I could only wish my convertible[57 Dodge Mayfair] was at this stage. The interior of your car looks almost original from what I see in the pics, which prompts the my question of who the supplier for the cloth inserts and vinyl are and availability. As far as I can tell they look as close as you can get. Your interior package matches my 57 D500 2DR HDTP.If you could post that info here would be great or feel free to pm me.My plan is to upgrade to swivel buckets also and at that time perhaps do both front and back seats. I certainly have a appreciation for the quality of workmanship to say the least
