New upholstery
« on: December 05, 2012, 04:01:03 PM »
I called an upholstery to get a quote on fixing my 1977 Mercury Bobcat's front seats.  He said my best bet would be to by a kit from Dallas Mustang.  I went to the website and found some high back covers that look like they would fit.

However, when I called the store the guy said he had nothing for a Pinto.

Here is the link.... What are the chance that these would fit...with professional installation.

Thanks.....Wal ter

Anyone know if those TMI seats will fit a 1977 Bobcat??

They look the same.

I also found these seats from a 1971 Cougar.  They look similar.  Could these be made to work?

Only $203 a piece.   :D
