Saveable?

These are pics of the interior of a '56 ford country sedan. and the black isnt dirt. I found dealers to replace everything. But who knows of any good ones that are cheap and dependable?
And honestly,is it worth it?

A thought..

Have you tried just using a diluted clorox mixture. I would imagine that's mold right?

Yeah,its mold. I think the majority is dirt though. I've looked at Denis-carpenter for parts but theyre kinda high and anouther one called "ford reproductions parts" theyre cheaper what are other places that make repo parts?

FYI. The words "cheap" and "dependable" usually don't go together. And is it worth it to you? Are you fixing up the rest of the car? If you are fixing the body and repainting it, then yes, a new interior would definitely be worth it.

My angle is...

It just doesn't look to me that the interior is in that bad of shape. I've seen a lot worse, but there don't seem to be any rips or burn holes anywhere on the pics shown. Why would you want to replace it entirely if there's a posibility of restoring it? My cousin has a 67' Coupe de Ville and I keep getting on him to do the same thing. Try the heavily diluted Clorox or some other fabric cleanser before pitching it and spending alot of money to replace it.

I could be wrong though,

Is the car drivable? I would take it to a detail shop and get it looked at. Steam cleaning would do wonders and be a lot cheaper then replacing the entire interior. IMO...

On mold? This car been sitting outside for about a year with bad seals. It might just need a good cleaning but what if that stuffs in the "cushion" part as well?

It all depends......

It all depends on how much work you want to do yourself or how much you wanna pay somebody else to do. If you got new seat covers, you'd have to have the old covers removed anyway. If you remove the covers, take the padding out and spray it with a disinfectant or whatever. Buying new seat covers ain't gonna make the padding smell any better. It sounds to me like you'd rather get someone else to do it. If you TRY and fix them yourself, what will it hurt? If they're ruined now and they're still ruined after you've tried to fix them, all you're out is time not money.


Sup to you,

do you have access to a product called "spray nine"?you can buy it in the household cleaner department at walmart around here.
i painted the console in the car off white to match the used bucket seats i bought.when i used the spray nine with the scrub brush , they were stark white, I had to repaint the console.
this stuff costs about 5.$and is well worth it. If nothing else, It works bettter than an s.o.s. pad to clean tires.you will need a brush to get the embedded dirt out, but it works.mike

take it to tidycar or some company that cleans interiors for a living, some of them offer an ozone treatment that takes the smell out of the car and kills the mold and milldew
