Vinyl is just wrong in most cars prior to about 1950. It was widely used in cars from about 1953 onward. Cars of the 50's literally reeked of vinyl. It's a serviceable material and will do no harm in older cars, but it can affect the value if the car is sold. An exception might be a pickup truck of the '30s and 40s. I'd be happy to buy a 30's Packard coupe with a vinyl interior, but I'd want to pay less for it than for a comparable car with the correct type interior. The coupe has a radio, which is a substantial plus.

Ok that is pretty much what I thought, thanks for the explanation!

The 1937 115C Business Coupe just sold for $23,500. I think this is a fairly respectable price for this car but wonder what it would have brought with an original wool broadcloth interior. Still, a decent result for a very nice prewar junior Packard.

I'd guess 37 to 39 K with correct interior, maybe 40-45+ K if two people were fighting over it.
Money is a depreciating asset today. That car probably isn't, provided it's kept out of the weather and not monkeyed-up.

I agree with you regarding vinyl for broadcloth, but flexible vinyl was invented in, I believe, 1928. It was in commercial use well before the mid fifties. Vinyl when leather was the original deserves a big demerit, but Packard was using it in some applications by the 22nd series if not sooner so beware of being too broad

I have archeological remnants of the black seat and door panel from my car's original interior. The seat was leather (3-3.5 oz. drum dyed top grain) but the door panel is jersey backed vinyl. I have them hanging on my garage wall as trophies to her heritage!

1950 Standard 8 sedan now selling at no reserve. Clean, solid original car. Looks like an older repaint in a period correct grey color (Lowell Grey Metallic, Scheme A). Biggest drawback is the interior, especially the front seat. Substantial wear on the driver's side front seat area with the padding showing through the areas of wear. Paint has visible scratching and chipping but looks presentable overall.

LaFerrierre Classic Cars has a 443 convertible coupe for sale. The price is "inquire" but I think it said $98.5K yesterday.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

Here is the 1928 443 Convertible Coupe from Tom Laferriere's website. Beautiful car, but think it might be priced a bit too high:
