    I know people that have used Dodge Neon seats. Pretty much a bolt in deal to your stock configuration. You just need adjust the mounting tab, by bending slightly, and you are home free.

    Do not know if you found your answer, or replaced them already, but here ya go.

    Should be able to find them at a u-pull yard pretty cheap..

    my 1980 45 troopy (similar tub structure to 40's of same age) run toyota crown seats (don't know if you guys get them) with some custom brackets fabbed up

    a friend with an 83 40 said celica seats are basically bolt in, don't know exact details

    On my 79, I kept the sliders from the stock seats, then made brackets that bolt the seats to them. That way they bolt to the floor easily and still slide back and forth. My seats are from a 1st gen. MR2.

    the last Crowns we got in the US were late 1960's, here is a local one owner 68 Crown, not sure if these seats would be an upgrade :D[​IMG]

    sorry, not a crown, a cressider, mid 80's velour (P.O.)

    still those crown seats look cool, always been partial to seats that look like that (dead serious)
