Re: Interior upholstery, 1964 Dodge 330 4-door



About that  "ribbed" strip that you see on your 330: my eyes / computer monitor can't distinguish that fine level of detail 
in the hamtramck-historical image. You should probably  talk to a good upholstery shop to get their opinion about re-
using that piece. 

Also, look for unrestored 1964 440's online and try to contact the owner to see if they can confirm that piece is ribbed or 
not. There probably are not too many though. 

Here is a '64 330 that has some unrestored photos linked to it. Not close up enough to see the fine details. Check it out.

Thanks,
Gary H.
