The above is beautiful.
The fabric is so well preserved...how did that yellow not fade in over 50 years?
And the answer to the question is....https://www.facebook.com/auntyavettes/p ... 0983696994

Hi 65Devy!
Those are beautiful!
Never seen that colourway! Dolly Daydream J&S Upholstery..
Joanne was seeking anyone that had golden yellow duracour.. posted pictures of unfaded material from inside hems but I have never seen any!
The duracour or curtain colourway is not in either the 64 or 67 Devon Interior materials brochure....

best way to get genuine devon bark cloth is to buy a full van.
But Aunty Avette has it in four colours and you know you will still be looking for vintage fabric for decades .

You chaps let one slip past border patrol late last year...2 previous owners, original tan curtains, just reupholstered the squabs in Warwick Ardo fabric, the originals were getting pretty faded but i still like looking at them...!

But i'm going to get a set of Aunty's blue curtains for my other 65, i was never that happy with the material i chose...

What a beautifully intact van ! You should be very proud of that one. everything including the washing bowl fantastic !
You will not be disappointed with Auntys curtains she is making my lost rear now. I have seen the fabric and it is visually indistinguishable from the vintage when compared.
