Best seat selection for low clearance

I'm trying to decide on seats for my rambler project. I don't like what I have because they are high back buckets out of a 2000 camaro and I may want to install a 5 point harness at some time in the future and I don't want race seats. Because the front seats in my car have been moved so far back it puts the main hoop of the roll bar just behind my head so I'd like the lowest low back adjustable headrest seats I can find for more clearance. I removed the original seat runners from the camaro seats and adapted them to 7/8 thick universal tracks and that lowered them about 1 1/2" to 2" but I'd like more clearance. Any suggestions?

Thanks

SN95 Mustang seats have a fairly short back.. I'm 90% sure the headreast is adjustable

Jeep Wrangler seats are thin and low in the bottom (with the runners you have), but I think they are high back. You might look at replacement Jeep Wrangler seats though.
