1970 Chevelle SS......Ivory or Pearl Interior Color?

We are working on a 1970 Chevelle SS "clone" project and I have ordered a full interior for it. I ordered a Pearl interior and received some of the pieces but yesterday I received a box of interior panels in the Ivory color. Whoops.............I called the interior supplier and they said the 1970 Chevelle had Ivory.

The exterior of this car is going to be Astro Blue. What is the correct color for this car?

Thanks, Mark

Ivory pearl.. :)

Some literature called it pearl, but I believe ivory to be the correct term. Atlanta build sheets call it ivory.
Ivory is a hard color to get right. Are your two different colored pieces from the same manufacturer?
There's the problem. Get all your stuff from one place... I ran into the same problem last year getting Parchment interior for a '69.. (I didn't order the stuff, just installed it) I had to paint several items to make them match the Legendary door panels and seat covers.

FYI, '70 Ivory or Pearl interior is very similar to '69 parchment in the process of making the color. There's a solid white basecoat that goes on first, then a pearlescent top coat goes on to give it the pearl effect. The base color affects the final color, as does the number of coats of the pearl topcoat.

Good luck!
