Low back narrow body seats wanted

Recommended Posts

Dolmo

I have a beautiful (biased much) 1988 SEi.

One thing that has bugged me for a while is that the seats are just a block sponge with a bit of cloth wrapped round them.

 

I'd love to put in some original seats in her, as she looks more like a classic than a performance Westie.

 

Preferbly not a bright colour if I was to be picky. My interior is gray so gray/black seats would be ideal.

Also with out any kind of headrest.

 

Cheers all.

The standard seats are just a wooden sheet covered with foam cushions and westfield embossed vinyl covering (although molded into a seat shape). They just sit in the car - held by friction.

 

Be careful putting any other seat types into a narrow since they don't have the steel cross straps on the floor that a wide has, and so the point loading of a normal four bolt seat can pull the floor off the side rails over time.

Also, most of the normal widebody options won't fit in.

 

I don't have a very good picture of mine:

Hi Geoff, it appears I'm half way there with the wood and sponge but they haven't gone as far as moulded seat shapes, mine are just rectangles wedged in.

Now I've seen yours, I know what i'm after.

 

Thanks!

I have a tatty pair if your struggling, off black, rear section is fine but bases would need repair as the plywood has gone soft and the rest is folowing.

They are in long term storage with my parents as I was going to keep them with the car but at the same time don't expect to take out the current fibreglass seats.

Certainly I can arrange for photos if your looking to have some made. Might not be this week mind!

Hi Daniel,

 

Sorry for the late reply, I haven't been around for awhile.

I'd be definitely interested in seeing some pics if still available.

 

I'm in no rush so when ever is convenient.

 

Cheers

Ok, I am home in four weeks from now if that works, and can take pictures then.

Hi,

 

I'm doing a garage clear out and have a set of lovely condition original seats, the headrest versions in black vinyl with runners.

 

Can send you pictures, and wanted £50 for them plus postage or you can collect (I'm in Wiltshire).

 

Came from an original car I put later seats in a couple of years ago.

 

Thanks

Due to a number of reasons sadly I had to neglect my car for almost two years (not just my car).

However, i'm now in a position to continue were I left off and bumping this thread again.

Cheers!

Hello Dolmo, I have a pair but they aren't embossed with the Westfield logo a bit dirty due to storage. Yours free if you want them based in Sunny Birmingham.

Het rusty, thanks for getting back to me.

Not fussed about the embossing.
It would be great to see a couple of pictures if possible though?
I'll DM you my email if you'd prefer to take this chat off the forum.

Cheers
