Restoration Parts for 85 Caprice Sign In

Does anyone know a good place to find interior restoration parts for an 85 Caprice, reproduction or original.
The interior is all grey now and i'm looking to swap it out for a black interior.

A mainstay is/was www.HemmingsMotorNews.com

Black is easy as you can dye plastic, vinyl even fabric and leather,

I've been through Hemmings and there isn't much there, it's an odd year and model to find parts for, it's only an 85 so in most circles it's not a classic yet. Restoration/replica parts for her are almost non-existent. GM doesn't have anything for it anymore, JC Whitney's selection is very very slim, and as everybody knows junkyard parts are totally hit or miss.

JC Whitney probably isn't the place. Try upholstery shops nearby you that take on antique and classics and ask around for car clubs.

You may need to buy a whole junk car?

You are a hoot RT! I've done up some mid age cars to older ones and the older ones were easier! Most not so special but memories restored.

Let LINCOLNS live forever..............



Go ahead and count - there are 64 sides to that Lincoln applique!

Trivia? Never heard of itCool
