All new upholstery of leather and MB Tex vinyl
The photo below shows the car in 1983, when I bought it. It had an original interior, with the exception of the early
70's Chevy seat fabric. Jack Davis owner of Generations Upholstery, in San Jose, did the new interior in a combination
of leather and Mercedes vinyl. Generations, which is now out of business, was a place where quality was the most
important product. The work they did was exceptional. Buying from Matt at Re-Originals was also a pleasure. He's
got all the hard-to-find big and little trim pieces. He's also got full replacement interiors, though I had mine custom made.
The fake wood on my dash was shot and I could not find a good original dash anywhere, so Jack reinforced the old one
with fiberglass and upholstered it with leather. Must say, the original never looked as good as the leather does now.
On the left is the mostly original Alfa interior, as I bought it in 1983. You'll note in this photo and the one above that there is something on the column, below the steering wheel. That's an original steering wheel lock that I still use today.
In photos above and below you can also see that I've added an electronic tach on top of the steering column. That was done in the 1980's, because it's much more accurate than the mechanical tach. I also added a shift light when the 2L motor went, to remind me not to overdo it when driving ... enthusiastically.
