Try SMS fabrics in Oregon. They sell vintage upholstery material.
That is typical of the late-50s "freestyle" jazz/beatnik music/style influence in materials and patterns.
I agree, here's a link. They have lots of old stuff, I have been dealing with them for years...Good Luck...Sid http://www.smsautofabrics.com/
Hey Dave, any luck on this one yet?
You guessed it........I am still looking for the above green material.......I hope to find some.....Thanks, Littleman
Try abc autoupholstery in philadelphia .He has alot of old rolls of stuff.
If that is metalflake green material..its called "Zodiac".....and is still available
Have you tried getting in touch with Schindler's fabrics? They're right there in Ohio, and they have probably the largest selection of patterned vinyls. Even if they don't have it, they might be able to tell you who made (makes?) it...
Just for the hell of it.Give Ledgendary Auto Interiors a try Dave they might be able to reproduce it for you.It's a shot anyway.
The pattern is rolled on that vinyl with a large heated drum. It has to be the full width of a roll (55-60"), and as big around as the repeat length of the pattern. If that drum isn't still around somewhere, I'd love to hear what it would cost to have that stuff reproduced...
Man, that stuff is cool! I've never seen green. Good luck on your search.
