My parents had a 73 beetle they got after they sold
the squareback. It had the black & white houndstooth
cloth seats that you might have seen somewhere. I
haven't seen them since in any other VW. They wanted
seatcovers for them because, well, we were kids, and
I'm almost positive they came from the dealer. They
were vinyl covers, looked exactly like the vinyl
material other VW seats were made out of, houndstooth
pattern and all. They wore terribly, seams splitting
very quickly, etc.
