What color blue is this interior?

Itís a blue original interior in a 66 el Camino. Iím going to be looking for a pad for the arms rests, rear window molding and dash vent on the passenger side.

730 indicates Dk. Blue Imitation Leather, Med. Blue Imitation Leather. So a 2 tone sort of deal. At least that's what it was when it came out of the factory.

There's more info on that trim color below the trim chart at the above link.

See if you can find a local automotive paint store. Sems has paint charts but they are about $15.00 each which is a tough pill to swallow if their colors don't match. The local paint store may have a color that matches, if not they can mix a color match for you. Auto parts stores usually have paint charts too. You might get lucky and find a close match there.

Not saying any of these match, but these are some of the off the shelf products that came up....https://www.google.com/search?q=370+...hrome&ie=UTF-8
