The same colour as my Cord interior.
Have a look at my posting in Restoration Tips for the broadcloth manufacturer J & S Taylor in the UK. Nigel will look after you.

Two things to consider with woolen broadcloth - blues (an such as reds and ....) seem to have a tendency to fade quickly (or are more noticeable as to fading), so ask what the manufacturer's thoughts regarding fading and the second is the moths like wool, so the car will always need to be moth balled and the smell is not the best. Unfortunately, there are not any suitable alternatives even in the commercial space - sort of a "dammed if I do and dammed if I don't" issue.

John, I suppose the simplest remedy is to keep the windows wound up when not in use. Another problem are mice, they tend to make homes in the headlining unless the battery box cover is in place. We need to take certain precautions when putting our cars away for safe keeping.
My original headlining had certainly faded but it was mostly out of the direct sunlight for 80 plus years. Recently while removing the seat coverings which were done in the mid 1970s we found the original material behind the front seat was in quite good condition. I suppose we can live with some fading and hope it will be uniform. The best part is owning one , driving it and sharing it.

Yes, I have seen a lot of mice destroyed/damaged interiors via battery box covers being left off, windows rolled down, and also not per se in Cords, but there are various other holes in bottoms of cars for such as seat venting, wiring, sheet metal design, and ....

Packard's seem to have some sort of express highway from under the car to the headliner - mice must be taught about it as children and put on a quest to find the cars.

I recall taking out a 5 gallon garbage can of mice nests out of a Stutz (and it looked just fine with no interior damage other than car smelled bad and owners had been using it that way) - I was super careful too when cleaning it (known a few people that became sick and had weeks to months of problems from getting into mice nests in cars). The Stutz moved on - not what I want to own in a car (especially on a damp day).
