rallye green 68 w/ 716 Custom Ivory Houndstooth buckets...help
« on: February 10, 2006, 07:29:54 AM »
My 68 is missing the entire interior and has alot of rust. So while im on finding panels to fix the rust i go looking for new interior parts...mainly seat covers right now. My car is a 68, its rallye green, had a white vinyl top and a white bumble bee stripe, and also a rear spoiler. However it also had the 716 Custom Ivory Houndstooth Bucket int. Out of all the camaro picture i have collected from the internet over the last 4 years...i have never found one with the same ralle green/716 combo.....id really like to see what this combo looked like...or just the Ivory Houndstooth bucket for that matter....Also, I CANNOT find the correct seat covers for this car....everyone keeps tellin me they have either parchment or black houndstooth...what gives??? Ricks say that the parchment is very close to the ivory...but still a few shades off....I want the exact color and style for this car.  Anyone know of any sources?

Contact C.A.R.S. - see www.carsinc.com.  They show the houndstooth covers available with black, parchment, and white vinyl.  I assume that the white is really ivory.  I purchased my black/houndstooth covers from them and they are truly a work of art.  Each set is hand made on an as-ordered basis, so they should be able to make you a set with any color vinyl that you want.  I hope this helps you a little.

Here's a photo of the ivory houndstooth in my old 68 RS/SS. Should have kept that one  ::)

NO headrests were an additional option.
