The number from the production order of our '60 Lark convert is:

14 748A BRV 4

I believe that the BRV 4 indicates Pleated all vinyl (4) in brown.

Does anyone know what the 748A indicates?

Would anyone with a '60 convert with a brown interior be able to post or send me pictures? The interior in our car is not original and I'm trying to get an idea of what stock looks like. There's not many or these running around here in Wyoming.

Thanks Again!!

Don't have pictures and don't know numbers but all '60 convertibles were upholstered with U.S.Royal naugahyde. I believe Phantom Autoworks purchased the remaining NOS upholstery from SASCO. If Rene doesn't have it, he can produce it to factory specs. (330) 337-8879

Here's what the material looks like. It has sewn-in 2" pleats. I don't have any good interior photos, and the 1960 brochure is of minimal help.
The 14 is the line number for upholstery. Each item listed on the build sheet had it's own line number, but the number doesn't always appear. 748 identifies this as the brown vinyl for a convertible. Other body styles have slightly different numbers for their BRV.
The A appears on the build sheet and the window sticker, but isn't explained anywhere else. Not sure why. Don't know anything about the 4 either.
