    Thanks Everyone! I do like the color and will most likely repaint it that same some day. The interior is a bit weird, it has maroon carpet, seats, and dash pad. The lower dash is black, but above the dash the pillars and headliner are/were white. I've not decoded the build info yet, not even sure it'd specify that in there.

    Today was fun, spent part of the day swapping out a bad power window motor, putting fresh bulbs around the truck. Still have to replace 2 bulbs in the roof mounted clearance lights. I took it for its first night drive last night and noticed the lights were surging. After a quick search looks like the lights need to be moved to a relay circuit. Not a big deal. Is there anything else I should move around as well, while I'm digging through wires?

    Love it. Used to have a similar 79. Wish I’d held onto it.

    The lower dash is black, because that would most likely have been the base color of the truck, the silver being secondary. I seem to recall hearing that the upper trim in the crew cabs was always that lighter color. Can't recall the source for that, so not 100%. The red would have been whatever color was optioned for the rest of the inside.

    Interesting. I'll dig a little deeper and see what I can find. The guy I bought the truck off of mentioned the odd color build. Thanks for the info.

    Yep, there's a whole gang of us here now. For a long time, it seemed like everyone was from Texas or Oklahoma...
