What color carpet would a SJ built 68 XR7 S code with Dark Ivy Gold interior come with from the factory? Would it be black or dark green? My car was original Augusta/DIG combo from the factory. It's since be redone in blue with some original and non original parts dyed blue. I'm trying to find out if the black carpet in it would have been correct from the factory. Also where were the build sheets stashed in a San Jose car Jan 8 68 build date? I doubt it's still in the car but one can hope. If the black carpet is original there might be a chance it's there if they put them under the carpet. Thanks, Glenn.

Never seen a build sheet for a San Jose built Cougar.

Thanks Royce that's good to know. I was reading the archives (topic search) here and saw the same thing mentioned by many others. Few to no build sheets found in the SJ built cars. Guess that settles that. I wasn't expecting to see/find one as the cars interior is far from virgin. Would have been cool to find though. Maybe I'll find some old change or a few interior screws.
