Hey Fellas,

I'm doing a little research on interior mods and the thought of new seats came up. What are the best seats that you guys have used in a '65-'66 Mustang? I went to a speedshop today and thank god I sat in a few!! Those nice corbeau carrera seats aren't for the street. I felt like I was seated in a vice grip!! They squeezed my shoulders and were really uncomfortable. Touring seats or high-back Mach 1 seats are probably the best for street.

I'm basically looking for a good seat that will support 4 point seatbelts and will hold me snug (not like a vice though ) I know you guys have a lot of real life experience

Thanks guys!!

Thanks for bringing this thread back up SteveL!!

Do you happen to have a pic of the 71-73 Mustang seats? I've been thinking about the 69-70 Mustangs seats too. I also like Procar seats. If anyone ever decides on a Procar, get them from Summit Racing. $260/ea from them compared to $700/pair from Mustangs Plus. Also, no tax and free shipping from Summit can't be beat!! Not to downtalk Mustangs Plus. Just looking out for people that want to save $$$.

If you guys want '71-73 high backs,I have a pair that needs recovering. I will let both go for $60. I am located near Frederick, MD if you are close enough to pick up. Otherwise, shipping by UPS would be approximately the same amount as the seats, $60. Charlie

I really like the look of the '90 Black Leather Seats.. If they would fit,, that would be a good looking seat in a '66..

Sure,, Now I have to start looking around for seats..

Hey Charlie (MidLifCrisis),

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I don't have a digital camera-unless I get one for Christmas . They are buried in my shed. I think one is red, the other is brown. They would need recovering and maybe the plastic trim painted to match. The foam should still be good. Charlie
