    Dodge Charger R/T seats are AWESOME!
    The 300 has a high line package with the same seats too.
    They have massive side bolsters and just look like they should fit like a glove.
    I didn't get to sit in a set, but I sure thought they would look cool in a Mav.
    No rear access though I am sure. :(

    BTW: :ttiwwp:


    Edit:
    How would these look in a Mav?
    They do have rear access.

    Mean Maverick; I used Honda Civic seats, '96 vintage. You have to make the brackets for the seat tracks, but I think they are worth it. Go here to take a look. http://mmb.maverick.to/showthread.php?t=21255 Take care,

    I have posted this pic a couple times before...but here are '93 Ford Probe seats in my Maverick:

    The seats are rather wide and are a tight fit. My car does not have a catylitic converter, and the install was not real hard. I had to add spacers for the inboard rear mounting holes. None of the original holes lined up. I currently have large washers to help stop the seats from ripping from the floor in a crash...but I would feel better if I tied a flat steel bar across the rear two bolts from underneath or something.
    I have found the seats to be really confortable and I think they look pretty cool in a Mav. These ones originally had black and white leather covers, but I dyed the white yellow to go with my crazy color scheme. :D
    I also have to give credit to PART-TIME...I saw pics of his Mav with these same seats and "stole" his idea. ;)

    I just scored some brand new seats at the junkyard out of a '01 escort I think, but they are nice and all I had to do was bend the brackets since it was a new car the tracks are very easy to bend compared to those out of a 71 chevelle lol. You can see them at http://www.htr701.be/gallery/v/Maverick+040.jpg.html Yeah if you get some seats like these just get some clamps and use some muscle and they fit pretty easy.

    BtW: ratio411 I'll trade you my seats for those black ones that you have! :49:
    Those charger seats are from the SRT-8 Version and I too wish I had them, maybe I'll buy some and stick them in my maverick! :rofl2:

    Sorry, those are not mine.
    I clipped the pic from eBay.
    They are 92-96 Vette seats.
    They are optional 'sport' versions.
    Very comfortable and do have fold forward ability.
    I would like to get a set and have them recovered in a Ford-like pattern.

    Very clean install with the Escort seats!

    I don't really have a need for custom seats right now.
    I am working on my Sprint and want to keep it original looking.
    So I am recovering a set of 71-73 Stang seats for it.
    My 75 will get something like the Vette seats one day... but it is on hold till the 72 is done.

    That console is aftermarket and called a "Humphugger". I got the one for a early Mustang. I think at the time I bought it from Auto Krafters, but it looks like it is still available and from lots of other places...and in all kinds of colors as well. Here's a link to one of the places I found it:
