I'm looking for a set of TR250 seats. If you have any for sale please let me know.

Thanks, Bill

Bill, as you may or may not know the 250 seats are 250 specific, and not the same as the 4 or 4A seats, both in the seat covers as well as the frames. I went through the same exercise as you a couple of years ago and found them to be rare as hens teeth. Good luck in your search, the right seats do make a tremendous difference.



Cheers,
Dave

Also with dash and arm bars too I think, and new roadster factory dash for a TR4A...also have the 250 factory grille in mint condition....don't have a price yet,not cheap...but will listen to realistic sane offers. All top shelf stuff...winking smiley

Hi Wyatt
Would you be able to send a pic of the seats?
I would have to recover them in black to match original.

Hi Bill, well not looking to separate the set, sorry. Nice looking green TR250 by the way...

What happened to the seats that came with the car? or didn't it come with seats?

Did not know that - thought they were the same as 4 seats. Guess I'll hold on to mine and have them recovered.

The nimrod that previously owned the car put TR6 seats in it.
I'm at a loss as to whether you are interested in selling your seats or not. Would you please clarify? The pic is appreciated they are definitely what I'm looking for.

Afraid I'll be hanging on to mine . A friend of mine has a set of newly redone 4a seats that I was considering until I realized (with this thread) that they are TR250 specific.

I can ask a couple of triumph guys I use for parts to see if they any.

The seats that are pictured...are you saying they're 250 seats? If so, do they have releases on them...levers to allow them to be pivoted fed. they'd be black with plastic knobs on the ends. Like TR6 seats. Those look like 4a seats

When I found my TR250, it had 1969 TR6 seats in it with the head rests. I did some research and found that Triumph, to meet US federal standards had to add the headrests. All's they did was weld a steel loop on the top of the backrest frame and added new foam and seat covers. So when I took the seats apart, I cut off the steel loop and ground it smooth. Then my upholstery shop did their thing based on pictures I sent them of TR250 seats.

This would lend credibility to my thoughts of repairing the rusty channels along the bottoms of the seats...simply use TR6 seats.

FWIW, early Jaguar XJS seats look the business in two door Triumphs.




Fitting a pair of NOS ones like these to my Vitesse, almost a straight swap onto the original fixing points and look 'factory'.



Swatting the yellow jackets away from the Triumph apple of truth…

Crap Todd - you got me wondering maybe the guy that poached the OD trannie poached the seats as well!

Mine have the releases but in looking on the net they do have a different upholstery pattern than most of the seats shown. That said, I couldn't find any that have the same stitch pattern so maybe they were redone at some point. Have to investigate further.

If you have release levers you're good...they need covering anyway

Add that to the massive spreadsheet of restoration costs smiling smiley
