Don't think your muscle car has been restored to completion until the interior has returned to original or like-new condition. It's a considerable undertaking with a lot to consider, such as whether a car operates in a northern or southern climate. Factors like this will impact the way in which seats, carpets, and other equipment deteriorate and wear out over time.
