Blue cloth interior

#1 Post by dolomitejohn » Sun Aug 05, 2018 8:20 pm

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

John

In 1975, the only exterior body colours that had a blue interior trim were Triumph White, Ice Blue or Delft Blue. French blue only had the option of a black interior. 2000's and 2500PI's both had the same colour options, whether that be vinyl or cloth.

Thanks jonnydog.
Delft blue looks like a nice colour that suits the car quite well.
Thanks again .

Hi all
Just as a matter of interest my 1974 French Blue 2500 has a original grey cloth interior. Would be interested to know how many others are still around!

In 1973 and 1974 MY (model year), the interior trim options for French Blue 2000 / 2.5 PI models were either black or grey (vinyl or cloth), but it was changed to black only in 1975 for some reason.
New model spec etc were usually introduced around October for the following year so there will be some cross over with previous year models being sold in the following year.
The 1975 range brochure that I have was actually printed in October 1974.
