Paint code 11 is Gala green. I see some green around the edge of that tag.

Code 63 B would be red leather B would refer to black top .the instrument panel and interior moldings are painted what ever the exterior color is , in your case paint code 11 gala green.Picture shows a 49 in Sunmist gray

Hi as far as I know on the convertibles the interior moldings and dashboard,inner area around windshield etc were painted the body color on correctly restored and original cars .Closed cars ,sedan and sedanettes are painted a two tone gray color no matter what exterior color was. I think Buick started this on open cars on the 1941 model.Hope this helps.Gary
