Are your stock seat covers damaged and require replacement, or are you simply trying to preserve them by using seat covers?
If you are simply wanting to preserve the existing stock covers, then no, they do not need to be removed, as most quality seat covers will slip over the stock ones, but they will look like what their name implies; seat covers.
With OEM covers being sold on Ebay off of wrecked Mustangs, a set of leather OEM covers can be had for cheap right now. I'm seeing fronts and backs in leather for $400.00. Buy a clean set, put them away in plastic, use the ones you have, then install the replacements right before you sell it to get top dollar if your concerned about wear causing lower trade in value.
Leather is easy to take care of with all the leather cleaners and conditioners. If you have damage, a good apolstry shop can repair them like new, even dying them to new condition. I have almost 56K miles on my black leather, and the seats still look like new. Lexol is what I use.
If you have cloth, then buy leather. If you like the cloth, those too can be bought off of Ebay.
