    The plan is to put these seats in my '36.but I have been trying to identify this seat for two months and have had no luck. The seat back attitude adjuster knob is broken and I cannot figure out where it came from to order another. Ford says it is not a Mustang and GM says it is not from a Trans Am.

    My guess is a foreign car from the 90`s. Does the broken part adjust the position of the seat back.

  4. I had a set of Toyota seats that looked a lot like that one, knob was a little different.

    Some Volvo's have open head rests.

    Yes, It adjusts the seat back. I have tried Honda and VW also, to no avail.
    Thank you, oldcars.acadia. That seat looks perfect except for the halo headrest. The knob really looks close. I will try them tomorrow.

    Try Nissan or Acura. If the seat flips forward, it would be out of a sportier two door model.

    I'm going to say Volvo as well, also say 90's, maybe an 850. BUT, I don't recall Volvos having grooves that deep in their knobs or having hollow headrests like that one. The 240's had a slatted headrest.

    Based on the aged look of that knob I'd want to say it's at least 20 years old no matter what it is.

    Do your search around 85 to 95. I know I worked on a seat like that before. With the colored welt and fancy headrests makes it the sportier model.

    They look real close to the seats we had in a late 70's Audi 5000 and look like the cloth version of the 77 Audi 5000S leather seats I have in the shed for the 48. Head rests are headed for Ebay though.

    Looks like the seats from a late 90's early 2000 Honda Civic

    That not a Volvo seat. Opel, Vauxhaul, VAG( Vw Audi Group) maybe.
    Do it has some kind of a mark on them? Is the seatbelt locking part attached to the seat?
    There seems to be no seat-tilt-trigger on them, so a more door.
    Those hollow headrest was a typical 80s fancy piece, as seen on Recaro or other sports/racing look a like seats.
    In the 90s it came on all factory sports models. That velour is also evident of 80-90 era cars.

    Red lined is also "sport".

    Please flip it over and post a picture of the mounting brackets and slider mechanism. Than should give us more to go by.

    I'm thinking mid '80s Volvo or Saab with the open head rests.

    That looks a lot like a pair of seats I once got out of an older VW Scirocco. Maybe GTI or Rabbit?
