Original color...

I was looking at a '74 914 recently. While checking it out I made a couple of interesting discoveries...

1. The car was black on black, and about a #3 driver; all in all, not too bad. Looking through the windshield, past the A pillar, the dash vinyl was pulled back (shrunk) just enough to see a little splash of orange peeking through. There is not a single trace of orange anywhere else on the car, including below the dash, except the inside lip of the glove box (at the glove box door) looked like it had been orange and had been blacked out. Is this normal? The inside of the front and rear trunks were clean, and black, with no evidence of orange anywhere. Were all 914s originally orange on the dashtop metal, prior to being painted and upholstered by the factory?
Keep the Shiny Side UP!
