What seats fit which Eagles?

Eagle Seat Interchange
There were several different styles of seats offered in Eagles. This topic will show the different styles, and discuss interchange between cars. Photos will be added at a later date. This topic will NOT discuss putting in seats from other vehicles, such as Jeep Cherokees, since each case is unique.
The information presented here is based on what I have found on Eagles I have owned over the years, or was derived from dealer brochures, etc.
Sport seats. These were high-back bucket seats. They were found only in the Series 50 cars, i.e., SX-4 and Kammback. Since they were used in 2 door cars, they tilt forward to allow access to the rear seat. Keep this in mind if you are planning on putting other seats in these cars.

Wide-body seats: These were standard in the Series 30 cars, i.e., the 2-door Coupe, 4-door Sedan, and Wagon. They were available in cloth or leather, and Power or non-Power operated. The seats in the 2-door Coupe also tilt forward to allow rear seat access.

The leather seats were available in 2 versions: regular, and “pillow top.”

The Sport seats and the wide body seats all used 5 mounting studs that went thru the floor pan. One corner mount had 2 studs; the other corners had 1 stud. There are rectangular reinforcing plates on the bottom of the floor pan, one for each stud.
The Power seat mounts used 4 studs, one in each corner. The double stud mount was eliminated due to the design of the power seat base.
