1988 ST165 - Red with Blue Interior? Is this right?

Postby NC_ST165_1988 » Mon Jun 14, 2021 3:25 pm

I have a NA spec ST165 Alltrac. The current seats and back seat are blue. This seems to be incorrect since the exterior is red. Is there a way to decode the vin to tell me what the seat color is suppose to be? Is there anyway these seats are correct?

Also, does anyone have front and backseats for 1988 Alltrac? Black or gray would look so much better.

Thank you for your input.

Look for C/TR on the VIN plate or sticker. Those are the Color/Trim codes.

My black st165 had blue-ish cloth seats front and rear. All the plastics were black but the seat cloth was blue. The cars with leather had black leather, but the cloth is a shade of blue.

I think the black interiors fade to a shade of blue that is different than the actual blue interiors. My blue ST165 certainly had a different shade of blue than my gray one with faded "black" interior.

I think Scott is correct. The colour fades after 33 years

The only color interior I haven't seen fade crazy is the brown one. Their dye back then wasn't good against UV.
