Are they the same seat mould as the phase 1 as I have only one original seat in the car I bought from France, I would also be very interested to see a photo, if it is easier my email is walnuts@clara.net

Thanks Keith N

Minilites (or the far cheaper GB Alloys) are THE alloy wheel to have for a 1960s car IMO.

The pictures you showed of the PhII seats are identical to mine but have black piping rather than white. The tubular metalwork is quite strange too, intended to tip forward rather than slide.

I have looked at your thread and my seat is slightly different, the base is also different.

I remember when I had my car in the 60's there was a square metal frame bolted to the seat. At the front of the frame there were two metal hooks one either side, and these hooked into a series of holes on a piece of metal that was bolted to the floor. So to adjust you tipped the seat right forward pulled it out of the holes and replced it in another set of holes, very basic.

The rear of the seat there was just two pieces of pipe one either side with a large washer type arrangment welded on, these just sat on the floor of the car. Alot of this arrangement is still on my seat and the hole set up was still bolted to the body floor






You can see in the second photo the metal pieces on the floor in the passenger side, they were also in the drivers side but I had taken them out in this photo

I would be interested if anyone else has the same arrangement

Is your seat the same as the one in my photo ?

I have had a copy made from my seat, but I am wondering if ph1 seats will fit in my GT as there are no seats wilth it.

When I am fitter after my knee op I will try and sort something out, If you have sold the seat by then fair enough.
