Ni-i-i-ice. . . From the pics the color seems a bit darker than modern day Toxic Orange, but not to the point of 70-71 Burnt Orange; pulled out of the oven just right and that interior contrasts to just the right point :2thumbs:

Bet you are just waiting for the day you can start putting smiles umm...miles on your ride :)
