Cars have always been a daily part of our lives. We judge people on what they drive, and how they take care of it. When witnessing the effort put into restoring or maintaining classic vehicles, we can’t help but be impressed by their outward appearance and functionality. The exterior isn’t the only factor either. Well-maintained classic interior upholstery is the cherry on top. If you’re looking to add another classic car to your collection or looking to restore one you already own, here is our list of must-have classic cars.
1953-1962 Chevy Corvette
Perhaps the most collected classic car in the USA, a Chevrolet Corvette is anything but a rare sight. These stylish cars are perfect for anyone looking to make a statement. They also open the door for clubs, car shows, and conversations where car enthusiasts can share their affection for the vehicle together. Because of its popularity, many people opt for modern upholstery to better maintain their vehicle’s interior and add an element of uniqueness.
1961 Jaguar E-Type
Another iconic vehicle among enthusiasts. With its long front exterior and a convertible roof, this vehicle screams a long drive into the sunset with your lover. The fluid design of this car has caught the eye of many car design aficionados wanting to reupholster and restore it to its glory days. The Jaguar E-type is a perfect mix of masculinity and femininity with its sleek bullet design and sports car horsepower.
1935 Ford Pickup
Notably an antique vehicle, the 1935 Ford Pickup is the most popular classic car in Idaho. A well-maintained one will surely cause your head to turn. Like many classic or antique cars, they will need to be reupholstered and customized. The great thing about this truck is that there is so much history behind it. Farmers and construction workers would commonly use this vehicle since pickups were not very popular for everyday commute in 1935. You may see owners of these vehicles holding onto this history by keeping the mechanical brakes and or replicating the original color scheme of the exterior body and interior upholstery.
1969 Ford Mustang
How could we not mention a Ford Mustang? With rumors of being the “ultimate classic car," the Ford Mustang has its fair share of movie highlights and continues to be a popular ride among collectors. This muscle car is a piece of American history that has a timeless look and sound. You have to appreciate the people that work hard to maintain these cars. More so, these have surged in popularity among younger people for being the featured car in the movie John Wick. With proper classic auto upholstery and detailing, the 1969 ford mustang is sure to make anyone jealous.
1970 Chevy Camaro
More comfortable than its predecessors, the 1970 Chevrolet Camaro is another muscle car in our list of must-haves. In the 1970s, Strato bucket seats were the new hot thing to grace car interiors. Most having an all-black interior with vinyl upholstery and optional console materials, these beauties were a sight for sore eyes. The 1970s saw a redesign mimicking European muscle cars, instead of the classic “coke-bottle” design of the 60s. Across the board, Camaros are still an attractive car for many. Some enthusiasts wouldn’t choose to purchase any later versions of the Camaro due to the Environmental Protection Agency cracking down on emission standards, thus causing performance changes in later versions.
You could say this list was quite diverse but any one of these vehicles would be quite the collection piece. Nothing sticking out to you yet? Regardless of your own personal taste and style, there is a classic car out there that suits you. The look and sound of a classic vehicle that has been restored would make anyone want to reverse the clock so they can buy one too. With the proper detailing and upholstery, you’ll be reliving your best days in a classic car of your own.
