Legendary Interiors. Buy them direct from Legendary but wait till December when they have best sale of the year. Might be having a Labor day sale but won't be as good as the end of year prices. Think the end of year sale is 20 or 25% off.

I restore front and rear arm rests. I have some that I could restore. I also have kick panels. Does you car need A/C panels? Non A/C panels are different. I prefer the non assembled panels so that I can fit the panels to the car when I assemble them.

Send your armrests to Dan. That way you will basically have brand new original arm rests. Some of the repo stuff uses plastic for the arm rest base plates.

I just went through their catalog and there is nothing for 4 doors? I'm assuming the OP is asking about a sedan..

I was about to order all my 4 door stuff from Summitracing using PUI Interiors..

Re: I need new Interior

I recently got and installed a set of Legendary unassembled door panels and initially thought they did not fit my 70 El Camino. The thick door panel card material at the top did not reach the holes in the original top rails and I was about to return the panels to Legendary. This would have restarted a three month wait for a new set and I really didn't want to wait again.

But then I got to thinking. I used a razor knife to slightly enlarge the pre-cut slots in the back of the panels where the door panel metal "pins" slide into. This quarter inch enlargement was cut towards the bottom of the door panel which in turn allowed the door panel to slide upwards enough for the top edge to reach the holes in the top rails.

I can't precisely assign blame here but it all got resolved. Did Legendary cut their holes in the wrong place? Did the Fisher body people drill their door panel mounting holes in the wrong place? Or was it a little of both? My point here is that even the cherished Legendary door panels could take a little work to get them to fit correctly.


But they are absolutely gorgeous to look at.

Agree. I've heard where you have to slightly modify anyone's panels.

Legendary uses the best materials and they cost a little more but are worth it.

I wouldn't wait till December. Tell them that you were thinking about waiting and I'm sure they will cut you a deal to order now.

I got a complete white interior for my 67 vert from them. Can't wait to get it installed.
