The shape and the material pattern are exactly like the windlacing in my FX, so I'd suggest it's original FX, but it just seems a little too well-preserved for 65+ year-old windlacing.  If it was red, I'd buy the lot from you in an instant.

G'day Gary

I believe that type / style of windlace was used in various colours on all FE models

It was also used on FC ute & Panelvan not sure about 215 & 217 sedans, but on FC 225 sedan & 229 wagon it was the black / silver fleck

Attached pic is of FC panelvan windlace in green
