Blue cloth interior

Hi everyone.
Anyone know what exterior colours would have been available with a blue cloth interior on a MK2. 2.5 pi auto saloon of 1975 vintage?
I think Ice blue was one of the colours. Were there more colours?
Thanks all

Re: 2500 eBay

Hi

Seen Yellow 2500 S on ebay (reg MYK 165P).

Anyone know the history of this car ? Looks good but high price.

Re: Scabby wheel arches

Thanks guys. Y our advice has been taken on board and already proved invaluable.
I have walked away from 1 scabby car and have stopped thinking about it.

I guess a repaired car would be ok provided there is evidence of repairs and its been done to a good standard.

Thanks again.

Re: Scabby wheel arches

YEs I think that is a good point. Next time I view I will ask the seller to demonstrate.

I recall now that one of my previous Dolomites had this issue.

Thanks again.

Re: Scabby wheel arches

Thanks Gents, some great advice. I am familiar with Dolomite Sills, so I now know what should be inside at least.

I will keep searching.

Thanks again.
