Depends on age.

From Ray Newell's book :

Early 4-piece covered in light beige cloth. Later MM in either dark beige or grey Rexine. If you've still got them, the sun visor(s) should be the same colour.

Can't see a changeover date from cloth to Rexine but possibly July 1950. Car no. 57681 (RHD).

Looks like beige or grey Rexine used indiscriminately across the paint colour range.
1956 4-door called Max
