Mine came out of a Pontiac Vibe. I wanted old school manual adjusting seats, not electric. Also didn't want exaggerated seat shape. I think these were from around 2004 or so? They were $30 a pair at the Pick N Pull.



After I did my interior in old school diamond pattern, and deleted the headrest bases.

Before and after, 1990 New Yorker 4 door. I had to modify the back rest tilt so it would tilt forward and removed the headrest. The upholsterer amazingly did the rest. I love the fold down arm rest.

Mine are 05' Subaru WRX. They set a little lower and more room between me and steering wheel.

My favorite are the mid 60's GM seats like Postman has. I have a set just like that out of a 63 Nova SS. If his need some love mine need lots of love. I think those seats look like they were made for TriFives.

98 KIA, 20.00 for the pair, manual sliders, full recline, left side has manual lumbar, headrests pop out.
Black rattle can plastic trim, black leatherette seat covers about 30.00 = good to go for a driver.
Center console is a clutter catcher from Amazon
maybe 35 bux.

Here's another pair of buckets that have the old school look. These came from a mid 70's Mustang II and were very solid seats, but needed reupholstering.
Before, with headrests on.



After, without headrests.



They make a more traditional type bucket, for those not wanting a modern shaped seat.

That turned out great, and at a great price as well.

This has been a really good thread. I remember reading awhile back where Ron Mangus liked using seats out of the Chrysler 300 for his tri five interiors.
