These seats came with the car. I dont need them as they already had different seats installed. The material and the cushion are in not the best shape but the frame seems very solid.

Anybody want them? Make me an offer (I dont know what they are worth) + shipping and I will send them to you

They appear to be a 70 style Mk3 highback seats. Or at least the second version of them.

Those are 1971-1972 MkIV highback seats.

The last set I saw for sale on ebay were bid up close to $2,000 in similar condition (meaning solid but in need of re-upholstering.)

What you have there is a bit of unobtainium. There are those who would step on their own grandmother to get their hands on them.

Hire bodyguards.

Hopefully, what you get for the seats will pay for that front bumper you need. smileys with beer

Looks like you could use a proper trunk handle too.

Yikes! That was good to know before I made any irreversible modifications to the seats in my GT6, which appear identical.



"Lisle" - '72 GT6 basically stock and original. For now... T-9 conversion pending.
"Winnie the Poo" - '79 Spitfire 1500. Rubber to chrome bumper conversion, otherwise stock at the moment.

If I might ask, what kind of seats do you have in the car now?

In my opinion, aftermarket seats are rarely (never) better than the originals.

Take a couple of deep breaths before you sell them, it may be something you regret.

Not sure exactly what they are. They are low (no head rest) and do not recline, etc. They kind of fit the feel of the car

I will take a picture tomorrow

Thanks, I'd sure appreciate it.

I have a 71 with the highback seats that need reupholstering. Since I'm not keeping it factory I'm thinking buying Cobra Roadster seats or some other aftermarket seat and just selling the originals rather than pay an arm and a leg to have them properly reupholstered.

I'd put the high backs back in, wouldn't want to be rear ended without headrests. My GT6 has fixed low backs, I'm not sure if I will modify them for removable head rests or source a head rest set.

I have low backs in my 66 Mark II. I also worry about being rear-ended, especially with the so-called roll bar right behind my head. Does anyone know of an add-on head rest kit from somewhere? Otherwise, I'm thinking I might find some Miata seats from the salvage yard.
