My wife says she'll take it. Of course, she has no money, so I doubt you two will be able to reach an equitable agreement...

Hello

That's one very nice "cat"!  My wife likes it too.

Is the price like telephone numbers, (ie lots of digits):D?

Take care and good luck selling it.

The styling of that car is beautiful!

 

Mr. Wildcat, did Buick offer red welting on white seats,

or any contrasting welting? I've never seen that in a Wildcat before.

I know Cadillac offered that feature several years later.

Not offered.  PUI has reproduced covers.

Ted, what is PUI?  Are you saying that that company

makes seat covers that are not authentic?

(That certainly could be the case for hot-rod customers.)

 

I always like to see cars restored as the factory produced them,

and it's great when suppliers help us out with correct reproductions.

PUI is a manufacturer of interior parts- seat covers, door panels etc.  They used my 65 Custom Wildcat seats - buckets, bench, convertible - to reproduce authentic parts.

This is what they look like:

Those are PUI seat covers and door panels in this car.  I instructed them to put the red piping on the white seats, so they are custom made to my specs.  I did a few other upgrades like AM/FM stereo with kick panel speakers, wood sport steering wheel.  The car was originally blue with standard two tone blue interior.  Upgraded to the deluxe interior since that was what PUI offered.  If the car has not sold by then, I plan on bringing it to Spring Carlisle.

The car was born with a standard interior, no arm rest on front seat.  I got a deluxe front seat out of a salvage yard (with the arm rest) and upgraded the interior seats and door panels to that.  I found the door panel metal pieces on Ebay.  PUI made new covers and door panels for me, and I had them customize the seats with the red piping. A while back I back I had a 75 Eldorado Convertible that had the white seats with red piping.  I always liked the look
