Fellas, I have a 1949 (Canadian) GMC 3/4 ton Pickup Delivery. The tag states that the Trim code is 394......I am having trouble finding out what color the interior was.....body is Ferrara Blue if that helps at all.

Help?

Thanks

Hogie

hi Hogieab
Trim code is 394 = Brown Leatherette
i don't have a comprehensive list of trim codes, however that particular one was very common and is also the trim code for a few of my Canadian trucks.
This trim should have brown piping on the seat with two seams also piped running down at a curved line on the front edge of the bottom seat.
the door panels and ceiling are matched to the seat but use a laminated embossed material onto stiff cardboard so it's not exactly the seat material but looks like it is from a few feet away.
the back of the seat top will have a stiff black cardboard that hooks on at three locations

i have samples of all these original parts and materials for this trim code.

you won't find a reproduction interior parts that are correct
this interior is likely a bit different than all USA models as the Canadian built trucks sourced Canadian materials.
all repo parts are modeled after USA versions which must have been different, or are just lacking in correct detail.

2ManyTrucks. Thanks for the great info. You wouldn't happen to have an image of the Brown Leatherette seat would you? I'm not looking to be exact with the interior, but would like to match the colour as much as possible.

Thanks again for your help

hi Hogie,
sorry i checked my photos and i don't have any good ones of the original material samples that i saved
i'll be able to take photos in a few months when i'm back near my trucks
i have some photos of the seat before i took it apart, but the exposed material is very damaged, the good samples were on the back edge out of the sun and weather.
ping me again in the summer time
