It's a great sewing machine for home use, but it would be pretty limited doing a car interior. This machine would be close to or older than 50 years old. It would need to be in really good condition to be worth $225.

Look for an industrial compound feed walking foot machine. A Singer 111W or 211 or one of their clones would be more what you're looking for.

I just picked up a 201-2 with a table for $35 - yes, thirty five dollars. Great machine but it will never handle sew foam.
Like Dan said, go for the 111W or one of its clones.
