Telephone Legendary Auto Interiors today...
"Thanks for calling Legendary Auto Interiors, this is Chris speaking".
Hello, Chris, I have several questions for you regarding seat foams, is that ok?
He replies, "sure".
And away we go......
1) Q. Do you know what a Strato seat is?
2) Q. Do you know what a Strato Bench seat is?
3) Q. Do you carry seat foam for a Strato Bench seat?
A. "No. You would need to use high density foam, and construct a base".
4) Q. Well, I need seat foam for a 1967 Strato Bench seat for a Riviera, could I use the foam backs
of the Strato Bucket seat foams you sell?
A. Yes, but they are only sold in sets, one back and one Strato Bucket base foam per kit,
we don't break sets"
5) Q. Okay, so I could purchase TWO sets for Strato Bucket, and use just the backs, and construct a
seat base foam from High Density foam?
6) Q. I see several different auto restoration places sell seat foam, at different prices, is there a difference
A. "Yes, we sell ACI foams, the best in the industry, cheaper foams are just that".
Okay, well that sounds great, I will call back shortly, with my credit card info.
10 minutes later...I call back...
Is Chris there? "Yes, he's coming in now, wish to wait a minute?
I answer, Yes.
"Hello, this is Chris"..
Hey Chris we just spoke regarding Strato Bench seat foam, and I wish to place an order...
"Ok, fine, what year, make model of vehicle? I say, umm, we just spoke I need 2 sets of Strato Bucket seat foams.
I'm already getting worried now.....but, continue...
It's for 1967 Buick Riviera, with Strato Bench, remember?
"Chris" states, "closest I have is Skylark, 1967".
I say, well, Im not sure what a Skylark uses, but I DO KNOW a 1967 GTO came with Strato Buckets,
so how about 2 sets of seat foams for THOSE SEATS? Strato Buckets?
"Chris" questions, why would you say GTO, when you have a Buick? I say it really does not matter what vehicle we're
talking about, how about 2 sets of seat foams for a 1967 Strato Bucket seat?
"Chris" replies, "Riviera has a center arm rest, and seat backs are different than Strato Buckets.
Strato bucket seat foams won't work".
I tell "Chris" the backs I have now on my Strato Bench CAME from a 1967 GTO, and are installed, with armrest in
place, and it all fits fine. Just need new foams. And, I've disassembled enough Strato seats to become quite
familiar with them.
"Chris" says, seat backs are different, then painful dead air on the line.
I then question, so you don't have foam for my seats? He replies "nope". I say, well, allright, thank you,
"Chris" replies "bye".
wow.. ....Did I miss something?
Man, the mere mention of Buick while ordering seems to be the kiss of death! At least my Corvettes are easy to
