Default Inside the boot...

G'day Folks,

Perhaps these newbie questions will dry up - perhaps not

If you're all getting fed up with this constant barrage of new threads perhaps I should ask the moderators to move my build thread over to this section?

Anyway - this one's about the inside of the boot =>



It has been "blessed" by someone with a paint brush and probably a tin of Hammerite

No big deal - at least it isn't rusty



But


It does beg the question - what should it be like?

Would the inside of the boot normally be in the same colour as the body colour or would it have originally been a different colour from the factory?

Oh yeah forgot to say - lots of pictures on the interweb show the inside of boots with the same body colour on the insides

This, however, may not be period correct

In the Land Rover world we talk about "rivet counters" - the anal few who know exactly what is factory correct...

...I'm looking for the factory correct information.

A clue maybe, Showing a later Amazon with body colour inside boot.

http://www.volvoamazonpictures.se/bros/136a/136a.pdf

And another, 544 sales brochure with a pic of boot open showing body colour.

Any metalwork should be the same as body and interior.

Well done

Good find

(I had looked in my newly acquired 1960s hand book but it is in Dutch and in black and white)
