Correct Pattern for Front Seat Upholstery
« on: April 14, 2021, 08:10:29 PM »
What is the correct pattern for the inserts for the upholstery for bucket seats of a 1968 Shelby GT500 Fastback?  Is it comfort weave, Kiwi, or something else? Attached is a photo of what I have for upholstery in the back seat.

The Marti report for my car states that my car came with “Black Knitted Décor Bucket Seats”

Information from the Branda Catalog regarding 68 Shelby upholstery is also attached.

It is my understanding that hardtops got comfort weave, and convertibles got vinyl, with some exceptions for very early cars.  What do others say?

I will be exchanging my covers for comfort weave.  Thanks for all for your help.  Lauran
