    Trying to find foam core replacement that will fit the front bucket seats in my 66 Monaco Convertible.
    Canadian cars came with the 66 Sport Fury interior. I can find replacement foam for other years and models but not for my 66. Any help tracking down a supplier/seller would be much appreciated. Long time ago I had got the seat skins from year one when they did C Bodies.
    Thanks Earle

    You have been a member here for almost 5 years, and this is the first we hear from you? Pictures please.

    You may want to see if you can get measurements for Legendary for their seat foam...

    To my knowledge the seat foam for 66 C body buckets is not reproduced at this time unfortunately. A good upholsterer can hand make them though, gluing bits on and shaping them with an electric carving knife.

    Edit...

    Say what???

    Wow, those must be quite new to the marketplace, as I'd not seen them before.

    Thanks for the link @rapidtrans

    In the seat cushion in particular, what's the main difference in the '65 seat foam and the '66-'68 foam items? Size? Just concerned with the seat cushion only. I would suspect the seat back foam could be done by a good trim shop rather than needing a repro item? Perhaps similar with the seat cushion, too? I don't recall either one being that "special" when compared to others, but I could be wrong in the suspicion of the seat cushion foam being the same from '65-'68 on C-body vehicles in particular.

    Just curious,

    From my observations the 65 seat foam upper cushions are definitely more squared off (and possibly shorter) than the 66 versions.

    Thanks , will pock them again for measurements. Had just measured my brothers 68 Monaco as ref also to see what is closer.
    As to my beast, when I got it, I rebuilt the power train; diff, trans, springs etc. Got floor pans an trunk from parts car.
    Then got a Challenger driver....5 years later it ended up being restored and I'm now back at the convertibles undercarriage after
    it had been found in the bush for along time.
