  • Has anyone seen this seat back?

    I saw this picture on Facebook and noticed the Thunderbird script in the seat back.

      Yes, I saw this once on a 2002 in a car show about six years ago. I tried to catch the owner, but he was never at his car. I always look at the two tone black and red interior cars. As I have always wanted one.

        The current owner said it is embroidered and was on the seats when she bought the car. The car is currently in Alabama.

          Looks like a previous owner had it customized. Seat covers do come off.

              Tommy the only source I know that has them is LA Phil. I believe they're the nudo leather. Better brace yourself for sticker shock.

                The white and black seats did not come in nudo leather as that color combination was not available in 2002.

                  Might be less costly to have an upholstery shop make a set. The Thunderbird script done in red would go nicely on the Tommymobile.

                    From what I see, Phil is not a source at this time. I have seen several pieces of the black and white covers on Ebay, but only for the 2004. Seams on the inserts run vertical on the 2004 and 2005. Only a few 2005 Inca Golds came with the black and white interior. Talking about a needle in a haystack, I have a set from a wrecked Inca Gold in my VMG. I have a full set of saddle 2003 covers, partial set of 2002 red and black, and lacking one piece of a full Nieman Marcus.

                      I would try Katzkin. They made up a custom set for my 2007 mustang years ago . The seats in the T Bird (IMO)look identical to the mustang of that year

                        If your current seats are not ripped or torn, is it possible to change their color with a dye?

                          Just curious, if that's a seat back... what's the area facing the rear called?

                              That is the back of the seat back. You are welcome for me clearing that up.
