Hi - my 1953 Coupe has what appears to be a headliner with material resembling "Mohair".. is this what would have come on the car from the factory?

Regards

Steve

Yes. It is a brushed cotton twill. Is yours tan or grey?

Cool Steve. The usual interior trimming suspects offer a synthetic cloth which is of poor quality but very similar to the original, and a wool option, which looks the part from the front side, but of course the original was not wool.

LeBaron Bonney provides a brushed cotton twill that is the correct color. Basically identical to the original Nice and fuzzy like the original stuff Reutter used.

My '53 Super has grey leather/corduroy with grey headliner. What other colors are used on your interior? Beige leather/cord?

Hi James - I am still undecided on the color (exterior or interior) the car came from the factory in Azure Blue with Gray Leatherette. I have owned the car since 1972 and will own it until I leave this planet, that said, I'm not concerned with resale value or original colors. I think I'm going to go with either Ivory exterior with a light tan leather and dark brown piping for the interior or Pasha Red and Gray interior.

Regards
Steve
