Seat Swap
Does anyone know for sure if C5 Sport Seats will fit into a C3 Coupe? I've got a busted seat frame and can no longer adjust the angle of the back to the seat so I'm always leaning back. I sat in a C5 and the seat is much more comfortably that mine ever were. I love my '78 Coupe but would like to make it more comfortable.
Has anyone made the switch?

Thanks for the input. It looks like a bit of work to fit them in but I expect it will be well worth it. Thanks again.

A. Swap the seats. Driver's and passenger's are the same.
B. Check with the aftermarket providers. They offer a fix kit for the 70-77 seat backs.

Hi jbassat and welcome to cac. You can swap C-4 or C-5 seats into your car but you can order a seat bottom repair plate from many of the after market parts houses. www.riksvet.com offers the repair plate # set285 and new top adjustment bolts # set166 and bottom bolts # set167. You can do like 6880 Mike says and just switch seats untill you decide what you want to do. PG
