I talked to Le Barron Boney and they told that it will take them a few months.
I have ordered from them before and they make high quality at an affordable price (at least to offers I got here in Germany).

If they have the patterns everybody that has a 61 Fleetwood could then order seat covers that either match the original or come in any color combination he or she wants. Seat cover kits you can put on yourself.

I would like to do this as soon as someone is ready to do this ...

I sent a request to them seeking information.  I will let you know if this is something I want to do.

Attached you will find a presentation I sent them giving some background information on my car and my desires.

Do keep in mind that the patterns differed, depending on which fabric was used. If Lebaron Bonney has one pattern for one type of cloth, it will be different if you specify a different cloth.

I talked to Phill at Le Baroon Bonney.
Please forward your e-mail again to him at: pmcintyre@lebaronbonney.com

Please refer to the discussion he had with me (Timo).

Thanks so much!

@Timo 

I received the material samples for your car.  It looks like SMS fabric prices went up from when I requested mine.

When I get the rest of my house items taken care of for the winter I will begin stripping my seats to make patterns.   I will use these patterns and make a test seat cover in leather or vinyl. If the test turns out nice great. If I need to make adjustments it will let me know.

If you decide to have me make your seat covers you will be able to see a sample before we invest any money.  I will give you a materials list that you can order and send to me.

Please take a look at your stitching. See if you can notice what color it is.  Unfortunately it was nylon thread. And nylon fades bad. I will need to search for the appropriate thread color. It should be Tex135 size.  Normally I can purchase individual spoils of good thread from a company called Coats.

I found the time of o take the back off my seat and get it into the basement. Even in two pieces it is extremely heavy.

The cover is very complex. I will need to make a detailed assembly sequence  PowerPoint. There are a few brackets that get attached through the cover.

I blew this out as much as I could. I hope the smell does not stink up my house to much.

Interesting note the carpet is part of the seat bottom. The seat back panel is two separate pieces.
