Can anyone tell me which seats can be used in a 280ZX targa.
Are the seats in the z-range compatible or can some other make be used?
I wouldn't mind changing my for some leather ones but without the cost of buying new!!.

Any update on this? anyone know if the seats from a Z31 or Z32 could be fitted?

I have seen Z31 seats fitted to a 280ZX, but they are a bit "fat" and push against the door pads when shut. I see no reason why Z32 seats shouldn't be made to fit, but don't expect anything to just drop into place.
The early 280ZX "tombstone" seats are quite a nice replacement for the more saloon type 2+2 seats as long as you have no respect for rear seat passenger forward vision.

Thanks for you help.

I have a new question:

I have a Targa, 2+2 and have been offered a 280zx (not 2+2) for spares. Although the bodywork is in a state, the doors, windscreen, wheels and some of the interior seem fine. Are these interchangable with my model?

The coupe 280ZX is all different from the dashboard back - doors are shorter, all glass is different, tailgate is different and all interior trim apart from the dashboard and front kick panels is different. Even the seats are different (but will fit a 2+2)! Front suspension, engine and frontal bodywork will cross over on a year compatibility basis. Engine and gearbox compatible. Don't forget that the 280ZX undergoes a substantial revision in late 1981 - facelift bumpers, engine spec. changed, gearbox changed, rear suspension and rear brakes revised, interior trim all different.........

I was curious if there is anywhere you can purchase new original seats? I have a 1980 280ZX coupe and is the only thing I can do is refurbish them?
