1959 Chevrolet Pickup Custom Interior

It is sometimes asked by restorers, ‘What is the correct fabric for a 1959 Chevrolet with a custom cab?’ Answer: The same cloth material was used on the top of the line seats and door panels throughout.

The following pictures show this interior material on a 1959 door panel in a 1959 Chevrolet custom cab with 12,000 original miles [see photo below], and seen on a page from the 1959 Chevrolet Salesman’s Data Book.

It appears this material was used one year. Upholstery shops having left-over partial rolls may have this rare upholstery material in storage and not be aware of what it was used for!

For the perfectionist, the following is a page from the 1959 Chevrolet Truck Data Book, printed September1, 1959. We thought you would like the real description from an original 63 year old book. NOTE: They consider the word “Custom” their very best. Yes the 1958 has a slightly different fabric appearance.
