    My 79 came with a seat upholstery that I've only ever seen in one other car and no one that I can find sells it. It's blue in color and the middle inserts look kind of like a plaid design. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to get new seat covers?

    Look Up SMS at smsautofabrics.com. They will send you free samples. What you have is 24B - Blue Cloth standard. Your door panels are vinyl, correct? I have never seen these reproduced. I've seen a plain Jane Camaro for sale in Wisconsin on Craigslist with this interior in mint condition.

    Nice car, but wrong interior. Here is the correct interior:

    The blue interior at the lower left.

    SMS fabrics used to have that 24B cloth, in fact, I ordered a bunch from them years ago. Might be worth a shot to see if they still have it or reproduced it.

    It's honestly hard for me to tell the difference between the two. How can you tell?
