Thread: Madras interior pics?

  1. #1

    Madras interior pics?

    I've recently picked up a 73T that was ordered from the factory with blue Madras plaid interior, but is now black. While sample pics of the Madras fabric are available online, finding pics of a complete interior is a lot more difficult.

    Do we have any forum members who have a madras interior (preferably blue), who can share some pics to show the extent of the coloured leatherette & madras fabrics? For example, are the A & B pillars coloured or standard black? Is the top of the parcel shelf black?

    Many thanks...
    Scotty

    I believe this appeared on Bring A Trailer some while back. Probably not factory.

    You'll probably find something in here, at least for reference:
    http://www.early911sregistry.org/for...ght=show+seats

    The two posts above are incorrect. I believe I've seen the blue material available from a few sources including doepper(sp) in Germany. I happen to be the current caretaker of the 4 nos bottom seat covers (3 madras one houndstooth) that are in a pic that's floating around here somewhere. I'm happy to update the photo (if I can find the box of the covers) if you need it. Sorry, I won't send the cover.

    Regards,
    Eric

    Thanks Eric - yes, the top two pics are not Madras and add zero value to this thread. They're just some random check patterns folks...

    I've pored through the 'show your seats' thread, but none there either. These interiors are thin on the ground...

    Yep, seen that one Chris - thanks though!. The key is getting a pic of a Madras interior, not just seats or fabric swatches.

    There's a couple of "blue interior" pics for the 72/73 cars in the seats thread. You can use those as a potential reference for your needs. The other side of it is you can actually use any original Madras interior pics to determine what color and material appeared on which panels on the interior, and for that matter, any interior color reference besides black will show what color went onto a particular panel. My own thoughts is that it's just madras on the front seat inserts. From there, it would be blue on: door panels, dash fascia, rear panel on the vertical wall over the wheel wells, also the wheel wells, and then the lower panel on the rear panel, and finally the back seats. But then again, I'm primarily an SWB guy, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt....

    Here are some pic's of Blue Madras material that I considered using on a set of 82SC sport seats last year. I was undecided between the Madras material and the blue/green tartan. I am pretty sure this is correct. Eric, does this look correct to you? If anyone needs material, I have a good source.
