I was wondering If anyone used Clarks to redo their bench seat for their Rampside. I'm almost to the point and have to decide to try original style of ?

I have yet to inquire about the cost from a Clarks's

I have installed a few Fc seat covers from Clarks. The quality and fit is excellent. They can be installed yourself after rebuilding the cushions and repairing any broken springs.
The Clarks front seat cover in my Greenbrier is 12 years old. It is holding up very well. No tears or seporations. I highly recommend the Clarks seat covers.

Clark's covers are excellent, my wife and I installed ours in an afternoon. One of our club members, in the custom auto and marine upholstery business, highly recommends using Clark's if the customer wants to stay original.

I don't know how much of a purist you are or not.
If you want the original fabric for your '63,Clarks is the ONLY place to go.
I've ordered '61 and '62 correct FC covers. Couldn't be happier with both sets.

It's gonna set you back $300+ for your bench.

I called Clark's this afternoon. They are sending samples to choose from. I try as much as possible to keep it pure

I've got some samples coming - really wish Clark's had color pics of all patterns available. This is what goes in my FC:

Thinking about having them stitch this seat, with my fabric though:

Anyone know of a collection of OEM style upholstery I can peruse? Google is hit and miss . . .

SMS Auto Fabrics in Canby, OR has anything you could want. Clark's sources a lot of fabric and vinyl from them.

Clarks is the place. My 63 Rampside and my 64 Corvan both have their (Clarks) original upholstery. It was easier for me to have Steve and Rita Gongora (House of Covers in Albuquerque) do the work. I dropped off the stuff and picked them back up a week later. All around a very nice product and a nice job. Rampside was about 12 years ago and Corvan was 6 years ago. Both look great.
