Legendary look like the original and wear like the original...PUI look 2-dimensional an are no comparison. If I bought a car with brand new PUI interior, I would factor in the cost of tearing it out and replacing it with Legendary. There simply is no comparison.

I am in the process of installing Legendary covers on my 68 seats.
Beautiful parts.

There's Legendary and then there's "all the rest" --- no comparison.

Exactly what I'm researching now...very helpful!

I would assume that holds true for the interior door panels as well?

Glad i caught this, I was about to order PUI panels. Guess I'll go with legendary despite the lack of molding and higher price.

Hi Guys, I bought pui front & rear bench covers for a 67 tempest, (they were the only ones offered for the front bench ) I am very happy with them and they appear to be very good copies of the originals, ( not the flat 2 dimensional type that appear to have the pleats drawn on ) so if legandary covers are better ........ 1 thing i will say is I would consider getting all new foam and making sure the springs are tight, if going through the hassle of new seats. From what I found pui cost about 2/3rds of the legendary, Also the only negative with the pui seem to be slightly loose fitting and I had to add some generic foam to my original foam, ( my original could have been used up ? ) good luck with your project ff.

Legendary is a much better product.......I have heard that PUI has finally re-tooled and is now offering an excellent product.....BEWARE: legendary and PUI colors don't usually match each other....so pick one or the other!! Eric
