Does anyone have a front bottom seat upholstery for a 1958 Chrysler 300-D coupe I can borrow/buy/trade for?

I have the stock natural tan leather/vinyl front & rear seats from my 300-D at Legendary Interiors, who will be using my pieces as a pattern for developing a reproduction kit. However, my front bottom cushion is from a Windsor 2dr and not at all useful for this purpose. They need an original bottom seat upholstery, without any panels replaced to use as a pattern.

Once they have all stock pieces in hand, they will take approximately 12 months to have this product in their catalog. Projected pricing is same as their 1957 300-C interior kit. I have the links for only the coupe kits below, but they do the convertible rear bench also.

Thanks.

I probably do. Any benefit to letting them borrow it and tear it apart at the seams? Does it have to be an original cover or can it be a repro?

Just curious,
How are shrunken, brittle & split original over 60 year old seat covers usable as patterns??
Seems to me one would also need an original seat cushion assembly w/padding and foam.

The contact person I spoke to at Legendary accepted the task using my old and dry pieces. I left them complete seats, though the bottom front I provided them is a from a Windsor hardtop. The previous owner used the 300D seatbacks on the Windsor bottom.

The 1957 seats have a different pattern but the bare frames and the padding are the same or extremely close.

The Legendary techs will be sandblasting and painting my seat frames at an extra cost to me and installing the new upholstery. They are not otherwise giving me special pricing.

They requested an original seat bottom. I am not sure if they will cutting up what I gave them - in the condition they were in, it did not matter to me what happened to them.
