Boy David - they get expensive, but if you really like comfort and good looks Recaro's are hard to beat. You might want to consider looking through boneyards for something though.....never know what you are going to find. I got a set from a guy on craigslist a few weeks back. They came out of a BMW and he had removed all the electric switches/wiring/components for $50!! Very nice cream leather - I may have them recovered when I get that far unless I can match teh rear seat to this color..? They measure very close to the seats in the cat...

How about 69 headrest seats. You could fashion 68 XR7 foam and covers for originality. Otherwise your imagination is the key.

I'm not sure - I didn't ask the guy - it was a 80's vinatage I think. I was just checking sizes and it seemed to be close enough. They are multi-adjustable with lumbar support too - which I think is a must IMO.

Look in the wrecking yards for 1989-1990 Cougar XR7, or 1989 to 1995 Thunderbird Super Coupe bucket seats. They are high back, with Bolster, lumbar, etc. Very nice seats, full power controle, etc. Shouldn't be too much to have them recovered if needed.

try 2001 hona prelude w/o power---power tends to get taller---these have lumbar-removable head rests---map pocket and tilt---pass goes foreward when the backrest goes foreward---and a flat mounting pattern---i made plasma cut 1/4 plates with studs---mounts in the stock holes----they are narrow enough for a console and have the female seat belt buckel attached to the inside edge---no more dinged console's---look great reupholstered in cougar pattern
