    Default 1966 corvette coupe

    I just purchased a 1966 corvette coupe from my dentist who has owned it for 53 years 😊 I am needing advice on catalogs for parts. Thanks

    The 66 needs interior. The seat on driver side is torn & the carpet is really faded. I have been looking at Al Knoch interiors for new carpet & seat covers. Just debating if I should leave it as is with the original interior in it since it’s had the same owner for the past 53 years. Would it hurt the value of the car if I replaced seats , carpet & door panels ? Just needing some advice from the corvette experts �� Thanks

    Al Knoch has been the go to guy for Corvette interiors for years. If the car is original...original engine, trans, etc. going back with original type would be a probably be the way to go. If you are thinking about restomodding it, do what suits you.

    Welcome to the CAC.

    If the interior is in excellent condition but just showing it's age by all means keep it. Since it's torn it will not hurt the car's value by replacing it with a correct interior. Go all the way with new seat foam too and it will look and sit like new.
