Has anyone used this in a 1st gen Camaro

http://procarbyscat.com/seats/Rally

I am thinking of putting these in my 68, has anyone else used these? If so do they look and fit OK. I am 6'4" so I have already had to move the standard seats back but there is just no support while you are driving. Any help appreciated.

Brendan, not sure if it helps as not first hand, but I've seen these as a popular fitment to Gen1 Camaros in the States, so must be a good fit some Google pix if helps...

Not too shaby... be interested to see how you go. I assume you have runners lined up to suit?
Anyone looked into sourcing seats out of late model cars to put in 1st gen? Seen a few real nice nice mods in street machine mag so it must be doable.

Thinking of trying to source from wreckers but have not gotten around to it.

You can buy the mounts to suit the car or just make them. Have a look at Summit or there is a guy in Victoria selling these. Auto Cables in Yarrambat.

We have a 68 Camaro with Pro car rally seats (cloth inserts) not all vinyl, they are excellent, runners go back a lot further. I'm 5.7 95Kg & still get in & out OK
a taller person would find it easer. Don't waste money on original seats it's not worth it. We did on another 68 Camaro we have, we replaced the foams, springs, hounds tooth covers, the foams & springs were way to high. We are sorry we didn't buy pro car seats for it.

Finally did this and went with recovering the originals with the TMI sport option with the side bolsters on the base and back. Very happy with the look, however I did not listen to the advice on this thread and when I proudly climbed in after refitting everything I needed to cut a hole in the roof to fit!http://www.usmuscle.com.au/Forum/images/icons/icon9.gif

I fabricated some mounting brackets to drop the drivers seat as much as possible without cutting the floor. This has worked but I still brush the headlining, my little girl says "lucky you are bald Daddy".

All in all still very happy to be comfortable and I do love the houndstooth.http://www.usmuscle.com.au/Forum/images/icons/icon7.gif I had to put a new spring base in the drivers seat which with the new foam just pumped it up too much.

The procar buckets would have definitely been easier but then the back seat wouldn't have matched and I wouldn't have had the houndstooth.
