there are some pictures existing - pre pepita - showing one of the 901 prototypes -13 325 - still with a early dash, with seats covered with some sort of Glencheck fabric.....the later 901 protos - with then ready designed dashboard still do show already a pepita version


enjoy

I was very young when my father bought his first Porsche, a new 59 Cab Hardtop only, from a Chrysler dealer in Bryn Mawr PA. That car was Ivory with a Ruby red hardtop. It had either a tan or red interior and cloth seat inserts. I remember the cloth because he had to have it replaced due to wear. He put 100k miles on it in 2 years and replaced it with a 61 Ruby red coupe. That and his 63 coupe, Ivory w/red interior, had vinyl inserts. I have always thought that generally US cars did not have cloth. Thanks Bill.
