Re: Procar Rally seats, anyone?
I purchased Procar seats for my 66 and am generally not happy.
First off, the adaptors to bolt them into my car didnít fit. I called Procar and found out they used a 65 seat bolt pattern for their 64-72 adaptors. They had no alternate so I cut the brackets off the floor adaptor and welded them back where they should have been.
When installing them I noticed that due to the size of the bolsters on both the seat bottoms and seat backs, the seat barely tilts forward at all. The bolsters hit one another. There is no way someone could get into the back seat of my car without first sliding the seat all the way forward.
The linkage that releases both side of the seat track with one lever sucks at best. I threw their crappy little wire away and made a better one. And even with that fixed they are extremely difficult to slide fore and aft.
The seat is freakishly tall. There is a ton of room under the seats which looks funny. Iím now going to (again) cut the brackets off the floor adaptors, cut them shorter and reweld them. I think Iíll be able to gain an inch or so.
The stupid little flaps on the sides of the seats are too short, in both length and height. They look ridiculous.
On the good side, they do fit my a** quite well and they are substantially lighter than stock.
If I had to do it again I would not purchase Procar.
