Headliner has been in several topics here but maybe it is worth one more :D

I have a '53 (delivered early '54). The old fax from the factory which I have only states that it has have 'Kunstleder' i.e. leatherette interior but no colour. The car has red leatherette backseat and based on the remains of the carpet it has had tan carpeting. I presume it has had tan headliner. However I have also been told that there was actually more 2 colours of headliners back in the days. My car is sold and delivered to Europe and hence is Euro spec if that makes a difference. So what is the verdict? Just two options or more?

Aki

If you don't mind spending some $$$ the Reutter Book / Cert for your car provides an interior sample sheet pic(s) & data sheet with the material names (A start). Be patient it takes awhile to obtain.

Thanks Curt - I know the Reutter book option and probably I'll order it anyway. As you said it takes a while and would like to get forward with the interior and headliner colour is only thing which is not yet confirmed.

Aki,
If you are just looking for original color combinations then Brett Johnson authenticity book at the very end (page 136 for the last edition) gives body color, seat color and top color combinations. The Ruetter contact as Curt suggested would be the specific to your car. I think one of the posting by James Davies gives a few current sources for very good material matches. ... viewtopic.php?p=298733#p298733
I would also check their site and see if they have additional information. please let everyone else know if you find more or better information...
