I have a 1963 Avanti R-2 serial number 4716 which is a late 1963 model. The vehicle has an all black interior, upholstery, dash pad, carpet etc. The instrument panel and the shift consul are fawn. The steering wheel is all black and appears not to have been repainted. is this interior combination correct?. I have been told that the steering wheels were either fawn or wood grain. Floyd

I don't think the black wheel was factory but it doesn't mean it wasn't dealer installed or previous owner installed early on. I have reason to believe my R2 was delivered to its first owner as a dealer converted R1.

When I began my career in the sales end of the new car business we routinely swapped around options, i.e tilt wheels, power seats, wheels etc. to deliver a car out of stock rather than factory order.
