    Looking for rear bench seat

    Post  shnalla on Mon Nov 09, 2015 8:05 am

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a rear bench seat for my '84 Caprice Wagon.
    Currently my Wagon has a blue vinyl installed and it is the only part that is not original to the car.


    I'm looking for the correct bench seat in "Fern Gray" color.

    If anyone got it, and is OK to send it to France, please let me know !

    In case you can't find one, are there any upholsterers in your area? If I had something like that, I'd simply take it to my upholsterer and have it redone in the correct cloth or at least something very close if the correct cloth could not be obtained. It's definitely going to be a tough find. Can you post a picture of your seat back looking directly at it so I can see the pattern and cloth? I'll keep an eye out for you.

    Pshew!! a rear seat bottom would cost a small fortune to ship!

    Original Auto Interiors should have some NOS fabric. http://originalauto.com/
    I'm pretty sure they ship worldwide.

    Yes there are upholsterers, but my guess is that it will cost an arm and a leg!
    Thank you for your help, I will take a picture soon!
