Leather upholstery

Every once in a while I see a '68 mustang advertised on ebay as having "leather seats". When I look at the pics it always looks to me like the upholstery is vinyl. Was leather upholstery an option on '68 stangs? Even if it wasn't does anyone know if someone makes aftermarket leather seat upholstery for '68 stangs that match the original pattern? Does anyone have leather upholstery in their car?

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

there is a option when selling a car on ebay for leather seats. I think people have no clue and just think they are leather. There was no option for leather in a Mustang.

there are companies that make leather covers, maybe Arlie knows about them?

I stumbled across a company once when I was looking for deluxe comfortweave aqua seat covers, so there is at least one out there but I don't know if I could find that site again.

I don't know about everyone else but, I sure wouldn't want leather. I'll just stick my good old fashion vinyl. Besides, either of them will cause you to sweat pretty good. I put some of those bead covers on both my cars and they really supprised me. Didn't think they would be that comfortable but, they work pretty good and allow for air flow behind your back and bottom area.

Here is a link to Calif Girl`s gallery photo of her upholstery. I think what she had done is a great idea.

Thx for the input. I found a site that sells leather upholstery for vintage mustangs. For your reference...

And I agree the cloth seats look very nice as well.

Intersting. For carpet they have cut pile, nylon loop, and 80/20 loop.

Anyone know which is original and/or the best looking?
