Check out www.classtiqueupholstery.com. They supply correct uphostery kits for all Model T’s and Model A’s. When I upholstered my ‘26 coupe in 1971, Carter’s Cut and Cover was the main upholstery kit supplier, but they went out of business. Jim Patrick

Hi, It makes a difference when your car was made. If it is a late 1927 it has no buttons, Check your build date, Bob.

Bob, Thanks for the information that the late '27's did not have buttons on the upholstery. Do you know the approx date when the use of buttons was stopped, or where this might be documented?
Thanks,
Keith

Bob P. is correct. my 1927 was built in March of 1927 and had no buttons. The rear seats had been redone with buttons, but the fronts were original and had no buttons.
