Re: Seats

Try Prestige Mustang out of Georgia. They have a ton of stangs with leather seats, both front and back. I think pricing is based on condition. Don't know much about swapping seats.

Re: Seats

Fronts are four bolts, rear bottom is clips. The rear back will be a little tough, just a couple of bolts but it's a big piece since it will be the metal frame and fold down seats attached. At least for a coupe that's the back seat, most likely similar for the 'verts.

Very possible and easy, just need a basic tool set, ratchet and sockets really, possibly a flathead screwdriver.

Try and get them out of a 99-04 although anything from 94+ should work, def. for the fronts, I'm just iffy on the rears.

Re: Seats

ebay has sets usually and price reasonable, expect 500 bucks for a set of leather seats in good shape, for some say 03 cobra seats expect 1200 for fronts~ give or take depending on condition.

If I personally was buying I would NOT buy v6 or Gt leather seats as they are horrible. Buy some custom aftermarkets for around 300 each~ or 03/04 cobra perhaps but they do have the cobra on the seat of them

Re: Seats

I'm guessing because of quality of leather, comfort and performance. The v6 and GT leather seats don't offer much side bolstering or thigh support. I've heard the Mach 1 seats are better, but as spec said aftermarket or cobra seats are probably your best bet. You might pay a hundred dollars or more for aftermarkets, but they're worth it.

Re: Seats

the v6 seats have NO support, when I got my 03 cobra I sat back in my 01 v6 and dear lord did they feel horrible lol

seats in the 94-98 gt's are better support than 99+ gts but the color is a bit off but you CAN dye the seats if you wish

Re: Seats

Check with a local shop and see what the cost of having your seats re-upholstered. If you don't know of a good company check with a Ford Dealership Sales Department as they sell Cloth vehicles that are re-upholstered to leather all the time. It may save you a penny or so.

I take out the rear seats all the time in mine to get my sub box in and out its easy. All it is is taking off the headreast which is three screws. Take out the top two screws. And take out the bottom two screws. For the bottom all you do is push a lil button and pull like hell its very easy.

Re: Seats

the seats you have in your GT are about like the V6 seats for how they sit, they look nearly identical~ the designs are just a bit different.

Here are pictures the 2001 cobra seats


Here is a link to 2003 cobra seats pictures

Had a feeling that was where you were going. Thank You! She is very beautiful to me! Yes, she scores well higher than the seats.
