Does anyone know the correct armrest color for a '57 2-door sedan with factory charcoal and white interior? Also, does anyone know a source where I can locate the rear armrests (with ashtrays) for this car? Thanks!

Welcome, Tom. :sign0016:

The trim number on your cowl tag should determine the original colours. I have never seen reproduction rear armrests so you will probably have to search for used ones.

From what I've seen, the armrest base is the darker interior color.:anim_25:

Thanks guys, I appreciate the welcome and helpful suggestions. I see nothing but front armrests on Ebay, and it seems in general like the parts keep getting junkier online. My interior is 2-tone charcoal and ivory from the factory, so I'm not sure if black or white or some combo of both would be correct. I'm trying not to obsess too much over this, but you know how it goes!

The rear armrests are not reproduced at this time that i know of. I have yet to see a 57 sedan with armrests unless someone has added them from a 55 or 56.

57 Delray rear armrests

My 57 Delray with copper and biege interior had beige armrests from the factory. They are hard to find as they crack easily. Jerry

My 57, 210 came with them....They were the original two tone, surf and highland green in color.....Everything else in the interior was original as well.
