It a shame they did the interior in solid vinyl. There are so many gorgeous fabrics for the forward look cars.
There were 3 stock interior patterns for the 59 WIndsor.
One of the cloth / vinyl patterns was standard in the USA built Windsor, while the other was standard in the Canadian built version.
There was also an all-vinyl interior available for them but it was a different pattern than what's in this car, however I don't mind the interior pattern on this one at all.
The exterior needs the missing emblems and scripts put back on.
The steering wheel on this car has been poorly restored - look close is cracking, bulging, and about to fall apart.
Below photos are of an OEM all vinyl Windsor interior. For what it's worth, this seat pattern is identical to the pattern used on the 300-C which of course was tan leather instead of red vinyl.

The all vinyl interior also had different door and side panels. This car has the correct panels for an all vinyl interior. I personally like the hood and trunk emblems removed along with the blocky Chrysler letters front and rear. I think it looks much cleaner, and I will probably do the same on mine when I start the exterior.
