How much are you paing for upholstery?

Well, it depends on whether you provide the material or the upholstery shop provides it. Also depends on how much upholstery work you want: seats alone; or carpet/headliner/door panels/windlace/package shelf, etc.; and whether you want leather or NOS original cloth/mohair, or just anything that sort of looks close.

Hi Crin,

I had my seats done in the Centurion a couple Winters ago. They duplicated the pattern that was already in the car. They just did the seat covers, and it was $600.

attached is the picture of my 72 Centurion Interior I had re-done last summer - I had the seats completely redone frame up, new carpet(high end) on the floor, kick panels and door bottoms, the door panels re-dyed and I had about $2 grand in it. I am picky, and it is perfect.

I just had the front seat(bottom) rebuilt on my 70 Wildcat. Cost $500.00. I had to use the orginal upholstery. It had a few rips that were concealed. I had to make this concession as nobody makes it ready made. Got a quote of nine weeks and $500.00 if I sent the original out to be reproduced. As it's summer couldn't see riding on a milk crate so decided that it would be best to locate a car that's being parted out and get the upholstery off that to be reproduced down the line. Part of the challenge of brining back a car that doesn't have many parts being reproduced. Also found the build sheet under the back seat,hadn't seen the light of day since 08/27/69.
