I am planning to have my '59 Dodge re-upholstered, but do not have teh riginal seat covers (they were re-upholstered years ago by a previous owner who changed the pattern).

I'd like to restore it to original. I can get the materials, and I have photos of other cars showing what it is supposed to look like, but the upholstere would have to guess at the sizes of the various sections of cloth vonyl.

Does anyone have patterns or mesurements, or a car with original style upholstery they would be willing to measure?  I could offer a modest fee for your service.

The pic below shows the pattern I am after.  I think they called it the custom coronet (aka "Snowflake") interior.  My car also has the swivel seats as shown below.

Thanks and Regards,

Lou

I bet someone here can measure their seat for you. a few numbers and arrows on your pictures should be all you need. I call that pattern 'puppy paw'. No snowflakes for me. Finding vinyl with lines like that will be difficult. If you find some , please let me know, my 58 Belvedere uses it horizontally. Marc.

mstrug: I ordered it from SMS. They emboss the lines in the standard vinyl as needed.  Told me they might already have some on hand  We'll see how that goes.

Thanks, Serge.  I wish I had a custom royal - your work/info would make it easier!

Thanks! Let us know how long it takes. We wonder if they finally got their act together since the purchase of Original Auto Interiors.

I placed my order a couple weeks ago, and have had no correspondence since, so we'll see how it goes. Many of these suppliers/vendors are busy, even mid season (I got a quote of 14 weeks to do a radio conversion, for example).

Meanwhile...still no one out there with a Coronet willing to send upholstery pattern measurements ? NOoOoOoo one ? :-)

Here a pattern sheet DODGE (1959) I worked out one day. Your pattern may-be Nr. 91031.

Hope to help you partly.  - SERGE -

I was lucky (to a point) when I did my dodge in that I had remnants to work off, The front seat I did to match the rear seat. The front seat was a Plymouth seat, so the pattern was different

Anyway, as making a proper pattern generally will destroy the seat cover, perhaps your going to have to buy a seat? there are so many little
facets to the seats construction that without an old seat cover to go off at hand, it wont be correct anyway

As I was saying about my front seat, I had to scale what the seat was going to look like as the front seat is/was smaller than the rear

I'd prefer not to go as far as buying a seat.  I'd rather than just get as close as possible to the original pattern with some measurements, and to figure out if the upholstery in these photos is correct (piping location & color).

I received my SMS upholstery order today!  Alas, I still do not have the upholstery pattern/measurements, so I can't get an upholsterer to work on the car. My facebook posting got some comments, but no measurements yet. :-(

Interior patterns are the hardest to figure out because it's very rare for anyone to have an original interior still intact. But I agree that someone on here should know, it's just a matter of time for them to read your post. Good luck with the search.

Good plan. However, I don't know if you ever said which model of 59 Dodge you had, i.e. Coronet, Royal or Custom Royal, or body style, i.e. sedan or 2dr hardtop, etc. This info is important because there wasn't just one interior design.

Custom Royal 4 dr hardtop:



Royal:



Coronet (I see piping by the way):



This image came from the video link (which has lots of good info when he sticks the camera inside the car):

I was under the impression SMS also did covers already sewn up ready to install.. they do door panels. I did talk to someone on the phone and he left me with the impression I could get covers ready to go. I could be wrong....

When I talked to SMS last year they said "Yes we do complete seats". (I'm all happy) "You'll have to send us your existing factory seat coverings so we make the patterns for the new covers". (I am all sad )
