Selling a pair of dark brown leather sport seats from a 1980 SC with ~90k miles. These have the tilt "lever" not the "knob." Sliders and hardware are in excellent working condition. Driver side bolster showing some discoloration from wear, but no tears anywhere on either seat. Located in Atlanta, GA. Will ship at buyers expense.

THESE ARE NO LONGER FOR SALE (Please read post #28)

Really good deal.

Hopefully go to an enthusiast that needs them and not a flipper that will resell in flebay for 5k.

Ok holy Jesus, I'm getting tons of offers over $1000 on these things. Seriously guys, how much do these typically go for?

OK, I grossly miscalculated the value of these folks. I'm seriously not looking to rip anybody off or anything, but I'm going to have to pump the brakes on the sale for now until I figure out what to do with them.

Very valuable since it looks to be original and does not need recovering and comes with sliders. $5K is fair in todays market.

They could probably turn out quite nice with some cleaning and treatment, but 5k seems a little high to me...

$2-2.5k, value is based on what resto costs are, excellent ones maybe $4k- a few are listed on eBay for $5k but they have been 4 sale forever

Pretty obvious Stratofortress should have done more research before posting. But ultimately the multiple offers and background bidders offering more than the ask are a symptom of the marketplace. It would take a strong character to stick to his first asking price and take the licks for a lack of research.
Overall seems lime MJE is the real looser here, but that's part and parcel of the hobby these days.

Gentlemen, those of you who expressed your concern about not honoring my price...

Imagine, if you will, you are 28 and just acquired a 1980 911 that you first sat in at your uncle's house when you were 8 years old. Every year I visited him I also secretly visited the 911 in the basement garage. I never quite knew what color the car was as it was always dark, and the car hasn't seen sunlight in over 18 years. The first car I rowed through the gears on a stick shift, the first sports car I ever sat in, the first Porsche I ever touched. The car that essentially spring-boarded me into this horribly unhealthy addiction that all of us here have to experience something unearthly in human transportation.

The car, even twenty years later, consumed my mind. One day earlier this year, I was feeling particularly frisky and made a cheeky offer to my uncle for his 911, knowing very well he wouldn't accept it. It was like I woke up and knew what I had to do, like it was an impulse. I knew he kept it as an ode to his most fun and free years, to those good times in life you can't help but hope you'll have again. Being the wonderfully nice person he is, he wholeheartedly accepted my humble offer, promising to cherish it for the rest of my life, to have it up and running one day soon so that he can drive it again, because I know that's what I would want myself. Seeing it being towed out of the garage (the brake pistons were stuck to the rotors) and seeing it in sunlight for the first time, even with 18 years of patina, I actually cried, and then I hugged him.

Now, I am in the midst of getting this car ready to diagnose, to see if the engine rotates by hand. If so, I have quite a few things to tend to to get it moving on its own as I stated in my edit on my first post. I sit in it everyday just like I did when I was 8, except now in a cheap, decrepit & decade old Sparco seat. But now, I have this new excitement, and can almost feel the wind on my arm driving in the North Georgia mountains just like my uncle did in the 80s.

I want more than anything to have this car running again, and unfortunately my pockets aren't necessarily deep enough to justify having a 911 right now, but I am anyway, because when I look back when I'm my uncles age, I can say I did something not only for me, but for someone who's given me one of the greatest gift a lifer automotive addict could dream of.

Yes, a couple thousand dollars will make a huge difference for me right now, to finance bringing this beauty to life, and I hope you all can understand that.

18 years of dust...

If those seats are original to the car you might want to reconsider selling them. As you can see they won't be getting cheaper or more available and the condition is very good. Original and correct cars are very desirable and valuable and yours has personal history. It's your call though.

You are entitled to make a mistake as you learn the ropes of the forum boards. If those seats came with the car DO NOT SELL. You will regret it later.

Stratofortress do not sell those seats ! They are original to the car and they must stay with the car. Yeah you didnt research this thing properly but you have a context now and a reason not to sell. Your uncle gave you the car because he knew you would drive it. This is an amazing community and perhaps some Pelicans local to you would be willing to help figure out exactly what you need to do to get your car back on the road.
Post in tech and don't be afraid to ask. SC looks sharp, get it back on the road !
At the end of the day, get help first from someone who knows 911s then figure out what $ you need.
