Nope. The metal strips, A-pillars, and seat backs on a Parchment '67 are to be painted Cameo Ivory. They do not match the parchment seat color. Much lighter. Thhe steering column, wheel, dash, and carpets on the door panels and floor are black.

so let me get this straight....in 1967 GTO convertible they had a WHITE top BUT the interior was not white because that was not offered but instead PARCHMENT..the metal seat backs, A post (interior) and metal strip along the top of the door where IVORY not Parchment...if that's right that's messed up..lol too many darn variations of white.....so is all that I said correct???

Yes. You have the picture. And it's not messed up. It actually looks excellent. My own '67 is that combo. Check out original pictures of these cars on the AMES forums and you will get an idea of how they were built and what they look like. A lot of guys make the mistake of having parchment paint made up to paint the door tops and seat backs.....the vendors even sell it. The factory never used parchment paint on these cars.
