Hey everyone, just recently picked up a 1978 Datsun 620.
My first car was a nissan 240sx :P

My bench seat has been chewed and ripped to shreds by a family of mice that were living in the truck.

I want to replace the bench with buckets since i have to do some patches in the floors at the same time

Any suggestions or tips in terms of what seats fit nice and what to expect or look out for?

Thanks a bunch

Cory

I used neon seats in my 620. I had to make a spacer for the rear side on both seats, on the back mounting points. Fit great, comfy!

I used '80s Shelby Mustang seats in my '74. Also had to make rear mounting brackets, just used 1" square tubing. At some point though I need to do some floor patching and I'll be doing some bomber seats.

Thanks for the info!

I think im going to try and see if some gtr seats would fit sine they have a fairly thin back rest which would still give me lots of room.

If anyones got picks of their seats please post some up just so i can get some more ideas!

You can use the Ratsun search box, but it works even worse ...

620 Bucket Seats are the way to go.
