Hello, I own a 49 Plymouth 2 dr and my car is the boliva Green color and my steering wheel is a light Cream color, the column is brown color. the Dash is a Faux Wood grain, painted on the metal. The door panles wher a solid color and the seats where like a pinstripe. The Seat cloth is kinda like a Mohair and I used a company called L. Walston Auto Interiors 37435 Porter Box 2230 Lucerne , CA 92356 760-248-7345 for the material for my seats and Headliner. Good luck. where are you located? I am in VT

I am restoring a 49 convertible too.The dash of the convertible is painted bodycolour,unlike all the other models.
This site offers a lot of valuable information,if my memory serves me well you will find it at Publications and then Judges Manual.The upholstery is a little complicated,the parts catalog states ;Vinyl and Bedford Cord,in Blue,Red,Tan and Green for the convertible coupe, as well as leather trim in the same colours.Also there is Leather,imitation (50")(in rolls)in blue,red ,tan and green antique available for the convertible.
I hope this helps,
Good Luck,
Hans van geffen.
