I also used to mail pieces of the Original fabric I would harvest from the under side
edges of those seats (no fade) and mail them around the US to upholstery wholesalers
and never got a decent match

Yes, it appears there is Vince. But, is the material on my seat the same material (Koroseal) that the original poster is asking about? In other words, and exactly as asked in my previous post (#3)
How the hell do I know ?

I think the original material was called Fabrikoid--produced by Dupont from nitrocellulose resin applied to cotton drill. It's been out of production for decades, but I think you're right that modern Tolex could be a convincing replacement.
