Upholstery reproduction

I'm looking for a reproduction of the original upholstery in our 1972 Ambassador. I have found a few close matches. Any good ideas on where to find a match to the original? The first photo shows the original print. The second I found online. Thoughts?

Personally, I would go for a modern, but conservative fabric. From what I've seen, even in the most conservative restorations that I have seen rarely do the owners go back to the old original look in the fabrics they use. You want it to look fresh, right? Using the original fabric patterns may be more likely to take you in the opposite direction (old, stale) in the eye of the beholder.

Well, unless you are going to get the matching shocking orange shag carpet...

I would like to keep the look as original as possible. So the shag carpet is a must!
