Saw the picture of the Distributor - I have been buying spark plug wire sets for eons now from brillman.com . I have found a number of NOS Distributor caps that have zero continuity as to the points that stab the wires whether it mild oxidation (that I cannot even see) or some sort of protective coating - I have been sanding the spikes and also using my voltmeter to test continuity. And, hands-off the carbon center contact pick-up for rotor - they are delicate.

I took some pictures today but I am beginning to think my dash board is too dark in colour. I also photographed the window garnish mouldings in the daylight and they are the same colour.
I have also included a picture from Google Images. The colour is dark blue. Hope this helps.

I finally found a picture of the original dash colour but unfortunately it is blurred.

Gentlemen: I have been following this paint colour discussion for some days and offer the following. I tend to agree with Terry Cockerell (Australia) that the present colour blue on his Westchester dashboard and Garnish mouldings is a bit too dark. It looks like someone painted the edash cadet gray but with the dash instruments still in place, note it is blue under that location. I don't know where Terry got the great photo of a Cadet Grey car thru RF door but that colour looks proper. The Engineering Changes notes clearly state that the dashboard and Garnish Mouldings are to be #7136 Blue , the same colour as the exterior ona a Geneva Blue car. For comparison I am attempting to attach a current advertisement of my previously owned Geneva Blue S#32410S. Hope this assists you in this international effort to determine the proper paint hues in France and Australia. Here's the link : www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/cord/812sc/2053283.html

I found a better picture of the interior of my Cord before dismantling it. You can see the original colour on the window garnish mouldings.
