Bucket seats for 48 Pontiac

I'm not in a hurry but looking for seats for 48.

I want to put a set of comfortable front seats in my 48 Pontiac Streamliner , 2 Door. But most modern Full Size cars are 4 doors and the seat don't fold forward.

Any suggestions on make and models of 2 door full size cars with buckets that fold ?

Thanks Jeff

Chevy Monte Carlo seats work great. They're not real wide, are very comfortable, and fold forward. This seat is out of a 2005. It is a power seat that is simple to wire up, without a ton of wires to deal with. These seats are going to be done in red leather.

Firebirds, Camaro's, Monte Carlo's, Grand Am's, Fiero's, Mustangs, Sunfires, Cavaliers, Neon's etc., etc., etc. You have a million choices out there. The car of choice doesn't HAVE to be a full size. The seats are designed to fit the general population so you can get seats out of anything.

90's Ford T-Birds are real comfortable seats.

You can also try 2 door SUV's. They need to tilt or slide forward to allow rear seat access. The ones in my 37 Pontiac coupe are out of an 80's Bronco II. There is no separate headrest and they are a little more square. They do NOT have that sporty car look that so many buckets have. Late model SUV's may even have built in seatbelts.

Fiero seats are around, they are narrow enough to allow for a center console. Mr. Mikes makes ready to install leather covers in 8 different patterns for about $700.00/pr. Affordable.

I'm using seats from a BMW convertible.
Flip forward and built in seat belts.

There is also a switch for the person climbing in the back to roll the whole seat forward on its tracks.
They could play with that while you're driving also. Will have to figure that one out. Handcuffs should do it I guess.
