Interior Resto on 66 Riv - Looking for Ballpark Cost

Recommended Posts

I would like to get a rough idea on cost to restore the interior on a 66 Riviera. Here is what needs redone.

Both front buckets

Rear seat bottom and seat back

Headliner & visors

Rear sail panel covers - board needs replaced too (not just recovered)

Both door panels - Some of the board will need replaced at the bottoms along the lower carpeted edge.

Carpet

Dashpad

The color is black. I've been fortunate to have never needed more that a seat back or bottom so have no idea what all this might cost today. Hoping some of you may have done a complete interior on a big car and can give me a ballpark number.

Thanks

Check out Clark's Corvairs. They have good riviera parts as well as Corvairs.

They have everything you need and are extremely pleasent to deal with.

Jason,

Just remember, you get what you pay for. I got the front and back bench seats done in my 55 for around $600 plus materials. It looked better than the old seats, but I later had them resewn to get the wrinkles out. Get references from local car guys and look at their cars. I got my Wildcat completely redone for under two thousand dollars including materials by a young guy starting his upholstery company. He is now charging upwards of $12k for the same job working for a well known hot rod company here in Austin (co-owned by Jesse James).

Yea I was thinking that too. This job has to be perfect and unless I get lucky and find a quality shop that works reasonably priced I'm going to need to dig deeper into the pocket book.

Thanks for the replies everyone
