    Default D Seats

    Just picked up a72 D Super 5S last week and wondering what to do with it!.However I notice that the front seats
    have short backs plus the backs are operated by a lever.Now Ive had about 15 D,s over the years ranging from 67_75 but none with seats like this.Please can someone enlighten me?

    Pictures would help Woody, but I've seen front seats from an Austin 1800 used as replacements in a D

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Hi,
    I think the front seats had a lower back til about 1965/66, and the lever at the side is to tip the seat back backwards. This was replaced by a black plastic wheel around the same time.

    Cheers

    Hi Woody,

    These seats are not correct for your car. They are from a 68 or earlier as 69 model year onward got a round knob for the reclining adjustment.

    1972 model year DSuper and DSpecial seats are the same. If you want to change them and it helps I have some targa ones from a DSuper ones here as well as some cloth or vynal ones from a DSpecial.

    Cheers,

    Mark...
