Smile Fox Seats

I've got a 90 notchback, that has all original interior,
and my driver's seat has seen better days. Are the driver
and passanger seats interchangeable? Can i take the driver's
seat and swap it with the passanger? Or take the seats off the
tracks and switch them? Thanks for your input

Re: Fox Seats

I think your problem would be the seatbelt.

Re: Fox Seats

Yah I would think the seatbelt holder being attached near the headrest would be an issue being on the wrong side. Also, I don't know if the car has a power seat...if so the controls wouldn't be there.

Re: Fox Seats

Re: Fox Seats

I think some places like CJPonyParts offer re-upholstering for the fox seats.
You could also check with some mustang salvage yards, see if they have any seats in good condition for cheap.

Re: Fox Seats

wait don't the seat buckles bolt to the floor? and the shoulder straps go to the side pillar? and even if they were bolted to the seat why couldn't you just swap seats, and swap tracks that way you keep the same track on the original side?

Re: Fox Seats

On our cars the shoulder straps holders are on the seats. They attach just under the headrest area...so swapping a driver and passenger seat would be difficult. If the 90 seats don't have the shoulder straps on the seats, then you would probably be fine. The seat buckles do attach to the floor I believe, so you could use that or switch them so they are facing the right way.

Re: Fox Seats

hahaha...I just ran out to check the buckles...(it's pissing rain here) and they bolt to the floor, and the shoulder harness and inertia reel are bolted to the body, and are not part of the seat.

Re: Fox Seats

fox seats get "the lean" where they lean inwards and they all seem to lean inwards to the middle of the car, they may be swapable but I am betting there are other differences~ you take for example my seats the inner parts where it touches the center console is not leather, its carpet. If you swap them you will see this on the outside~ this is why right hand conversions look funny on my car well one of the many reasons.

Re: Fox Seats

Shop ebay, I picked up new seats for my 90 (well gently used) for under 200 bucks. Also, any seat from fox body to 2004 will fit in your car with no issues.

Re: Fox Seats

I think 94-98 GT seats are the best GT seats for 94+ now mach 1 or 03/04 cobras sears are nice (or 01 cobra seats for that matter.. 99 cobra seats were just like the GT's which suck)

Re: Fox Seats

Yah I wonder why Ford crapped out on the GT seats for 99-04. They are basically v6 seats in leather...no side bolsters or decent thigh support. They look nice, but aren't great performance wise.

Re: Fox Seats

I thought American Muscle had them as well...? I don't know if they are of quality or not.
