Default Fabric Choices in 32 Deluxe Coupe Interior

Lets see some photos of different fabric choices in original or restored 32 Deluxe Coupes. Trying to decide on Mohair, Bedford Cord or Broadcloth for a project. Which one do you prefer and why?

As shown in the photo below, I chose Bedford cord for three reasons: it was the original upholstery, is the most compatible with the exterior color, and it looks better (to me) than the authentic mohair (Rose Beige), which had a pink cast to it. Copra drab leather is the other alternative if your car is of relatively late production, but it seems (to me) more fitting for the deluxe phaeton and roadster where it was the only interior upholstery material used. The black and white photo is of an all original car with Bedford cord upholstery.
