I've had good luck with Coast to Coast leather, you may have to buy through an upholstery shop as they sort of like to sell wholesale.

 

You can buy Marshall springs that are individually covered springs, but they're not strong enough for a car seat, they're more for home furniture.  I do not know of anyone that sells proper seat cushion springs that are pocketed.  I've restored a lot of sets of these springs, very time consuming to restore correctly.

Wow is right!  That's a new one on me, the wire reinforced burlap was used on a lot of cars, fascinating that it's available again.  Thanks, interesting stuff!

 Just a side note for those that want to obtain old used leather to repair a old original interior,

 Look in Craigslist for a old sofa or leather chair in the "Free items" You can find just the right wear pattern for your project.

Thanks for the replies , will call coast to coast and the springs might have potential , the ones in this 53 eldorado were cloth covered so I may call them to see if they offer cloth , thanks again
