Hi Marty, yes, I'm sure it's original. I've owned the car since 1976; it hasn't been driven since 1980 (stored in my homegarage 'waiting' on me...).. I've talked to Steve previuosly, in fact, I think he has a similarly optioned car. Maybe he will pipe in as I've never had a car judged in thecamaro organizations, but I have attended a couple of them recently in trying to learn about the organizations. I don't want to install reproduction materials in/on the car, but I think if I had an 'original seat cover' in better shape than what I have on my driver's seat, it would be advantageous to me in judging (and also I'd feel better about the car), so that's why I'm looking and hoping someone who has replaced their interior, but kept the original stuff, can help me.
