I ran across a Smart car at the junkyard today.
I never noticed how narrow and low they are.
Might fit in a GT, Manta for sure.
Fairly firm with decent bolsters.
Not goo crazy about this pattern, though.

The pattern sucks, definitely. But the passenger seat looks like it was pooed on. So, you would have to have it redone, anyway.

Just thinking. I have some decent GT seats, just need a decent GT...
My Manta has some Scheel seats, kind of somewhere between Recarro and Corbeau.

I know several members have used Miata seats, but even they seem 'big'.

Not poo, just junkyard mud. Couldn't possibly be anything objectionable in junkyard mud....

I am using Corvette C3 seats with leather covers. They fit nicely. If I hadn't needed to engineer a mod for the seat mount, on top of the GT sliders, I may have been able to avoid the slight rub at the top of the seatback swivel. I love the feel of these seats!
