Default Surfer Style Wagons

I am not sure what the hell to call this but just put it as surfer style wagons (if that is even a style haha). Anyways as some may know, I recently picked up a 63 Chevy II Wagon to run my business out of and am in the process of body work and paint. I haven't totally decided on a color but I think it will be a greenish color (similar to stock but not quite). The interior will be tan (fawn) and possibly a darker tan or an old tweed look like you may see on vintage guitar cases for the speaker covers (even on old guitar amps). I may throw in some wood grain as well but that's all up in the air right now.
Anyways, I was wondering if anyone here has any ideas on interior material, paint, etc? Pictures would be great. Here is a color I am looking at doing: http://www.carcraft.com/featuredvehi...ova/index.html
Oppinions and pictures are greatly appreciated. Like I said, I want to go with the whole vintage surfer styled theme.
Thanks!

I think Surf wagon is a look. I put it back to the So Cal beaches in the 60's. has to have a rake, simple car (not flashy or overly nice) and able to handle a long board. mag wheels and maybe bamboo side curtains (for changing closes)..

That Austin Suburban is the coolest surf wagon on the planet!! I have drooled over it every time I have been lucky enough to see it. I am putting a few surf touches to my Suburban (Plymouth). But it will pale in comparison to this bad ass rig!! Super kudos to Cindy for the sweet paint work!! It is a long way to the beach in Nebraska!!~Sololobo~

Voodoowagon, I think you're ready for your next project. I think that rig would be perfect for this part of the country so maybe you wanna trade straight up for a low milage beauty. She's all ready for surfin ' duty. Howz-a-bout-a cream puff 1990 Buick Estate Wagon??/

I can feel your giving it some thought...

No? - - - Damn.

Sir, you knocked one out of the park with that beauty. Congrats.
