Default Hounds-Tooth fabric

Anyone know a source for about 1 1/4 yards of the original 1960's hounds-tooth seat fabric. Not copies, the original stuff.

Thanks.

Here's a discussion on houndstooth cloth:

Thanks. On the avatar appreciation and the .url reference.

I went to the 911S registry site and found the original "style 730" cloth from Porsche is tough to come by.

I also found that Sitzklinic in Germany http://sitzklinik.de/ has similar cloth they call "Pepita" see comparison below to the original Porsche "730". Close enough if 100 point concours are not your goal

Flip one of the two swatches above upside down and they're almost exactly alike.

Obviously the driver crashed into the rail after taking a look for a second too long.
