67 11B parchment seat covers
« on: November 28, 2016, 08:26:08 PM »
Can anyone shed some light on the seat appearance  for a 1967 11B 797-Z convertible? The seats do not have the black insert line, they are all white, I also noticed that the seats are pleated up
to the insert as opposed to two flat panels that are present on seats with the black inserts. Googling pictures I find both styles. does someone reproduce the solid color style?
     Thank you,
       Victor

This is the original seats in my 12C built 797-Z interior. As far as I know, this was the only way the Parchment interior was available in 1967 Camaros.

Thanks for the reply, I too though all were the same but now I am not so sure. the seats in question were said to be original by the P. O. the car is LA built so I believe Firebirds were also being assembled
  in the plant at the time so I wonder. I see similar seats when I googled 1967 Camaro interior pictures. all the door panels are normal and seem to be aged and colored the same as the seats. Just solid  parchment.

On the Rick's website you can see what the 67 parchment Firebird seats looked like:

I think on the Classic Industries I saw turquoise and gold seat covers with incorrect black inserts, so there are incorrect or somewhat customized covers sold.

Thanks Pete,
   Yes, those are the seats that came with the car, used and worn. The P.O. states that those came with the car when he got the unrestored car in the 90's, he was not the O.O., Anything could have happen.
     Funny thing, my wife now wants the all white interior. " the white is classy and the lines (black inserts) look out of place"

Deluxe, Custom, Parchment with the "black inserts" was the only way to get white interior in 1967. No standard white interior available that year.

Can the same be said for later 68 #711 interior? the color term was changed from "Parchment" to "Ivory"  did the color also change? and did they have the black inserts?
 I saw late 68 convertible one this weekend and the owner swears its original, It did not have black inserts. for what it is worth he also stated the all vinyl interior was "comfort weave"
