The missing colour was reinstated.
Cars which have had their upholstery restored include:  1914 Humber TT, 1922 Humber, 1935 Bentley, Panhard, Austin 7, Lanchester, Star Benz dog cart, BSA open tourer, and a Sizaire Berwick.  Related items include: Tram seats, sedan chairs, Brough m/c seat, hobby horse bicycle, and carriages.
