EDIT: SOLD!

I wasn't sure what to ask when I started this thread and after some input from other members and looking online elsewhere I am now ASKING $275 OBO plus shipping.


Okay- as the title states, I have a pair of '85 GT seats that have "never been used in a Fiero." I say that because they WERE intalled in a prototype/concept car of some sort around '84-'86 according to the retired GM engineer I bought them from a while back. When this concept was going to be scrapped, I guess he was allowed to take the seats- he thought at the time that he'd use them for a hot rod project eventually. 27 years of storage later, he hadn't used them and decided to clear out some parts he had in his pole barn.

I bought them planning to use them in a Fiero I have since sold and my "new to me" Fiero has a tan interior and I don't want to hold on to these when someone could use them. I have no idea what to ask for these so suggestions are welcome. I certainly won't give them away though- and I am trying to research what they may be worth currently.

I HAVE NOT CLEANED THEM so they have some very light areas that can be seen in the pics. A good clean job and these are almost "as new."

Note that the driver seat has ONE tiny blemish on the front seating area. Can't tell what it's from but it's there. I included a close up of this spot. Also note that the side trim is NOT broken on the driver seat. The side trim piece IS broken on the passenger seat, but I have a NOS passenger side piece I would include in any sale (see pics of this as well).

Anyway, here are pics:


DRIVER SEAT

Whole Driver Seat


Whole Driver Seat with yellow circle noting the blemish I mentioned


Here is the small blemish on the front padded portion of the driver seat- you can make it out in the pic of the whole seat when you look close


Driver Seat Outter Bolster (note the lack of ANY wear and that the trim isn't hanging loose)


Driver Seat Lower Outter Bolster (note the uncracked vinyl piping)


Driver Seat Trim Piece


Dricver Seat Headrest Speakers


Back of Driver Seat (note the unstretched mesh pocket)


PASSENGER SEAT

Passenger Seat Entire Seat


Passenger Seat Lower Side Bolster


Passenger Seat Head Rest Speakers


Passenger Seat Side Trim (this does have the broken tab)


NOS Passenger Seat Side Trim Piece Front


back

I really don't know what to ask for them! Shipping will be pricey due to their size obviously. But these are in amazing condition! I won't make it a "bid" situation but I'd surely consider realistic offers.

Maybe I should re-post in "general" and ask for pricing suggestions from non-shoppers, lol.

I shipped a pair of seats from Minnesota to New Mexico via Greyhound and I believe it was around $96. Used the large garment box from Uhaul. worked perfect.

I just paid $718 for a pair of brand new replacement seats shipped to my door. Considering the hassle it is to install them, I would have gladly paid $400 for yours shipped figuring that they might wear out and need recovering sooner. If only you had posted them 2 weeks ago. lol

I have the exact same set of seats in my '85 SE. I thought the GT seats had a stripe across the back?

'85 GT seats look just like this as far as I know. The ones with horizontal stripes were '86-87 gt's i believe. I had a 30k original mile '85 GT with these same seats in it for whatever that's worth.

I would say 300 for the pair plus shipping is fair. If they were perfect I would say 350 or more. These are 85 only seats for gray interior GT or SE. The striped seats are 84's only. It's all about demand. I think there is more demand for the 86/87 GT seats so they may cost a bit more. Hold out for the price you want and someone who needs them may pay it. I also think these might be less in demand because they hold up better. This might be due to the fact that they have no side piping. Good luck!!!

So difficult is it to take the seats out of a Fiero? I know in my Mustang in order to get the front seats out you have to unbolt them from underneath the car. If someone were to buy theses seats would it be easier to take the fabric off the existing seats and swap them ut with the covers on these. I like the idea of the pockets in the back and my drivers seat fabric is worn but the seats themselves are fine.

Fiero seats are EASY to remove unless you have a nut/bolt so rusty it's rounded off or something. Four nuts have to be removed- 2 front and 2 rear- that bolt the seat to the floor. You can position the seat all the way back and remove the front 2 nuts, then slide the seat forward and remove the rear 2 nuts, then the seat comes right out!

Interested in selling just the skins? It would be much cheaper and easier to ship.

there you go, sell the skins on PFF and sell the shell and frame on ebay to a corvette guy to recover which they would do anyway.
