    BN6 Front Seats

    My driver's side front seat snapped at the hing point. Will try welding new tabs but would like to have a good spare(s) in case it fails again.

    Thanks - John

    Re: BN6 Front Seats

    If you are unable to find a satisfactory replacement, I have a pair of factory seats from a '60 BN7 with all of the hardware. I believe these seats were reupholstered during the car's restoration in North Carolina circa 2000. They are black with the usual white beading. While these seats are in really excellent condition, I mucked up a small edge section of the driver's side left bolster by trying to remedy some wear with a vinyl patch kit. Another bad idea. One seat also had a bit of cutting at the bottom edge of the back rest where it contacted the frame. I have covered that with matching vinyl material. I have no idea what the shipping would run on the seats from the Jacksonville, FL, area. I will sell them for $600 plus shipping. They do take down for fairly compact shipping. For the record, I replaced these seats with aftermarket leather versions. As my car has a Toyota 5-speed, etc., Bilstein shock conversion, etc., originality was a secondary consideration for me.

    As luck would have it, my seats are black with white beading as well. Can you send me a couple of pics - vcr@victoriacoffees.com?

    I just took some pix of the seats. I'll try to get them off to you tomorrow.

    The seats are on their way from Florida to Texas by way of Georgia. Should arrive the week of Thanksgiving.
