I personally think this must be about the last opportunity to purchase an original leather interior of this quality. Although I am happy to be proven wrong.

The rear seat base and back is in stunning condition. All four attachment studs to the rear seat back are present and unbroken. Try removing the two situated in the wheel arches without breaking them. Good luck!

The rear side cards are not ripped or shrivelled. As perfect as you'll find. The front door cards with period speakers stand close scrutiny too. As good as you'll find I would say. If you prefer door cards without speakers, I have a pair you can have instead.

I hesitate to say the passenger front seat is perfect (as I have a stunning original one I shall be selling separately) but it has great leather, detail, and profile. The driver's seat back is perfect, the base is lightly patinated from use.

Similar to looking at rechromed door handles off the car, you can pick up areas of imperfection (it is 50 year old leather which I have chosen not to fill - not that it needed it - nor over restore, resulting in loss of leather grain and general patination), but wrapped up inside a car with new carpets I believe would look stunning. More than that, a proper Jensen interior which I think could only be matched by a high end retrim toward £10k.


I have seat runners. I also have a pair of extremely nice chrome seat hinges for an additional £200. Although the ones on the seats in the pictures are acceptable.

Should anyone be interested, I would want you to view the seats before buying.

Pictures to follow.

Lovely job there Stu. Excellent attention to detail - and well presented. If I was in the market I'd snap your hand off = a few hours with the spanners and you'd have a beautifully original interior all installed, ready to go.

Good luck with the sale.

Looks lovely Stu and certainly a bargin, I would much prefer this to a new retrimmed set.
