Description of Work:
I had Village Upholstery recover the front buckets and rear bench seats of my 1963 Ford Thunderbird in the stock pattern with pearl white inserts and metallic blue bolsters. The all-new covers, driver's seat bottom, and bucket seat backs were made by hand.
When I attended car shows and saw interiors I liked, I talked to the owners about where the work was done. One company always stood out: Village Upholstery. I contacted Larry Hankins, the owner, and set up an appointment. He looked over my car, and we discussed in great detail what I wanted done.
Larry was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and was very helpful in guiding me through the process and choosing the right materials, patterns and designs for my car — right down to the color of the thread!
A few short days later, my seats were done, and I honestly was blown away by the quality, detail and finish of these seats! I have a lot of time, effort and money invested into this car, having redone the drivetrain, paint, body, chassis and electrical to show standards — but the upholstery is head and shoulders above everything else I've done!
