I have front bucket seats that need new buns and covers. I would like to buy OEM replacements if possible, since custom duplication is out of my budget. I looked for numbers & other things to get a clue. I found "Elyria" on 2 pieces of plastic trim. Maybe there is/was a manufacturer in Elyria? I took a bunch of pictures in hope that someone might recognize the seat. It's the passenger seat. It could have been reupholstered because the rear seat, door panels and headliner all have the same materials. Any help is much appreciated.

Those seats are from a mid-80's Chevrolet Cavalier.
"Elyria" was the Fisher Body plant that molded the seat foam.

GREAT Information!! Thank you! I searched numbers from the trim parts and found some information that indicated 79-87 GM, maybe Camaro, etc., so this helps confirm. None of the seat images I found have fabric close to mine, so that tells me the seats have been re-upholstered with non-OEM. Thanks again for your efforts.

Yes, the seat frame might also have been common to the Pontiac Sunbird and the base Camaro, also possibly common with Grand Am/Skylark/Calais of the same vintage.

Thank you for all the responses. I found several images of similar seats, none with the same upholstery, so I believe they were re-covered. I'll be saving pennies for a custom re-do :cautious:
