63 Parisienne bucket seat covers


After lengthy gawking at the internet for answers and reading til my eyeballs bleed can any of you guys pinpoint where I might get a driver side two tone aqua bucket seat cover from? Also are our Parisienne buckets the same as the American cars? I know we're up against whl base issues and such...What about width? Were floor pans wider stateside? Thus making bucket seat frames and uphostery bigger/wider?I ask because 63 is a stand alone seat upholstery design, I believe, and the 63 Parisienne 2 dr sport coupe bucket seat only matches up in pattern to the 63 Bonneville stateside. I see a lot of sites comparing Parisienne to Catalina or Grand Prix niether of which is correct.  Any thoughts will be appreciated.  My driver seat has a couple of seam separations that don't look very nice. I won't deal with that this year but would like to line up my ducks!!smile

I've had a chat with Profit interiors regarding Parisienne to Bonneville as opposed to GrandPrix. Seems this is a web wide misconception .. at least for 63. Lindsie tells me that all the seat frames match up ie Canadian to US and also Pontiac to Chevrolet. We are talking B Bodies here.So it would appear to me now that only the floors are different due to the "wide track" frames of the era. I thought maybe the entire body was wider hense my query regarding seat frames. Anyone bought interior stuff from there? My seats are two tone which he says they will help with.

The black bucket seat covers I purchased for replacement I got from Dale from NOS, back when he sold these things.

Yes the Bonneville is the right match for the Parisienne, not the Grand Prix. 

I don't recall 1963 Parisiennes having two tone seats, always thought the American Pontiacs had that feature.

Darryl (Pontiacanda) in PEI I believe has aqua buckets.

Check with Dale from NOS,he's a member here on the site, I'm sure he will head you to the right place

to get your seats covers.

The differences between 1963 Parisienne and 1963 Grand Prix and 1963 Bonneville and 1963 Catalina bucket seats.

Which pattern matches your seats?

My 1963 Parisienne matched the 1963 Bonneville.

the below 63 Bonneville seat covers are manufactured by Parts Unlimited. Same as Parisienne. The AQUA part #  63PSB50U. Insure you initially ask for  Aqua samples and email you a photo prior to ordering.

502-425-3766 & ask for Todd

We did a complete interior for a '63 bench seat convertible in 'dark maroon (original owner) . Colour match with the original  'sierra' grain was  not close. We sent samples of the Parisienne vinyls and PUI was very helpful (and with the customers confirmation)  the interior was made using  Mopar colours for a very close match.
