The 1979 Versailles provides Flight Bench Seats as standard equipment. Upholstered in an elegant Dorchester nylon knit fabric, which is napped and sheared for the look and feel of cashmere. Dorchester Cloth is available in six colors, two of them new for 1979 (Turquoise and Champagne). The sew style features three inch wide pleats with wider bolsters. Genuine Leather covers the instrument panel top surface, door arm rests, and wraps the steering wheel rim. A high gloss woodtone applique on the instrument panel, steering wheel, and door trim panels gives the interior additional warmth and richness.

Ultra-soft genuine Leather seating surfaces were available as an option with Flight Bench seats.
