For my 1964 Galaxie, I used red '64 Mustang interior paint, L-6022 I think from Scott Drake for the metal parts. This is different from the Rangoon Red exterior color. For the vinyl parts, I used SEM 15363, Portola Red vinyl dye. The corresponding Mustang vinyl paint was too orange and very thin. Would have taken way to much to cover. I also went to an auto paint store and picked up some flexible vinyl primer in a can, too, as I was changing from black to red. BTW, I just did the dash pad and one arm rest, not the vinyl seats.

The redder the better to me. I'd recover the seats in red, since you mentioned you were going to recover them anyway. The lower metallic dash looks good as is. The armrests look okay from what I can see, as do the rear "door" (interior) panels. Not sure about the carpet, but you can buy new replacement that will match everything else. Too bad about the carpet glued to the dash pad. If the pad has to be replaced, you can buy new from Rhino Industries and dye it with the SEM I listed above. My dash matches the interior fine using that and has held up for 5 years without problems.

Do you know what colors your car originally came with? You can decode the information on the door tag to find out. I'm guessing it was originally Rangoon Red, with red interior. Not sure about the white top but I think there was a paint code for custom colors (white over red, or even truly custom colors not offered by the factory but specified by the person ordering it).

Good luck and enjoy.
