Haha, didn't mean to mislead anyone. That's a pic of stock Mitsu interior I found on Google showing the exact seats I ended up with. The rest of my interior will be much more period-correct!

I thought about those, but ended up with these from a local yard for $100. No shipping (or tax, private transaction). These Mitsu seats have nice panel delineations that will look good with contrasting colors. I've been 3 days now getting mounts built and have finally finished. I'll get pix after I re-Schutz the new metal and again after the seats are in.

farna I've used Autocraft seat covers a couple times -- they are made by Lebarron-Bonney. All fit good. If using for replacement upholstery and removing the original you will need a thin foam or quilting padding (1/4") to go over the original foam for a tight fit (instructions say so!). I used one without the original covering for a bottom cushion on a Rambler bench seat. I had to get some similar color vinyl and lay under the cover around the reclining seat hinges because the stitched "notch" for the hinge was a bit generous, but other than that I had no complaints with any of them.

The little Ramblers typically had grey seat covers in all the base model cars because it went well with any interior color. A dark grey may be your best bet.

DanTwoLakes It would depend on how big of a change there is to the tunnel. You might have to order some cut yardage (one yard will do) to go along with the pre-molded carpet. Worse case scenario, you have to cut out the tunnel part on the pre-molded carpet and do the tunnel separately. It should blend in just fine.

That's on my list of things to check out. Last time I had a seat recovered here, it took a couple months to get it back. There are a few new (but untested) local businesses though...


One question on carpeting: My tunnel will need to be widened and raised, can a pre-molded carpet be altered to fit? I had someone come in and patch a square in my home carpet and you can't tell where the seams are, does this method apply to auto carpeting as well?

S10xGN Once again, my car is a "Rambler" in name only. The interior is being replaced with late model bucket seats. Lebaron-Bonney has a section in their online catalog called "EZ Boy Custom Seat Upholstery" that claims to have patterns for over 6,000 seats. Was just wondering if anyone has seen their product in person or could otherwise vouch for the quality...

matt167 Ledgendary Auto Interiors is the only place I know that does anything with AMC interiors, but they only list Rambler Rogues and S/C Ramblers, which are bucket seat cars, so you are SOL if you have a front bench. They still may be able to help

DanTwoLakes Yes, but LeBaron Bonney specializes in model "T" and model "A" Fords. Their sister company, Hampton Coach, specializes in early Chevies. I doubt they would have patterns to make seat covers for a Rambler American.

Dan,

Have you ever seen anything from "Lebaron-Bonney"? They can make custom covers for about anything in many styles and colors. The only thing I see "different" is their covers go over the existing upholstery instead of replacing it...

S10xGN Do you know of any companies that make factory-fit replacement "skins" for renewing seats? I'm looking around right after getting off the forum this am...
