Default Corvette Aftermarket Racing Seats

Thinking about buying some aftermarket racing seats for my C4 corvette but i'm having some trouble finding good brands and ones the come with the mounting brackets. Anyone know a good brand and where to get the mounting bracket to fit it??

Sparco and Corbeau are the most popular and they typically have seat brackets to purchase to mount the seats on.

I also checked into replacement seats last year, but decided to go with just some seat covers. There's a few threads on here that say which models are narrow enough for C4's. Most are too wide.

Just a note: I found a pair of new "Sparco's" on ebay for a very good price. After e-mailing the seller with a couple questions, he said they were imported seats that he embroiders the name on it. (not made by Sparco) They had even copied Sparco's stock pictures for their listing. I forwarded the correspondence to Sparco, but never heard back. Long story short, I'd buy from an authorized dealer......

I have a pair of APC sport seats in my '96 that I will sell. They have adjustable backs, adjustable seat tracks and come with mounting bases that fit the '84-'96 C4. I'll let them go for $250 for both with the mounting bases, plus shipping of course.
No tears, no stains, no wear, no burns.
PM me if you are interested. I can send pix.
