William is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Try stock interiors.com I used one of theirs several years ago and took it and the seat frame to my local upholstery shop and had them put it all together.

I put 89 bench seat with fold down center in my 65. ordered kit through rock auto, which was the best price I could find.
Depending on year and what type of seat, will determine how difficult it would be.
This was cut, sewn to factory specs and came with hog ring tool and rings.
Easy to put on. only difficult piece was center armrest fold down, as it was a very tight fit.

daveengelson has a good reputation on FTE.daveengelson has a good reputation on FTE.daveengelson has a good reputation on FTE.
Salvaged later model seat from wrecking yard and requested free samples from SMS; imagine majority of the supplier's would provide free samples. In the meantime got a few quotes on cost and happened upon shop who used the same supplier and applies his discount to the cost of his installation. Very pleased with results. Anyhow food for thought.

Recall member's posting pic's of their upholstery jobs and looked very good; suggest run 'advanced search' on topic and narrow to the 61-66 forum.
