thanks for the information !
On the Virginia Classic Mustang site they have 2 types of windlace . the one that says "concours" is a weave textured type but in the description it notes that 64/65 used the smooth type.
Can I take this as accurate information ?
Windlace can be a murky subject.. Here's what we have stated in our catalog: "Research shows that there are several variations of windlace used during the mid to late 60's, Different suppliers have different styles of patterns and these variations can be found year to year and in some cases month to month, variations between assembly plants have also been noted".
That said, I've got a 1,300 original mile '65 coupe here, and a 19,000 original mile '66 GT350, both with original interiors, and the '65 coupe (April 1965 Metuchen) has the smooth-type that VCM is referring to, and the '66 has the weave type.
I've attached photos of original smooth, original weave, repro generic, and repro weave. The "generic" repro is closest to the original smooth, but, it's has a bit more grain than original, and is not as soft/puffy as original.
Hope this helps..
