This car looks like it could be a museum piece...
But not with this tired, plain green interior which had
been done years ago.
Now that's more like it! First we chose colors to match
the exterior - two-tone forest green and cypress. In reupholstering the
seats and panels, we wanted to maintain the integrity of the original
stitching design. Cypress piping added extra flair.
We replaced the carpet with a forest green Mercedes Feintuft
Velour. We then made a custom one piece floor mat embroidered with the
car's nickname, "Pistachio."
Remember the rumble seat. This area also needed to be
We reupholstered the rumble seat to match the front
seat. We also recovered the walls and replaced the floor carpet.
We hand made the folding soft top from tan canvas and
trimmed it in green. We then inserted the antique style chrome framed
glass rear window. To match the top, we also hand made custom trunk
and spare tire covers.
Now that is a museum piece!
