Hi, I'd like to get some opinions if I could....car is a 67 SS/RS, bucket seats, black deluxe interior, (with white trim bands of course) and headrests. The driver's seat has for a long while had a tear about 2" long, between the white band and the black material, located right where the bottom part of the seat and the seat back meet. The interior is original and otherwise in good shape. From what I've seen, some of the repro seat covers look pretty good, others not so much.

So, choices seem to be

-find someone who can professionally/neatly stitch it
-replace the seat cover, either complete or just the bottom part, and have it not match the rest of the interior perfectly in all likelihood
-replace all of the seat covers and lose the originality
-leave it alone

Any opinions?

Thanks!

Fix it. A good apholstery shop will be able to save the rest and replace the torn panels. You should end up with a real good looking repair. I have done that in the past and been pleased with the results.

I too have a 67 RS/SS with headrests. Mine is an L35 w/TH400. They are not very common.

 Dont froget to check the padding and the springs. The failure of either probley lead to the original tear.
