    Early sport seats with Recaro logo

    Did these come with any particular year or model?
    Thanks.

    Wouldn't that be something! And at the prevailing prices too.

    I had those very seats and they were available in the early 70s aftermarket. I became a Recaro convert after those. Very comfortable and grippy.

    They are also the same style seat that Excellence advertiser PAR always has on their ads, which are no longer carried. Go figure.

    Just a small additional note.

    From what I have seen of the seats like these that I have seen (and owned), and also from the advertisements in old Panorama's......these "aftermarket" sport seats came with the early 67/68 tip brackets (and sliders), not the later 69-73 boat anchor brackets.

    Perhaps the DOT regulations were more stringent than the aftermarket?...or some other reason....?

    It appears that your seat does have the early style tip bracket from the picture...

    regards,
