  • 65-67 MGBSeats in a 6

    Anyone ever swap in these seats into a 6? Leather and piping, low back. I always like them more than the Triumph vinyl offerings.

    Had a 73 B in the family back in the 90’s. Absolutely hated the seats. There was nothing of any redeeming value about them. Flat seat bottoms, no bolsters to the back or bottom.

    As for your question, B’s have a wider cockpit, and likely wider seats as a result. So that would be the primary limiting factor to consider. I seem to remember that they also sat much higher off the floor, but I’m guessing that is something you could engineer out pretty easily.

      They look nice, if they fit. However, the thought of driving about without any sort of head restraint would give me the willies. I replaced my very tired OEM seats with a pair of NA Miata seats, recovered to match the interior, and with the benefit of headrests and headrest speakers. There's also aftermarket support for making the swap

        The problem with fitting seats in a TR6 is width..... so far only certain year Miata seats fit the bill

          So, I'll bite. Arent the TR250 seats low back like that (and might fit) with little/no mods?

          Wrap them in leather if that's the appeal. I must be missing something.
