Cloth seat "upholstery" was a standard item in all years, but leatherette was 
always an option. In the years 66-73 when type 3s were officially imported into 
the US they were always equipped with the optional leatherette. I've heard that 
they could be had with cloth if special ordered, but I don't know if that's 
true. I've never seen anything other than leatherette.

Those listees who specialize in the early years will probably be more familiar 
with the cloth upholstery since these cars were all privately imported and 
would have arrived here with a wider variety of options.
