Most of the wood throughout the interior of the car is old growth american red gum wood, commonly called satin walnut. Gum wood is a slow growing tree unique to North America. Old growth trees were totally harvested by the 1950’s. Replacement wood should be available some time after 2060. Much of the finish you see is the original stain and layers of hand mixed shellac applied by Denver & Rio Grande craftsmen 75 years ago.
