In going through my picture archive, I am not finding a real good angle of the well in a car that was not overly restored.
In looking around for a good photo, it appears in the original cars some of the spare tire tray tubs were dark and some were light. I tried to upload photos, but it wouldn't let me, so links are below.

dark (and with a red interior like your car) - https://www.rmsothebys.com/en/auctio...9-cobra/175168

Anyone know the answer as to how they originally came from Shelby?
