Inside the red theme continues, and now its joined by plenty of black accenting. Our favorite is probably the upgrade on the bench seat to a comfortable black cloth. Even the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo follows this black theme. Its great to have side vent windows and sliding rear glass, because it gives you those great old-school truck breezes.
