, as I think that really does accent the Pearl White seats and door panels with the much more extreme dark and light color contrast and of coarse, the black highlights in the interior will gp well with the black highlights on the exterior of my particular car. Just .02 worth of opinions from a guy who has been looking at these color options for quite awhile now.

body color upper door frames also look great with white door panels

My Legendary door panels finally arrived - Pearl with black carpet. Although my car is still at the shop, I do have a spare door around so I thought it was time to play with some colors.
First I painted the metal white - which will be the same color as the roof. Once dried I put the panel on - the results were not great. As Richard mentioned, the white metal does in fact make the panel look dingy. This picture does not do justice, but not many really do which is why I started this experiment today.

http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn28/stamm321/DSC_4439_zpsba95e63b.jpg

So I headed down to the local Lowes and bought two shades of blue paint. The first, light blue looked really nice in person

http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn28/stamm321/DSC_4443_zpscc393d19.jpg

The second blue was darker, and I did not notice that it was metallic until I started spraying it. This picture does not do it justice, but if I went with this level of metallic I would have to put some hydraulics on the car.. :)

http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn28/stamm321/DSC_4445_zps98513160.jpg

So I am leaning towards the lighter blue. Just for kicks I did some work in Photoshop to get an idea of how it would look finished. I definitely had reservations about the triple color interior but I was pleasantly surprised at how it looked on a finished car.

Did you think of trying an off white to match the panels? I'm in agreement with the bright white causing the dinging look. But I'm not too keen on bright blue with the black and white interior. Hope you don't mind my opinion and it's you car to do as you like. After all it's you who is going to look at it all the time so don't go by me for a final decision.

I looked at my 66 and the bright white looks horrible IMO. I thought someone did a poor match, but evidently not.

I appreciate you sharing your opinion. I keep going back and forth myself. I do like the way the triple color looks, kind of retro to me - at the same time I am sick of deciding what to do about the color.
an off white/pearl paint job was definitely considered for the interior. the issue I had was that adding pearl on the interior would introduce a 3rd color for the paint booth - Blue, white top and pearl interior. Painting the metal blue is the path of least resistance and, based on the mock-up pictures, I HOPE I will be happy with the results.

I will have to say that after looking at several different 66 and 67 Coronets over the past few years with the two tone white with black accent interiors, I've decided not to go that route, but will instead be repainting all of my current bright yellow interior sheet metal the factory black to offset my Pearl White door panels and seats. The only thing that I haven't decided on yet is if I will go with a white, or black headliner. With absolutely NO disrespect to you stamm321, I'm just not a big fan of three or more colors in a smaller area like our cars interiors, as it looks a little "busy" for my tastes, but as Rich mentioned, it's your car, so you should paint it the way that makes you happy, as nothing else really matters. ;)

Did you already buy them? Because you could always order 66 panels in the color of your choice.

Just food for thought. Or in my world, more confusion.

I've already ordered and received them. I would also have to find plain white seat covers and repaint the seat backs (which are pearl). No matter which angle I take, I will need to get some custom dyes, unless of course I went with white and pearl mix which is not an option on the table.
I am going to move forward with the triple color doors and once they are painted, do another mock up. they can always repaint the interior in pearl if it looks bad.
