    How about bright white or silver vinyl, tuck and roll with blue zodiac piping?

    A light colored interior "opens" up the space, while a dark colored interior tends to "close" it up...white means not so hot in the summer while a dark interior gets damned hot, even in the shade...I always opt for a light colored interior.

    White vinyl on the seats with white and blue on the door panels would look real nice and be period correct.

    Please, PLEASE tell me you're not using those modern bucket seats in the front of this car? No matter what pattern, color, or material you use, those seats are going to look like dogshit. You have a very 1960's looking car there and a set of 90's buckets are going to stick out like a boner in sweatpants. Go with a bench, or at least some very squared off, low back bucket seats, like Corvair, if you have to have buckets.

    If you are going to use the new seats, and the shop your going to is decent then have them remove and fill the head rest mounts and have them reshape them more to match the rear seats.

    I would think that if you went true sixties stylewhite vinyl w/ diamond pattern in the inserts in a color similar to the darker tone, and match the piping to that..you would have a real smooth custom look.

    I wish you could have thrown this out a few days before you were getting it done, I would have loved to sketch up a few ideas for you.

    everyone does roll and pleat, yet there were other eras of custom car interiors. I would stick to a good vinyl no matter what, it will age best.

    here is a quick sketch of what I was thinking...diamonds did not do it for me...but sticking to something similar to what was there factory...

    now on the light color...I think you have to feel out the white or the silver...then the lowwwer tone match it to the blue...
