Re: [Chrysler300] 1957 300C Leather Seats -Replace leather Seat Covers



Hi, John:

SMS (or $M$) supplied the seat vinyl for my convertible directly to me and the entire interior for my 300E to Gary Goers to turn into seats, etc. Both sets of vinyl and leather were exact matches. With SMS, patience will be a virtue. Please advise if you like their contact information.

Best,
Ron Kurtz

       After 61 years, the leather in our
 1957 300C front seat needs new stitching, new foam and the
 springs need to be repaired. We had hoped to keep our 300 as
 original as possible, but the seats  need to
 be repaired before the stitching gives up.  We took the 300C to the National
 WPC Meet in Tacoma last August 2017 and was awarded the
 President’s Cup for the Best original car. We
 always  wondered if we should replace the
 leather seats in both the front and back. Our local car club
 friends said to leave it all original.Since Gary Goers is no longer able
 to do the leather seats, we went to our local upholstery
 shop and asked them  about sowing up the front
 seat, adding new foam and fixing the springs. They said the
 leather is too hard and brittle and almost impossible to
 stitch. They suggested we replace the leather. I guess it is
 about time to do that.   I asked the Beaverton Auto
 Upholstery owner to call Legendary as we wanted a leather
 that matched the original Beige leather.
  “Rich” at Legendary  sent a
 sample to Beaverton Auto Upholstery and said the cost is
 about $3,000.00 for both seats. Legendary said it would take
 4 to 8 weeks to get them done.   My concern is whether the color
 and thickness of the leather from Legendary is comparable to
 that used by Gary.  Also, we plan to replace the
 Black, loop-pile type carpet including the vinyl heel pad.
   Beaverton Upholstery said the rest
 of the interior is in excellent condition including the
 Vinyl seat backs, door panels and head liner.  Legendary supplied the front seat
 upholstery for our1970 300 Convertible in December 2015
 which we are very pleased with.   We would like to drive our 300 to
 the Spring Meet, May 14-18, at Rohnert Park in
 California..  Do you have any thoughts or
 suggestions?  John & Arlys
