I sent my car to my trimmer for what was going to be a new carpet and a few little jobs, however, we decided that the door panels left a little to be desired and the seat coverings were not fantastic. So it's a new interior then ! When Joe removed the seat covering we found this underneath, I presume it is the original cloth, do the pleats look correct as my seats the pleats were more raised, we will cover the door panels to match as before they were flat.

My guess is thats NOT the original color for your car but.... More needs to be looked at to be sure. Interesting find for sure...

Looks like the original seats might be fawn beige which would be correct if the Cord started out life as a black car.

Probably a hair (tiny bit) more "plump" in the pleat, - you would be looking to places on the seats that were not "sat on" such as faces of seats or upper rear backrests and .... - yes, a lot of authenticity has been lost to people "not following factory instructions/guidelines/patterns".

I still haven't got to the bottom of the original colour, my hunch is burgundy but I don't know.
