I am thinking of changing my front seats and was wondering if anybody had fitted seats from a  Toyota mr2

Hi all, has anyone fitted head rests to their original seats. If so how did they work out and where did you get them. Thanks.

I would guess you could adapt any small car seat to your mustang. You should not do anything to your original 66 seats. But there yours.

I drive a MR2 every day.  It is the 85-89 style model.  The seats are comfortable  enough.  I have seen in passing through mustang forums that there are a few mustangs with those seats.  A few MR2s came with nice leather covered seats.

What I think is the seat to get would be a Fiero (the nemesis of the MR2) The seats are in a few mustangs as well and have some aftermarket support for nice black leather covers that sorta match the original 65-66 standard upholstery

I agree with saving the seats if you do change. I put 73 Cougar high backs in my 66 for many years but went back to the originals during this redo. . . 8)

Thanks for all your replies. It is from a safety point I would like headrests. I found a site custom accessories that do retro fit headrests, has anyone fitted them. I was thinking of the mr2 seats because they tilt forward. Jim

I put a set of 300 zx seats in a full sized Ford Bronco by using the Bronco seat brackets and removing most of the electrics and welding a few cross braces onto the seat frame.  The whole thing took an afternoon and came out great.

If the seat base width and depth is relatively close anything can be done.
