This is the style front and rear bench seat pattern my 1967 four door came with, and I haven't seen one that matches it while shopping around for a replacement cover for the front bench.

The rear bench cover is flawless with no fading or tearing, so I'd like to keep it and just replace or repair(if possible) the front due to the torn panels if possible, but I've had zero luck finding a replacement and am coming to y'all for a little help.

If its not a 1967 pattern and turns out to be a bench from another year/model I'll just shop for that instead, but I am just not familiar enough with all the old school seat patterns.

Thanks in advance for any information or guidance on this, and have a good one.

That is absolutely a local shop recover. Looks like a typical taxi cab job. Either get a local shop to try and match the rear or start over with the correct available covers.

THAT is a local-shop re-cover, or an amature upgrade I'd guess. The original Seats would have been either cloth & vinyl with the same upper pattern as you have on your door panels, or possibly all vinyl in the same pattern w/ those long oval buttons on the seat-backs like your doors have. It could be, too, that the original skins are underneath those covers you have.

You could have that same style that you have re-done, but I'll bet that it'll cost nearly the same as getting new seat covers. I just purchased some custom all-vinyl covers from Ciadella interiors http://www.ciadellainteriors.com/ in the correct factory pattern (my own custom colors) and I couldn't be happier for the $550 bucks they charged for a complete set.

Let us know how it goes.

Now now, taxi cabs are noble and honest conveyances!
Thanks for the info. I figured it was either another model bench cover or something along these lines. A previous owner had gone through some of the restoration process on the vehicle maybe ten to twelve years ago and this must have been a corner he cut. I'm not too big a hardass when it comes to all the numbers matching and 100% correct interior details in terms of seats but this has crossed a question mark off my list that's been lurking there for a while.

Thanks!

I see you are in Birmingham, so if Enterprise is not too far to drive, Randy Childress does great work - especially on older cars and his prices are very good for the quality. He did my 68 and my truck and I am very happy with both. He should be pretty easy to find if you want to look him up. Best of luck!
