Vette(s): 81 beauty all original (not anymore!!)

Hi guys... Now you have me thinking about my uncomfortable seats in my 81 (driver is power) Anyone know of a good seat with a higher back and maybe more padding?? its great for 100 miles but any longer and i have to hit the advil after!!!!!!!

I was told that 82-86 Fiero seats are a good swap and comfortable than the earlier c3 seats
You jogged my memory. It was Fiero seats I sat in last week. They were comfy but sat much higher. The owner said the upholstery shop could not get them lower in the car. If you are 6 ft tall you'll have an inch or two max above your head.

Low miles (was only 8,900 when I bought it in March 2006) - Now 42K miles. Original owner bought it as an investment for son's college expenses.

I did put C5 seats in my 74 convertible. Like John said about the others, they sit much higher. I bought an extra set of C3 tracks and created a template on plywood for the holes, then lined up the C5 seats and put the tracks on them (had to tap a couple of new holes). Overall, a pretty simple process.
I wanted a Corvette my whole life, but I never dreamed of all the wonderful people I would meet because of it!

I installed modified Corbeau seats in my '69. The seats are shaved, but still sit a little higher than the factory seats. The modified seats are available in 2 styles from Speed Direct (speeddirect.com). Better padding with side and lateral bolsters.
