Default Pickup Interior, late 1930 Closed Cab

Am researching, trying to find info on my Pick Up interior as it looked like as Henry made it. What I remember from seeing other trucks that have been refurbished, interior panels/cards on those trucks were vinyl covered panels, or plastic panels. Also these trucks, have every possible inside Cab space covered with material/cards.


I think my truck, which has a couple of door cards that are more of a thicker poster board (not corrugated), are original. Picture attached of the material. The door cards are the only usable part of the interior I have.


I read through the RG and JS and it mentions the material in one place as cardboard, another place as pyroxylin coated cardboard.


With all that said;


Is there info, books, and/or videos that show what the inside looks like as original (what was originally paneled, and what was not paneled)?


Do the Upholstery Venders offer kits with this type of material (Cardboard or offer it in sheets to make your own?


If all else fails am considering laminating some layers of poster Bd. Any suggestions on making my own material are welcome.

Do you have the Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards?
The panels are black-brown two-tone cross cobra grain cardboard.

Mine were all black. LeBaron Bonney, etc., make kits to do the interior, they also make a seat that is thinner to give more leg room, for us tall guys. Mine also has a tin 'pocket' attached the the right kick-panel, like a glove compartment without a door.

What Jim said is what I used. Then I used the pictures Bob C posted as a guide. There are more of his pictures around but don’t remember where.
