Default Rare factory colors



So it was recently brought to my attention that the color of my SC is a rather rare one, Shadow Rose Quartz with the black and tan interior. Is there anyone else here with a 97 in this color?

Nice.. that color is rare.. Color Code 3K7 if I am not mistaken. At first glance I thought it was the A01 Platinum Silver. I never knew that black and tan interior even existed from factory. I thought it was always brown with tan.

I was only aware of the tan and black interiors, but I remember when I saw this at the dealership I was very confused with the two tone setup. I thought it was an unfinished conversion lol, but liked it and now that I know what I have I love this car even more.

OP - is it an Auto or 5 speed ? Manual transmission will even make it rare being 1 of the 120 in 1997.

Ther was a 400 in mn that had that color, but no title. So I skipped it. You know how those messes turn out.
