I think 81 was silver too, at least the early part of the season, like 1980. 1982, Benny and Buddy in the J.D. Stacy Lemans was red.....then Cale years, like you said, were orange.

I concur on the 1982 Ranier cars having a red interior, which went well with the J.D. Stacy Red VEE stripe from the hood down the front fenders behind the tires. J.D. McDuffie would buy a used Ranier LeMans ( The Benny Parsons " 1st 200MPH Talladega Qualifying " car I recall ) . J.D. repainted the exterior in his standard Grey & Blue colors, but still with the RED interior.

Yep, or at least, real close. The Daytona 500 winner,(the "Grey Ghost") was a car obtained from Lennie Pond and the interior was left the teal color that he was running.
Maybe with the exterior of the car painted in one of the most striking liveries (in my opinion, anyway) to come along at that point, Ranier thought nobody would notice that the interior matched NOTHING:)
