I have a FiberFab 1929 Mercedes kit car. I want to put some nice high bucket seats with a headrest in it, but I am having a hard time finding any that fit. Does anyone of buckets seats like these from other cars that will fit? Any help will be muchly apprecited.

Tks in advance!!

Would some for a aircooled Beetle work?

Can you post some measurements of the space you have to work with?

Miatas have some of the narrowest seats I've seen. Might try a pair of them. They're 19" wide.

It is a funny thing about miata seats. In a miata they are great. When I had my Miata I never even thought about them. They seemed supportive enough, I never fell out of them and they never created any issues that made me even notice they were there. When I realized just how narrow they were I didn't hesitate to buy a set based on my previous experience.

In my fiat on the other hand they are totally unsupportive, ugly and uncomfortable. I hate them. They look goofy in an older car as well.

I think it must have to do with the reclined seating position in the Miata versus the upright fiat sedan.
