'53 Caribbean Upholstery

All the available literature states the upholstery is leather.
All of mine (seats, door panels, quarter panels, kick panels, etc) are vinyl. Everything appears to be original. At some point did the factory switch from leather to vinyl?

No, at some point over the last half century someone has had upholstery work done.

If you have an interior code, you might look in the intro section of the parts manual. See what materials Packard said was used on your car. On some models they used something called "leatherette" and another called "imitation leather". Think those might have been a vinyl like material. I believe they were mostly used on kickpanels, lower doorpanels and maybe seat frame bottoms but not on the actual seats.

Kick panels, door panels, and seat frames are vinyl.
