I bought a pair of the GTB seats for my '68. They are very nice. A little pricey though. I see you are in KC, MO. I live in Blue Springs if you want to look at them. The nearest dealer is in the Chicago area. The pictures of my car are older and do not show the new seats. Drop me an email if you want to swing by.
I just took delivery of a set of Corbeau GTS II seats. I had them upolstered in white leather with black/white houndstooth center inserts. They look great! I'll post a picture on the Interior page on my web site tonight.
The GTS II is very much a sports car seat. The side bolsters are tall and definitely hold you in the seat.
I put one up on a stool last night and watched TV for a while. It felt a lot more comfortable than the original stockers. They also have a rake adjustment so you don't have to sit straight up. I can't wait to get them in.

JMcDonald - I am 6.0 ft and about 195 pounds (I won't admit to the other 5 lbs). I would say that I have a medium-sized frame. If I had a much bigger frame, the seats would probably be too small. I have a brother that is 6.5 ft tall and has a large frame and I don't know how well he is going to fit in these seats. If you can, I would recommend some test sitting before you buy.
Dale and Scoop - the GTS II seats were $320 each and the custom upolstery charge from Corbeau for the white leather was $340 per seat. Total cost per seat to Corbeau was about $720 (including TX sales tax @ 8.25%). I also had to buy two yards of houndstooth cloth (from Year One) at $60/yd. Therefore, total cost of each seat was $780. I bought the seats from a local Corbeau dealer, so I didn't have to pay for shipping.
To me, the decision boiled down to spending about $1,000 for parts and labor to fully restore the old houndstooth covered seats or $1,440 for new seats customized to match the rest of my interior. I felt that the additional $440 was worth it in the long run.
BTW, my old front seats are for sale if anyone wants them.

I don't know who you were asking about but here goes. I bought the GTB seats and the seat tracks. I am 6'0" and with the seat all the way back the pedals are almost out of reach. These seats travel farther than any seat I have ever seen. As for "pricey" they ran me $1125 for both seats, 2 seat tracks and enough extra black cloth to cover the rear seat. It took them awhile to get here because believe it or not, black is a special order color! They do go so far as to make sure that all of the material was cut from the same piece so that all of the material matches. They bolt right in using the same holes and are very comfortable. The only thing that I do not like is that there is no quick release to tilt the seat forward for rear seat access. But with the amount of travel those tracks have it opens the rear up nicely.
I do not know about other seat tracks. They do have several seat tracks available. Check out their web site. www.corbeau.com. The GTB seats just about the most expensive seats they offer. I put them in my convertible because I needed a seat that had a low back height back yet would recline. There are very few seats that will do this. If you are looking to put them in a coupe and the back height is not an issue then they offer cheaper seats. Damn convertibles are expensive!
The seats are great. They really "suck" you in. I have had more comments about those seats than anything else on the car. I ordered enough fabric to cover the rear seat when I ordered the fronts. I ordered mine from a place in IL. It took quite awhile to get them in since black is a special order coler. Go figure. They were well worth the wait however.
