I really love these 55, 56 Packards. Every so often you see a car like this where 95%  of the interior looks fantastic and there is that one spot (drivers arm rest) that is totally trashed. What to do in this situation? I for one would not want to dump the rest of the interior, as it looks so good. Can this be repaired? Can you match this fabric? The rest of the car looks fantastic and a reasonable price too.

That plastic seat cover brings back memories of a Long Island humid summer and Mom having to protect the first new couches we ever got from us kids nasty hands.  The sound of peeling yourself off the couch when it was 90 degree's with 80% humidity just "sticks with you"

Yes, it was like that in New Jersey in the 1950s too,

and in Dad's first new car, a 1957 Plymouth Savoy 4-door sedan,

black with (thankfully) a white roof and white "SporTone" lower accent.

Those thick clear plastic covers at home and also in the new car kept the material clean,

but going for a ride in the summertime, we learned to bring along a beach towel.

During the frigid winter months, it was almost like sitting on a piece of plywood.
