    My truck was hit and is currently in the body shop -- So, i some how talked my way into driving a 2013 Camaro and I am in LOVE with these seats. They're tall, comfortable, power seats and look sleek -- I would guess they would fit nicely in a maverick.

    Thoughts? Only downer is to buy a set is like 800-1200$ for a pair.

    They might be comfy, but they look funny.

    Explorer bucket seats from the late 90s feel pretty nice, and could be reupholstered to look perhaps a bit like 73-74 Mav seats ... at least the back, the seat bottom is still more modern.

    Explorers are super-common in the junkyards right now, too.

    Frank,

    I was questioning the price too. I am guessing that is the two bucket seat skins (and foam?). I did a quick search under 1971 Mustang Coupe, because that is a somewhat close match for our cars, but the rear skin needs some minor mods. The price for that came to $699 and I am guessing that is the full set including the back seat skin, too.

    I am truly hoping that includes foam, too. I bought a set of TMI 71 Mustang Coupe Standard skins for mine and without foam it was in the $240 ballpark.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the new Camaro seats had side impact air bags too.
