Seats???

Anybody out there know what vehicle, year, model, etc that has power seats, both passenger and driver, have the seat belts fastened to the seat itself and the passenger seat has the ability to tilt forward so that one can get to the back seat? I was told a convertible would have something of this nature? Does even a seat like this exist?

I'd think no.. as the seat would be rely'n on the release lever when the seat belt was "needed" and the seat would just fold forward with you in it..

I don't know about OEM, but in the aftermarket, check with Wise Guys. They offer buckets that have the seat belt built in. They recline, but only come forward to verticle. However, they also sell a tilting seat pedestal. You might be able to use them together. Frame & Foam | Wise Guys Seats & Accessories

My car has seats like that. 1990 Porsche 944. In fact, any Porsche after 1985 has seats like that. Some don't have a power passenger seat, I think that was an option. Before 1985, many of the seat belt recepticles attached to the floor board. Look at the last photo's I posted, those are my seats. The seat belt reciptles attach to the seats, I just don't have them attached when the photo was taken.

Edited later:
Come to think of it, they don't fit your requirement since the seat belt strap is not attached to the seat itself, just the recepticle. I think a Chrysler Sebring convertible seat might work.

power tracks

some times you can switch manual tracks out and add a power one for the pass side and the location of the controls can be moved.

Just going from unreliable memory but it seems like it was some Escalade model years that had the built in belts?

If you need seats that fold forward for a 2dr installation, get the seats from a Chrysler Sebring convertible. These have the belts integrated into the seats. Other than that, many high-end European cars have them, but be prepared to bend over when it's time to pay for them.
