 I think the white seats are wrong, for the rest of the interior.

Then someone jumps in who knows car in last post and says seats should be blue.... Makes sense

Hi guys. This 71 Lemans is a friends car. It is nice. The seats front and rear should be blue.


 Why wouldn't he say that?  Why wouldn't he have changed the seat covers if the originals were toast?

 My first thoughts when seeing the pics as well.  I don't think I've ever seen a car of that era that had seats that didn't match the door panels to some extent.  

I didn't want to belabour the point, but for a car to be worth $50K+, I would want the details to be correct.

Still a nice car, though, and seat upholstery would be relatively easy to change, if the pattern and material is still available... or at least the material if you have a good upholsterer to make up new seat covers.

Corvettes had some "odd" combo's in the 60's that made you say "REALLY". Till you checked it out... White seats with blue door panels come to mind, but not in any other GM model.
