another seat thread - vintage racing seats

Recommended Posts

I am looking for new seats for my 510.

 

I am not really a fan of modern “race seats” – especially those with the manufacturer’s name scribbled all over them.

I really like the look of vintage racing seats with the chrome grommets.  Something like these:

The Corbeau GT4 is similar in style I suppose but I don’t want to give up a head rest.

 

These look pretty much the part:

However, I don’t really want to give up reclining for that matter either.  And I’m thinking of these for my wagon but if I wanted to run them in the coupe, I’d want them to fold forward too.  Does anything like that exist?  Maybe a porsche seat?  Am I going to be finding some OEM Recaro and taking them to an upholstery shop with a fist full of dollars?

You could do some sort of bracket that let's the whole seat fold forward

Not sure about these, but I have 924 seats and the 510 rails bolted right to the Porsche seats. :)
