Volkswagen Rabbit/Cabriolet Seat Covers: Rabbit Truck, 1980-84

The picture is of the interior of a VW Rabbit truck.

The seat covers are red smooth vinyl. Seat covers can be made in one or two fabrics: the trim is the solid (unpleated) vinyl and the main fabric (inserts) are pleated in the picture.

There are thousands of different VW seat covers (year, color(s) etc.) We must have these seat covers custom made. Shipment times average 8 weeks.

Please be certain of your color choice(s). We provide the best customer warranty service but returns are only honored if there are quality issues. We will be happy to send you fabric swatches as requested.

Important Information

Our VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet seat covers are made by TMI. This manufacturer has specilized in VW seat covers and other upholstery and created a near monopoly on quality original replacement seat covers for the VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet, and other VW seat covers.

TMI makes high-value interior automotive components like seating, interior consoles, floor coverings, door panels, convertible roof assemblies, headliners and integrated electronic systems. They have taken original seat covers from VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet interiors and precisely stored their geometry. They have also sourced very fine replacment fabrics. Although the 'stippled' design was a Volkswagen one, equal quality (but different detailing) are available for your VW Rabbit or VW Cabriolet seat replacement.

Fabrics are illustrated for all our seat covers. We have provided scans of all available VW Rabbit and VW Cabriolet seat cover fabrics. If you are not satisfied with the scans you can contact our support email address (see contact above) and we will mail you the swatches you specify for your replacement seat cover project.

There are several original seat cover designs. Some are fitted tight, others have their seat inserts "pillow out." The links to your VW seat covers on this page will take you to the selection process where you will be able to define the style of your seat from the seat cover illustrations provided.

For over 40 years our company has operated out of our Rhode Island buildings providing interior upholstery, convertible tops and, in particular, Volkswagen Rabbit and Volkswagen Cabriolet seat covers to precisly replace your original seat covers.

Bear in mind that these are factory replacement seat covers. They are not slip overs advertised as seat covers ! Installation is within the province of handy patient restorers. Replacing your Volkswagen seat covers is fully covered as are all interior upholstery techniques in the book we offer on your car's seat cover page. Instructions are provided for your seat covers in the package with the replacment seat covers, but you may be interested in doing other upholstery work in your Rabbit or Cabriolet.

We are a "bricks and mortar" company with a 40 plus year reputation for quality and service.
