Q: 1968 Body Tag – Interior Code 281
My body tag has interior code 281. I can not find this in any of the resource books. My interior is brown if that helps.
A: Brown/tan interior *was* offered in 1968. I can attest to this because my 1968 FB was ordered with and has the saddle (tan) leather interior (trim code 281). In addition, the car if original, should have matching brown/tan/goldish dash pad. Lastly the convert boot and deluxe wheel (if applicable) should also be tan/brown to match the tan/brown interior. Keep in mind though that 281 leather option was a late year addition (early June) so check your invoice date (billing history) to see when your bird was invoiced.
BTW, what do your door panels look like? The 281 option used tan/brown vinyl with a “faux leather grain” finish. (Quite bizarre looking actually…)
