Did the 914 ever come stock with the houndstooth interior?

If so, please post some pics and I am nore interested in door panels, dash treatment etc.

That is Totally Incorrect.

2 916s came with Paisley Interiors, I think the rest came with Leather.

what did the door panels look like?
Dash?

I saw a set of seats at Hershey one year...and then again T.C. posted a set on here.
I really like that dark tan/houndstooth combo....
Its very vintage and fitting.

IIRC the Houndstooth in the USA was only available in 75-76 MYs AFAIK, and the bottom pic in TC's last post is a member here who had his reupholstered to original IIRC (hopefully he'll chime in).

Another of it showing a big bumper 75 or 76 ....

Same as TC's for reference ....

The Houndstooth, Plaid & Corduroy for all MYs was only for seat inserts, the door panels being either basketweave or smooth textured (71 & ??), and the dashes all the same vinyl covered (except the 2 914-8's & all 916s with leather).

You can see all the interior choices by MY at Jeff Bowlsby's website here -

I've had my '71 (built 9/70) since new and it came with houndstooth seats. No recent pix, but you can see the driver's side seat in this picture.

So I know they were available then, just not very common.Attached Image

Not sure how well this pattern matches the factory stuff.

I like the blue, the wife said no (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

I have a 73 with factory houndstooth. Pretty sure it came that way.
Also just sold a set of houndstooth we did up for the fixed seat set up today.


Will be doing up a few more sets, can easily do more if you want some.
