Was the red and white upholstery unique to the white car or was it also
available in the red car? Were any other features (e.g. side moulding,
covertible top colour) dependent on the paint colour. I am sure my, now
Ed's, red car was originally white and we are wondering what are the
indicators other than the paint underneath the chips!!!
Thanks, Dave

Here is my understanding ...
Yes, the red and white interior was only fitted to white cars, white is the
least popular colour and many have subsequently been changed, normally to
red, white cars always had black side mouldings, blue and green cars always
white side mouldings, red cars could have either - generally white on early
red cars and black on later ones.
Looking underneath the paint is a clue but some later cars had panels (doors
and engine covers) fitted from new that under the the paint were a different
colour from the bodyshell and at least 2 cars were shipped from new painted
black.
Finally, some late cars had all black or all red interiors of a different
shape and there are some very dark green cars around that were built for
the Berlin police.
