Hi I’m almost 100% sure that an interior for the Johan promo style Pontiac was available some time back? Any leads?

IIRC, thee interiors were available through Okey Spaulding, who owns the JoHan rights. I had one for a '59 Dodge at one point. I'm not certain if they are still available.

They were made by a Best Models, not the same company as the current Best Model Parts  Company.

Unfortunately both guys involved with this operation have passed away. I’m not sure if Okey has anything going currently.

Note that the dashboard would be unique but the rest of the interior could be taken from a Chevy Tri-Five kit with some panel pattern definition.

Okey shows up at shows sporadically.  He has a couple resin kits and some unassembled promos, but otherwise mostly Jo-Han parts bin (tail lights, tires and a few hoods)

The conversion from a Chevy interior is certainly within reach.  But the '56 Pontiac is a four-door, so the seats used as a starting point will need a bit more work.  The front seat back will need the split filled in, and (in general) the four-door's rear seat bottom is shaped differently from a two-door's at the ends.
