Upholstery components are taking 6 - 9 months to ship.
When ordering interior seat kits from us there is no need for you to send in a sample for us to match. We have the original "Color-Upholstery Selection" binders found at the Mercury dealership in the day. These binders have actual pieces of the vinyl, leather and cloth used in the Cougars originally. These binders (or showroom albums) were used by the salesmen to assist in selecting paint and interior combinations on their new Mercury. We use the ordering codes in the binder that coincide with what you will find on your driver door data tag and what you will see on your www.martiauto.com report. It may sound like overkill but we prefer to have every new set of interior from our suppliers sent to us first so we can match it directly to our dealer binders and then put them next to our original low mileage sets we keep on hand. We take this extra step to ensure they are dimensionally correct and the correct size of piping is used, correct colors and quality is up to our standards. Correct Cougar interior kits matter to us and they do not come easy. We take pride in these kits and want you to be able to take pride in them for many years to come. When we see your Cougar at a show we want to be able to show others and say "Look! This interior kit came from us, pretty nice isn't it?" We HATE selling "close enough kits". If our suppliers cannot come up with good matches or NOS original materials we would rather lose the sale than have your Cougar sport our incorrect interior for years to come.
*NOTE* The 1969 standard interior was not available in the convertible, Eliminator or bench seat models.
