Front Seats 1965 GTo

Just bought a 65 GTO and although the seats are OK, they need some TLC. There are some tears in the backs and the springs are (worn) sprung. I would like to have the seats re-sprung and replace the vinyl with leather. Not sure what I'll do with the back seats and rear back rest as they are in good condition. I have a new carpet kit that I would install if I can find a nice leather seat re-upholsterer. Any help?

Thanks,
ZRSTEVE

leather? hell no. even if they did a nice job it would bring the value of the car down. have it re-done with the correct reproduction morokahyde vinyl. stock '64 n '65 interiors in my opinion are very nice.

+1 the legendary seat covers are very good reproductions and the 65' pattern with the angled pleats and arrow head logo are IMO the sharpest stock interior of the day

Seeing this is the modern goat section some '05 seats would be extremely comfortable and look great.
