Has anyone put newer mustang seats in a old mustang? I was going with racing seats but I like the look and feel of the 80's seats. I just dont want to get into a mess! Did the 87-93 gt seats come in black? Is it hard to find a good set? Any other seats that do well and have a racing look?
Thanks

I have a set of '98 model seats ready to install in my '65 when I get that far along. You will have to reuse the seat tracks off the early car, by bolting them to the front hole in the new seats and drilling new holes for the back bolts. Also you have to straighten the seat adjuster so it will clear the new seat. I hope this helps

I haven't actually installed mine yet, but I've got seats from a '94 Gt. The width of the tracks is the same, only the front to back spacing is differant. What I'm going to do, is use the existing '67 seat track, using the existing front mounting hole to mount to the front mount home ol the seat (remove the 94 seat track). Then Drill a new rear hole in the track for mounting to the rear of the seat. Then mount just like a '67 seat in car.

I seem to recall Stephanie Roberts installed a set in her '68 but I can't remember if it came from an '93 or '98 or some other 3rd or 4th gen 'Stang.

I don't think it was impossible - maybe swapping the '68's seat tracks to the modern seat?

If I find her website URL I'll post it (currently on the library's computer).

Hope that helps,

That pretty much sums it up. It's a piece of cake to install. The toughest part is attaching the seat tracks.

I have seats from a '91 Mustang in my daughter's '69 coupe. $150, and about 2 hours of work and we had some real nice, very comfortable high back seats, with adjustable head rests, fully reclining, yada, yada, yada.

It's an excellent and cheap mod to make. It would have cost me as much to recover the old seats!

I mocked up a set of '89's in my FB. They looked out of proportion, to me. They are to tall. They are a few inches higher than the stock which puts my head firmly against the roof. I'm 6'2". I decided to use aftermarket seats. My '89 seats , grey, are available to those near Modesto, CA.
