Katzkin leather seats

Wrap it into new-car financing

As for the cost of the kit, Katzkin's kits typically cost $1,995 (installed) for a two-row vehicle, or $2,295 for a three-row vehicle. And at most dealerships, you should be able to arrange for the job, and have it covered under new-car financing. In addition to three styles, Katzkin offers a regular-grain leather, as well as a premium grain Tuscany leather that's softer and suits high-end luxury applications.

The other big selling point: the upholstery is hand-sewn in the U.S.A. When an order is placed, the seat kits are assembled at Katzkin's own facility—in the Los Angeles region—that same day, then next-day-shipped out to the installation partner. “Start to finish, it's a 48-hour time period,” said O'Connell. “All of the manufacturing happens right here in LA with local folks.”

Katzkin has built its name on kits, but looking ahead, the company is broadening its ventures in custom and individual installs—such as those that some owners have ordered to correspond with exterior color in the Camaro and other sports or muscle cars—as well as in OEM installations. Most notably, its leather has appeared in this year's Mopar show cars, including the Fiat 500 Stinger, Dodge Dart 210 Tribute, and Mopar 300.
