Stunning New Fabrics & Vinyl

Med Brown Cloth - nub-weave nylon, stitched-in quilted 2"-wide verticle pleats Light Turquoise (Green) Vinyl - basket weave Dark Blue Vinyl - quilted Light Gray Vinyl - basket weave Dark Copper Western (Brown) Vinyl - irregular ranch brand impressions

CRAFTWEAVE
is an unusually durable material of combined nylon, rayon, and cotton. It comes in black and gay striped pattern in Mainline models. In Customline models, the Craftweave is of nylon and rayon. The brown and gold is in checks, with a gold-yarn thread interwoven. The green and black is in wide-spaced "nail-head" pattern, and the blue is in diamond pattern.
RANDOM-TWIST
is a distinctive new pattern for Fairlane Club Sedan and Town Sedan. Random-twist is a luxurious, long-wearing nylon-cotton-metallic yarn combination. The three colors available are brown, green, and blue.
FLAKE-PATTERN
in a brown and a black, is fabric of nylon, rayon, and cotton mixture. With both brown and black, the irregular "snowflake" motif is in white. Brown or black Flake-Pattern is available in Fairlane Victoria and in the Crown Victoria.
VINYL
is of two types . . . a firm type for door kick panels and similar areas, and a resilient type for use on seat cushions and backs. Its pattern varies from quilted to smooth, according to model and application.
STYLETEX
interiors are those combining vinyl and a woven plastic, providing a type of interior that's durable and easy to clean.
