I think it is a very nice and not often seen color. As for a vinyl top, to me, White is a better match with the color than black.

Can you post some photos of the interior? Not many online and my new to me 68 SS had a Buick interior that the pervious owner thought was beyond repair and threw out. I have some questions as to how wide the rear seat is and other small questions I probably dont even know yet. I feel a few photos will help that out until I can go to some car shows, if I can find a factory interior there...

Are you on Team Chevelle ? There have been a number of 68's with the Buick interior and there may be people who can answer all your questions. If you need to buy all new interior, you could go back with Chevelle stuff too, if the rear seat is the same, which I'm not familiar with.

I'll try that I haven't been over there since the new format... Yes I could go chevy interior and it came with standard chevelle seats, from what I'm finding are not the same as Buick. I believe Buick had a narrower rear seat and looks to be a different design front bench. I always have thought the Buick door panels with the horizontal chrome design was very cool looking and since this has a Buick trim tag I think I'm going to follow thru
