    I am also looking for comfortable seats. I have a bunch of random originals but it cost more to cover them then new. I am very interested in the Carbeau Sport. I am amazed that when I do a search here that this is the only thread that comes up on the entire site. Seems impossible.

    Is there a way to at least make the original recline back?

    I remember my old 78 had a "recline" feature. It was a lever with a block on it with 2 diffrent heights. Wasn't much though. That was 20 years ago when I had it. Could have been something someone else added.

    I think that was the RPO AN6 Driver Seat To Adjustable Reclining Seat Back option.

    80's s10 blazer bucket seats would prob work and I think they recline. Those years look more like the 2nd gen seats. The Later years into the 90's would prob be more comfortable but they could possibly work too. On camaro I prefer the look of a tall seat, versus the seat with the removable headrest. It just looks more natural.

    I think these will work on your 2nd gen tracks

    Yes there is. I used the original seats (72) I moved the latch striker (& inboard pin) approx. 1/2 lower to reset the layback I needed to get the proper driving position, gave it another 4-6* layback. Did the same for the passenger. My build notes states about 24/25* factory, and now 28-30*.

    Reinforced & seam welded the frames, and added extra bolstering to the sides before putting on new seat covers. Looks original, and better seating position.

    For reference, here's a pic with the (approx.) driver in original position vs passenger.
