40 Caddy Interior fabric and carpet
« on: January 30, 2007, 02:35:35 PM »

I believe that the fabric that was in my 1940 Series 72 was wool broadcloth (trim code 52 I believe).

But what about the carpet and trunk liner?  Were they the same material?  Different?  I believe that the interior carpet is wool, but it is a bit tough to tell.

What did yall use when restoring yours?  I am trying to stick with originality as best as my budget will allow.

Joe, I dont know if any of it is still around, but for 1941s, and possibly 1940s, Ron VanGelderen, when he was still President of the Carpet and Rug Institute, broke down an unfaded scrap of trunk material and had it re-woven, even to the correct colors and being a rectangle instead of a (nearly) square weave. I have also seen many limos that used material similar to the seats used. Any further help out there?
