I got some of the board from Tru fit carpets in Dandenong, Vic.
It’s about 1.5mm  thick cardboard type material with leather embossed pattern on one side. Black colour.

I have no Idea what "Leatherboard" is but When I was restoring my car I ordered a new parcel tray from CJ pony parts and unpainted piece of what I would call MDF turned up. I painted it black and was not happy I then glued (Spray glue in an aerosol) a vinyl leather look material to it and although far from original it looks the goods.

Until a couple of months ago my company made package trays for Toyota’s production in Australia. I low grade vehicles have an injection Moulder Tray but the high grade vehicles have one made from material called kenaf. It is 50% poly prop and 50% kenaf fibre which is a hemp type renewal material.

The board can be low temp low pressure moulded and we stick needle punch fabric top the A surface. We are currently stripping out our plant and there are a couple of pallets full of these boards that will be dumped at auction by Grays online just after Xmas. If you think a couple of sheets would be usefull for your project let me know and i’ll Try to put a couples aside for you. We are in west side Melbourne.
Always dreamed I'd have one!

The replacement trays made for the 1969-70 fastbacks are being made out of compressed cardboard. It is much the same material that they manufacture the 64-66 Glove Box inserts out of

As Neil said, I made a parcel shelf for my 66 from 3.5mm Masonite from Bunnings, cut to size including speaker holes. If you have the old parcel shelf, use as a template. I then upholstered it with some thin black carpet type material I got from Clark Rubber using contact adhesive. I think it is similar to what they use for boat floors. Happy to post a sample if interested. Works a treat. Not sure how this photo comes up.
