No need to be a purist, just purchase a UK spec rubbernose MGB, made after
1975 and they all have velour upholstery, as did all the MGB GT V8s.

Mind you it was early in the use of woven materials and they were not all
that good but authentic nonetheless. Yes the woven upholstery does have all
the good features you mention although a bit less long life in a roadster
than vinyl/leather.
