Benzilla

I have watched that movie soooo many times lol

The 79 I almost bought years ago had a saddle interior.... Crap..... Haha it was two toned saddle and brown color. The middle of the hood was brown as was the top, and the top of the trunk. Gorgeous color combo, I wish I had it.....

I took a picture of the Saddle leather sample from the 1983 interior selection album I have. This is what Saddle would look like brand new, no fading, stains, cracks etc. I agree, it is a very nice color, but I'm partial to Briar Brown leather.

Is briar brown darker?

Yes, a lot darker. Think Hersey bar. It's just about the same color as the exterior. I'll stop rambling now, here's a picture.

Nice interior! I really wish I had the leather steering wheel cover, all of these cars with leather need one.

Nice color, but I still prefer the Saddle.

God I miss all the various shades of interior colors! Back in '83 you could get multiple shades of brown! Nowadays, its like grey, black or beige!

Hi there Chad and everyone,

I miss the variety of interior color selections that Cadillac had in its previous life. Economics and the Europeanization of Cadillac have both caused the scant choices inside the cars these days. Too bad. I've lost interest in new Cadillacs anyway since they're just boring compared to the old flashy Cad barges of the past.

So, if you want a saddle interior, or a white interior or a green interior or a red interior or a yellow interior and you want a car that is truly one of a kind, just make a withdrawl from your savings account and get a new Bentley Arnage. 41 exterior colors, 7 two-tone combos, or unlimited choice in custom matching your own personal exterior color. As for the interior, 27 color choices and you can also have a custom color done if desired. In addition to all the interior color choices, you can choose matching or contrasting carpets, seat piping, dash color, etc. Check out the website at www.bentleymotors.com and look under "model range" then "configurator" and spec out one for yourself.

Is this the same as saddle its know as saffron in my 77SDV?

I~LUV~Caddys8792

It appears that your saffron is more of a reddish brown.

CoupeDevilleRob
04-17-06, 05:10 PM
Saffron is a cool color, I've never seen that before. It looks like a rust brown, I know rust is a word you don't want to associate with a car, I just can't think of anything else.

It really is a shame that interior color choices are so limited today. In 1983 you could get white, black, yellow, dark blue, grayfern (dark grey), saddle, dark briar brown, dark maroon, sand grey (light grey), and dark carmine (medium/dark red). And that's just leather, cloth a had few more color choices. You shouldn't have to spend 200 grand on a Bentley to get more than three color choices.

According to the 1977 data book, saddle was called "antique light buckskin" in 1977. My first car had that. It was cool in that it never looked dated. It was my impression that it was on one of the more commonly ordered colors. My current 77 is antique light yellow leather. Now that's dated.:)

One of the few cars I've ever seen since the '70s Lincolns with green leather.

Benzilla
04-18-06, 09:43 PM
I love Sage Green Broughams, it just has that look, MONEY!!!!!!!! Green leather is rare.

BTW, how is the progress on that thing coming?
