Plastic seat covers

Recommended Posts

From my 1942 “Sure-Fit” seat cover catalog,  a striking plaid design as the catalog calls it.

My goal here is to protect the original upholstey in my Chev. It's a 57 with 43,000 and I am afraid if I start driving it the meterial will come appart due to its age.

Still looking at Jo Ann's as a possibility.


 It is probably no use to put clear plastic on the seats of an old car.

 I had a 63 Falcon with perfect rear seats, I sat on them once and the fabric completely broke apart due to dry rot.

I have installed those covers and would never put any on any of my vehicles,I still do not understand why anyone would have installed them when the cars were new. The way I look at it is with the covers you are saving the seats for the next owner and I did have a 50 Chrysler that had covers since new and the seats still rotted.
