I believe the model shown in John's post is Carib Coral and Rodeo Beige,
not the Cordova Red and Kenya Ivory as shown in your photos, Ray. As to whether the coral and beige is an authentic combination, I can't say for sure. I've seen Carib Coral two-toned with Kenya Ivory, Sheffield Gray, or Charcoal Gray but I don't think I've seen it with Rodeo Beige. That doesn't mean it isn't correct, however. And without a dealer showroom album showing all the available combinations, I'm not going to go out on a limb and say it's wrong.
