I need front and rear bench seatcovers for my 1955 4-door Firedome, the front seat has electric movement.

I also need a headliner.

The body color is light blue with white roof.

Bill,

What color is your cloth and vinyl? I can't tell if it light blue or gray. Regardless, you should check with SMS in Oregon as they have reproduced the similar Firedome gray cloth for the '55. I've got a '55 Color and Upholstery book and can make a color copy of your correct trim page and mail to you if interested.

The colors are: seatcover fabric - white, vinyl - blue

headliner - light blue

Photo of the car is on page 17, of the 1955 year group, Liberty, MO.

Bill,

It's likely your car was originally fitted with Trim Code #453. Attached is a scan of that trim code from the '55 Color and Trim book.

You mentioned that your fabric was white. Suggest checking a piece of fabric out of the sun and you will likely find it was originally blue as the upholstery sample shows.

I'm not sure if SMS is reproducing this fabric; perhaps someone else knows.
