I am currently restoring my 57 2 door hard top sedan that Ive had since the 70s. Body and enging are pretty much complete. Im looking for ideas and recommendations for complete interior. Any pictures, suggestions, ideas, recommendations will be appreciated.

I suggest you look at C.A..R.S for interiors ,. My opinion
you can get your codes off the firewall trap . Not sure how familiar you are .
Let’s see what others guys say , I’m a rookie and only intend on doing one 57 myself

Welcome. Just for the record......the sedan and 2 dr Hardtop are different body styles. It will make a HUGE difference when discussing interiors

Look at Ciadella`s. They are the most recommended interior company on here.

I also vote for Cars Inc.. I can't say anything bad about Ciadella, I'm sure they make a great product. But, I've installed two complete interiors made by Cars Inc. and they were top notch. They even made me a two door hardtop interior for my 57 sedan. I installed it in 2011 and it still looks brand new.
I ordered a complete interior for my 57 convertible from Cars Inc, on November 17th. The total was $2083, shipped, taxes aren't shown on the invoice at all. Ciadella wants $3100 and I do not know if that includes shipping or tax.

there is a video on youtube showing the differences between the two interior venders mentioned above,
are you planning to do the install yourself?

I paid $2875 for a complete '57 Bel Air original style interior last September from Ciadella, and it took just 20 days from order date to delivery, even though their web site suggests 4 months.
Gina said they like to "jump on" orders for '57s.
Shipping was $297 from AZ to WA, but the shipping cost also included a complete set of seat foam, front and back (for an additional $700).
The complete interior included the vinyl covered package shelf, carpet and padding, and loose material to cover the front seat shells, arm rests, and lower rear side panels.
It also included the headliner, front door panels, rear upper side panels, windlace set, two visors, the rear sewn arm rest covers, seat back buttons, hog rings, burlap, and extra door panel nails w/clips
It did not include the trunk divider and mat.
