    Seat question Daytona replica

    I have a Ferrari Daytona replica it was based on a 1974 Corvette, will Fiero seats fit this car? What seats other than the original Corvette seats will fit without major surgery? I really like the Fiero seat and the various covers avaiable from Mr Mikes, hence the question. Regards Bill

    My Daytona came with freshly reupholstered black leather seats with red piping. I didn't like the piping which was offered on other Ferraris like my 308 for example, but it did nothing for the Daytona. Besides it was a lousy job, so I reupholstered them again in all black leather. They look great to me and are comfortable. Of course anyone who knows Vettes knows my interior is an '80 Vette, but I don't mind, and my friends don't seem to mind either!

    This real Daytona has distinctive stripes with perforated seats:



    Most kit Daytonas do not have perforated seats. My Vette seats look somewhat similar:



    It would be a real cool to get the real perforated Daytona seats (eBay maybe?). Make sure they are the real Daytona seats from the 365 though as late model Ferraris have what they call Daytona seats that are totally different. Another example from a real Daytona:



    The Miami Vice replicas had the perforated seats in a two-tone design:

    I have a horrible back and the Vette seats are out of the question. Now I have owned many C4 Vettes and those seats were fine. With the 74 seats it's like I'm looking at the sky all the time and it requires that I used neck muscles that effect my condition in a very negative way. Here is my Daytona.

    Hey Bill, She's a real BEAUTY! Very sharp! Looks great in black. Even Black Ops would love it! Do you have any pics of her front and rear views?

    You could probably get some C4 Vette seats cheap that would look good. Have you done anything with the interior? If so, have you any interior pics?

    Yes I will dig them up and post them soon. The interior is worn but not bad the dash is almost perfect and looks like the real deal. Needs new carpet, door panels and seats. The carpet and door panels are about a 7 out of 10 so not to bad, really just faded. The seats look ok I just can't drive the car for long with them.
    Regards Bill

    Hey Bill,

    Thanks for the pics! Looks absolutely fantastic! Identical front and rear to mine. What kit is it?

    Your interior looks as near to perfect as far as I can see. Looks great in red!
