Default Kiwi interior

For sale is my beloved and super rare Nappa Kiwi leather interior. I have put a ton of time and love into this interior to restore it (except for drivers seat) to the condition it is in now. I planned on having this in my car forever until the opportunity came for me to purchase a full OE CSL interior which will kick off my long process of converting my car to as full CSL as possible. This sale is to fund that build.

The seats were not in very good shape when I purchased them but I used a leather restoration kit from Furniture Clinic (miles better than leatherique) to restore them to almost factory new. All seats have been done except for the driver's seat as I used a Status Ring racing seat instead. I will include the rest of the Furniture Clinic kit with the sale and that will give you everything you need to easily bring the driver's seat up to the same quality as the rest of the interior. F.C. have videos on their site on how the kit works but I will be happy to show you my process as well so you can repeat my results. Pics can't do this color justice as it looks absolutely incredible. I get complements on it all the time and you will never, ever see another one.

Given that these don't come for sale very often and taking the condition of the driver's seat into account I am asking $1350 OBO (SOLD)

State College, PA area


I would rate the passenger seat, door cards, arm pads and headrests near perfect (zero bolster wear) 9.5/10








The seat backs I would rate 8.5/10

The seat bottom I would rate 8/10



The driver seat is rough (see pics) but I think you can tell from how the rest came out that it can be brought back to life quite easily with the included kit.





Or... you could do what I did and just run a racing seat

Nice interior. I wonder what this would look like on an AW car.

How come you don't restore the drivers seat? I'm sure you could demand a higher price then.

I already have an OE CSL interior paid for and on the way. At this point I'm just trying to make some my money back as quick as possible. My loss is someone's gain.

I will say that for the right price, I would consider finishing the the driver's seat as well. Looking to move this set rather quickly and move on to a new project though.

Imola is a bad idea with LSB. Use a color wheel when picking colors.
