Hello with my Great Grandfather's 1967 Chevy Bel A

Morning-

Wanted to introduce myself! My name is Mitch and I recently obtained my Great Grandfathers Bel Air Sedan . Overall it is in decent condition, but there are a few questions that I have. Does anyone know where I could potentially get NOS seat fabric for the interior. I am in Green Bay, WI, and I have been to a number of interior restoration shops and no one seems to me able to find the fabric. Also, is there anyone in the WI area that has recommendations of service shops, or restoration business? It's in nice shape, but there are a few things I'd like to restore on it. Cheers

Welcome to the Team!

If you could find NOS parts a half century after it was made it would cost more than the car is worth. I don't know if the cloth pattern is different in the Bel Air (such as the Fleur de Lys, was used only in the Caprice model, not the Impala and the Bel Air is an up trim Biscayne), but there are new reproduction seat covers made for the Impala in most parts houses.

The Biscayne (Bel Air) was the last full size car to be considered to be a hot rod when equipped the optional 435 horse 427 and a four speed. After that the lighter Chevelle and the brand new for 1967 Camaro where pushed by Chevy as the factory standard bearers in drag racing. The Biscayne made a great sleeper, which is why I repurposed my four door 1985 Impala with a 582 cube big block under the hood as a street car. No one suspected a thing until it was far too late.

That NOS seat fabric may not be that difficult to find. Try these companies:
--> CARS, Inc
--> SMS Auto Fabrics

Good Luck!
