Default 1931 Dash Rail Color

I am restoring a 1931 Tudor Standard Sedan. The car was originally all Black but I am changing it to Lombard Blue which was also a correct color for the Standard model in 31.


The question I have is what color is the dash rail supposed to be: black as the top portion of the car, or Lombard Blue as the bottom half? I cannot seem to find that information, and I have seen rails painted either Black or Lombard Blue at shows I have been at. Which is the correct way to go?


Thanks!


Bob

It, and the other interior moldings should be painted maroon. Never were interior moldings painted outside body color
