Question I need new seats... any idea's?

I don't have a back seat in my car and in the front have racing buckets.
I really need an upgrade. This was fine when I was single but being married with a kid it doesn't cut it.
Not looking for resto stuff.


I want something a little more modern and comfortable then the oem ones. But something that still doesn't look out of place in a 60's car.
This car will be raced a bit (Drag and autocross)


Any idea's out there?

go to a nicer junk yard and start looking at cars that have clean interiors and pick out what you like

I have the Pro Car rallys and love them, much more comfortable than the OEM buckets, and styling fits the car.

Yeah, They look really nice. I'm debating on getting the Rally or Elite from Procar. They get lots of good reviews.


I own a back seat now... That was quick. I'll get it recoverd to match what ever I buy for front seats.

I am more amazed that anyone actually uses kijiji. lol (not a great fan of the latest incarnation eBay myself, and kijiji is owned by eBay)
