Volvo

Very reliable friend advises he used VOLVO seats out of the early 80's for a fully functional manual (6way)....and I can attest to the comfort....

drchip I got some power seats for my 35 Ford out of a Ford minivan. They seem to fit good although I'm a little concerned about room for the mustang t5 shifter - think they'll be ok. Any opinions on these seats?

Another option

I am using these in my '54 Ford sedan,I had some buckets I liked but had to sell them because they were a little too wide for the car.The ones I will be using are mid 80's Mustang GT good comfort and the brackets sit flat on the floor making it easy to bolt down with little fab,I will be recovering them to match interior color later.Here is a pic of one.$40 for the pair on craigslist one of my better scores!

I think I want my 71 Cutlass back

I like the Fusion seats above, particularly the square off top ..... I do want to avoid the more contemporary sides .....

I'll take a look at the T Bird and Riviera seats as suggested.....

Kind of makes me want my old cutlass seats ..........

Thanks guys for all the good ideas .... keep'em coming ....

ogre these are a pair of 07 fusion seats.
i cut 6'' out of the back to get them low in the window.
i also mounted them quite high to give me a little leg room (i'm 6'4'')
they do have the plastic pieces on the sides.

Chevrolet4x4s The later model Buick Rivera seats are comfortable too,but are not compact in size.

I guess every butt is different..They are comfortable to me,,And never had any trouble with them..I owned three set's of them,, I think they are the best looking seats you can find in a junk yard...

cavalier seats do look good but they are injected foam seats. Not sure what everyone else opinion on injected seats are but i avoid them like the plague.

Hey Shawn (Kriskustoms)

I'm close to the point in my build of a 36 Ford Coupe that I need seats for mocking....Your note on the Chrysler 300 could not have come at a better time....Given your knowledge of the width and particularly the height of the seats, would the be a good basis for my build....I do not want the seat backs above the bottom of windows...or perhaps no more than a couple of inches or so, if you know what I mean....

Bryan59EC Vince---
the 93+ Thunderbird seats look almost like they belong in a 46-48 Ford.

They were comfortable to me as well----in both of my 'Birds
(bought a 94 new---liked it so much I added the 97 later----drove these cars to DEATH)

They might fit well in an earlier model
Another option----if space is limited, might be the seats from a Mitsubishi
Galant or similar----a bit narrower and even the 4dr seats will tilt forward for rear access if needed.

Just a thought
