Hello I really don't want to give you a number here, as it depends on if you want to restore with leather or cloth and exactly how trashed the car is. For example, are you going to replace the seats, or just the covers? This would be a good place to start spec'ing out what you might want to do: http://www.artscorvetteparts.com/ I hope this helps!

I have replaced my seats, carpet and center console pieces. Very easy to find everything you need online via google search. Most part places have entire "molded" carpet sets etc and very easy to install. I saved some money by shopping Ebay as well. I found orignal parts there as well, in some cases (seats) at substantially lower prices.

I installed a completely new leather interior and dash, cost was around $1,300.00 and I did it myself, is not a perfect job but looks decent
