I´m searching for a rear seat and the side-panels for my 1958 convertible

Which years do I have to narrow my search to?

I will have it reupholstered so the fabric doesn't matter?



Kind Regards

Not sure about the side panels but I think a seat from a 58-64 Cabrio will fit. Best place to look is the Samba.

OK, thanks.

Shipping will probably starve me if I find one "over there" :D
I came across one in Sweden that is for 1972 beetle but I wasn´t very hopefull that it would fit my car, And maybe there is on guy that might have a one for a 1969...

Get some pictures of the 72 and 69 seats - I can make some comparison photos of my 58 seat if you want.

That would be super JD!

BTW what colour is your car, Mine is black with VIN 1 616 205 and I'm trying to figure out how the interior is supposed to look like, all I know is that car is L 41 Black and interior is "M 556 Upholstery leatherette Red " according to birthcertificate

Mine´s also L41 with red leatherette interior.

Cabrio back seats are supposed to be very hard to find. You may jus have to take what you can get.

It's not complete, it's only the back rest, but it's a start...

Good luck in your hunt, rear seats for early convertibles are pretty hard to find...
