Good morning,
Does anyone know of a source for the correct interior fabric, headliner and carpet for a 1941 Packard 120 Club Coupe?
The original appears to be a gray patterned cloth.
The car will be a nice driver, and I would like to find the correct cloth or as close a match as possible.
Overall, the coupe is very nice, except the interior is very rough.
Thanks
Jim

SMS in Oregon is really the only game left in town. They will mail you sample swatches. But their lead time can be over a year on some products.

Thank you for the suggestions. I will follow up with SMS and Bill Hirsh. I am hoping to find the original pattern or something close.
I have recently purchased this ‘41. I will check to see if it is already a part of the registry.
Thanks again,
Jim

I'm going to share my experience with redoing the interior of my '32 901. To begin with, the car was not painted with the standard colors offered by Packard in 1932, but since one could order a 901 from the Packard in primer and have it "Painted their of their color of choice". Of course it would need to be a color available in 1932. We selected IM504 (which was on a 1931 De Soto- if memory serves me correct), which is a reddish cherry color.

We received a sample from SMS of a multi-colored stripped material in a dark grey with a reddish overtones and ordered 26 yards of it (at ~$160/yd - ouch!!). We waited 8 weeks to get the material and when it arrived it was not the same material as it was a multi-colored stripped material with green overtones that clashed with cars color. Needless to say we played hell with SMS to return the material for a re-fund.

We eventually went with a ribbed, wool broad cloth in a light-medium grey (another 26 yard @ ~160/yd). We bought 4 yds of gray headliner (~~$150/yd) which was heavier that than the seat material and difficult for the upholster to install as it was very "stretchy". For each order, we waited 6 to 8 weeks for each order.

We bought cut pile carpet for a Mercedes locally from a supply house for much less than SMS.

We checked with Hirsch, but their options were very limited - not sure about now.

I wish you the best - Good Luck.

BTW - we are happy with the end result, but the road was Hell.

The wife & I are glad the Albert ("Mr. Upholster") was able do a great job on the car's interior!!

ANOTHER BTW

Your '41 Coupe will take less that the '32 Sedan. In addition to the seats, we did the door panels and sides with the seat material, which used 18 yds of the 26 we bought. The headliner & sun visors use 4 yds. Not sure on the carpet.

Assuming you have the standard interior, I think you would need 3 materials: striped wool broadcloth for the seats, a plain material for the door panels, and a lighter weight material for the headliner. It might be ok to use one material for the latter two.

I went for the seats & door panels having the same material because of not being able to find a non-ribbed wool material whose color looked good. In addition, there is a '31 Packard at the Nethercutt that was done that way.
