My plate shows Paint no 315 which is Black, also shows TRIM No 164. Anybody have reference materials that shows what No 164 is ?

Rear seat was recovered but had a piece of what looks like Bedford Cord underneath, but also had a piece of what looked like an olive Mohair.

I'm going to redo the interior with original stuff-

This is an early 1933 Buick-

Any help out there in Buick land-

Thanks,

Thanks Mark-

Didn't see any judging for interiors, Hmmm. Seems odd. I'm new at the Buicks anyway-

From what I've gleaned, it appears to be mohair- I've got a sample from an original 33 sedan, and now a good set of photos of an original interior. Looks like a call to Hampton Coach in in order.

Sandy,

I am a bit surprised this info is not listed. My 29 & 31 Buicks had mohair, but my daughter and granddaughters get skin rashes from mohair. So, I used a nylon material that looks very close to mohair as long as the light hits it right.

Find a fold or hidden area to get the true color and go for it....

Hallo,

my early (december 1932 ) built Sport Coupe has color 319 it is Waldorf Maroon and Trim 161 it is light grey Bedfort Cord.

It is not the original trim, but I am nearly shure, the pre-pre owner did it original. The rumble seat is still original, not restored, in brown leather imitation.

Hi Mark-

I was too- I thought this information would be a fairly common thing. I'm guessing the trim number would be common to other models in the year, not just the 90, could be wrong.

I've been told both bedford cord & mohair.

The rear seat had partially, what appeared to be, a brown bedford cord under the re-upholstery, but this doesn't match the samples from Hampton Coach- Also this was done in the 60s maybe and the fabric was something from the 60s that they used like a top drill-

Both rear door panels, did have pieces if an olive drab mohair, that was used as a backing or something under the regulators, from the factory.

Paul R was going to send me a piece of original material off a door panel from a sedan- If these match, I'll head to find a picture of the interior pattern on a 90.

Did post a picture of my 33 90- 7 passenger sedan on the members cars and a write up on it etc.

Are there any restoration shops in the US that specialize in the early 30s sedans, 32-35 maybe ?

thanks-

Hampton Coach admitted they didn't have any information on the series 90 7PS and said they don't do any custom work.

I normally like to rely on original stuff, if available, for my research on restoration. Finding anything on the 90 is difficult at best.

Onward.........
