Just sharing a little happiness on my end.  I bought the car on 1 Nov 1991 and over the years have had it apart and have been completely through it mechanically.  On 3 September last year I dropped it off at the restoration shop in Sparks, NV (Reno).  It went down to bare metal, body came apart, glass came out along with 70% of the interior.  Front buckets were recovered with new foam and springs repaired as necessary.  New custom door panels (I have my originals, but they were cracking in the arm rests).  Inner fenders, license plate brackets, misc. bracketry under the hood, and the wheels were all powder coated.

I picked it up this past Tuesday, 8 April....just in time for spring time in northern Nevada and a multiplicity of car shows and events that begin in ernest next month.

Perhaps it is my ignorance, but I thought it would be comfortweave, like my 712 car.

I don't know how many different seat material combos were available, but mine were / are just vinyl.  Rear bench seat is original - it hasn't been recovered.  Still in great shape - no one ever sits back there, except maybe during one of the parades during Hot August NIghts.
