I'm thinking of upgrading my seats as my resto-mod drags on. The interior is ginger so I was thinking anything with mostly black would be fine. Looking for some comfortable cruising seats. Anyone have any suggestions?u

1971 Mach 1 restored in the original light pewter metallic with TMI interior and custom stereo from Pacific Car Audio
We are very happy with the sport seat covers and foam from TMI. Quite comfortable and holds you in

'72 "mach" and a bunch of other stuff.
I have a 2014 Taurus SHO as my DD.

Seats have heat, cool and active massage....got me thinking, I wonder if a set of take outs from a wrecked car would work in my 72.

Way to far down the road as I have drivetrain work to focus on, but like I said the thought did cross my mind.

TMI Products has new seat upholstery in several designs & colors. The Sport Seats have thicker bolsters and 'look' mostly stock with better support. The Sport Seats and Sport Seat R500s have even more of the same with most of the stock colors as well. Sport Seat II and XRs have the suede inserts for more breathe-ability (I suppose).

Here are how mine came out - you can immediately see the difference in bolstering with the Sport Seats - the original seats are absolutely flat in comparison.

My dad had some very nice and comfortable seats from a Mazda in his 1970 Mustang he had for some time ago, they were adjustable very nice to sit in. It's really nice with the TMI upgade, but I hade that the factory seats not are adjustable in the back.. I would go to the junkyard to find something, take some measurements from your car and go look for what you can find.. You could eventually install some seats from a newer Mustang if you want to go that route, or else you could find some Recaro or Corbeau seats.. :)

I just bought these for the Green 72 should be here tuesday-wed There are lots of options for recovering re-foaming your old seats but by the time your done it costs more than a set of these & your still stuck with a non adjustable recline ..I have a similar set in my 71 Camaro & love them great seat for the money

I'm assuming these go right over the old frame? This might be the route to go rather than risking how a whole new seat will feel. Wasn't thinking re stuffing and recovering was an option.
