Your build is far from being "black and white".

Where did you get the pattern for the bottom part of the door panels? Or did you just make them yourself?

Jagred, that is a great looking interior, certainly unusual. I don't like grey normally as every modern car for about 15 years seems to have a medium to dark grey interior here in Australia, but I like that combo you have there.

Tinman, you can recolour leather, it is not hard, but you need the right product. To go from black to tan you would first put on a colour in between black and tan, then put on the finish colour. I used to repair and recolour leather, vinyl and plastic for some years and recoloured many leather jackets. Did not take on lounges etc, but did touch up repairs, small and large on lounges, car seats etc. Stuff I could do on site. Just get the right product and you are laughing.

I think that the carmel or some kind of medium brown would look great with the green exterior. I like the white dash (out of a shoebox Ford?) too, and you might need one of these to size an aftermarket speedo. I made this one out of mahogany for my 50 Ford that I did years ago.

Topmoo, I have the stock gauge cluster/speedo with updated gauges, but your wood accent looks great!

Looks like your car has a white dash or interior? Got any more pics of it you can share?

Here is a fellow club member's truck...he is a "horse guy" and wanted something that reminded him of horse tack/leather. It looks much better in person, especially when seen with the $35K paintjob framing it...

I built that car in the early 90's and did all the mechanical, got it running and driving, but only painted the interior. I got into a very nasty divorce and had to sell it before getting to the rest of the paint and body, and for some reason I never did take pictures except of the speedo. I thought I might make a bunch of the rings and sell them - but I just never did anything with it.
I lost interest in a lot of things for a while, being a single parent with a 5 year old daughter and going through a divorce that went on for 4 years. I ended up getting custody and the house but didn't get back into cars until I built the woodie in my Albums. I wish I had pics of that '50 Ford, it was pretty nice with an EFI 5.0/auto out of an 86 F150 that had been wrecked. I had a Jamco front suspension and the rest was stock. Wish I still had it, but a lot went away to pay for lawyers...

That must be some "club". Nice looking interior, 35K paint - Wow!

Another option might be Indian or saddle blanket seat covers. Google that and you'll find a wide variety of colors and styles. I think that is an attractive and inexpensive choice in old trucks. Of course, I'm in AZ. Might not work everywhere.

What a glorious interior, and the paint job looks like it would be stunning.

I found this on a truck for sale on ebay. I like the look but you could change the Maureen color to ???? Green. Tan. Then the white dash would tie back in to it
