Default Cloth Interior Pics?

Hey Everyone
My interior is in desperate need of replacing. I was thinking about doing something a little different and doing a vinyl/cloth interior. I have been scouring the internet for pictures of interiors with the vinyl and cloth interiors but am coming up mostly empty handed.
Does anyone have any pictures of this type of interior or know where to find them?
Thanks a lot

To my knowledge no one is reproducing the vinyl/cloth interior. I think very few cars were optioned with it so that's probably why it's not available. An upholstery shop might be able to make something close if you had a sample they could compare it to. I've been buying squarebirds for 35 years and have only seen two cars with vinyl/cloth seats so it must be pretty rare.

Do you have a copy of the VTCI rules. There are a few pics of cloth interiors.
Not complete by any means as all three years are different. The 58 and 59 are similar but the patterns were slightly different and the 59 had a silver thread running thru the cloth.

What year are you looking for??

Thanks for the replies guys. It is for a 59. I was able to track down a couple of pictures. I actually dont like the look as much as I thought I would. I think I am going to black and red vinyl.

I do not think they make black an red vinyl. You can get red and white or black and white but I have never seen Black and Red.

I used to work for the guy that owns this organization and I know where it is located. If you want more pictures or certian shots, I am going up that way this week and could try to swing by and take them for you.
