On the early 71 cars, did the seats have a brown hairy straw material instead of foam???

Yes. I believe its horse hair.
The horsehair is reputed to be more comfortable than foam by many, it can be washed with soap and water and reinstalled as good as new.
It feels like several layers of cardboard to me.
Well, everyone's butt is different. Went on a Drive this weekend with another Italian car club. 5 hours each way and more miles touring from the destination. Horsehair seats in my '71 were comfortable for me for about 2hrs. My wife gave them 1 hour. They were tolerable after that time, but not great. Got a thin foam pad for my wife and that helped. Few drive their panteras that far anyway.
Steve, they look more comfy than mine. I'm pretty sure my car is sold so, on to something different.
Donny, congratulations on selling your car. It looks great.
Donny - say its not so .....!!!??
Well that was a bit of a short lived flip, did you even get to enjoy it at all?
