    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    TR2/3/3A Re: Body Restoration - Inner Sill Replacement

    The paint is original. I believe my father said it was called "Pale Yellow", but I think it's the same as Primrose. Maybe the name changed in 1959, but I'm not sure. For some reason the floor pans...
