Grandpa had a '61 that was powder blue. There were no gold parts. The back seat panels, etc., were all silver. Dash was brushed silver. Rug was a turquoise blue as were the interior vinyl parts of the vehicle, except for the dash, which he had replaced with a black one but never had dyed to match the vehicle. This car was stock owned by our family since new. Best thing I can say is to contact one of the T-Bird restoration companies and put this question to them -- many good sellers of vintage parts online who can answer this question for you. You may also be able to get a build sheet from Ford's historical department which would tell you exactly how the car was optioned, etc., from factory along with some restoration hints and other goodies.
thanks for your help, not a bad idea to make it my own. and I`ll try to find ford historical dept.
