Where can I buy Orginal Seats? 1984 CJ7 black/orange

Hey guys

I just got my first CJ

I didnt realize the passenger seat is the original seat in good condition

the driver seat has been replaced with a generic black "best" seat

I like em both to be honest but when i was told the passenger style and color pattern was a rare breed i figured i would try to restore the jeep to its true form

any takers?

The seat in question looks to be a "high back" style thats black leather (pleather?) with orange welting ...

Looks like an original seat, but it looks re-upholestered/recovered. I've never seen one like that.

That is called "piping", and it's not factory.

Talk to a good local interior shop about matching the seat covers. They should be able to do the piping for you.

Yes, it's OEM. Looks like an 85 Spring Special.....rare indeed.
You will not find new seats made like the older ones. The aftermarket stuff is too thick in the seat and you sit too high. I'm old school and like the smaller non reclining versions better (76 to 90).

Piping was used OEM on the seats. My Laredo and reg blk seats have it.

Honestly, there is a greater chance that someone will have a full set with great passenger and rear, but a ripped driver seat, and want to buy your good one seat, than someone having a single mint seat and wants to sell it.....it could happen, but IF they know what they have, it will be priced stupid high. I would sell the one seat and get a full set of reg factory seats if it were me. plus your CJ is not a spring special...just has that seat. E-bay and craigs list seem to be the sources. Forums like this too of course.

Correct. All the seats in my 85 Laredo were mint with the exception of the drivers bottom section. A local upholsterer matched it and did a damn good job.

I have original 1985 Spring Special seats, black with orange piping, embossed CJ logo. Driver's seat bottom has some tears, but passenger and rear seat in very good condition. I'm not at home now, but can send you some pictures next week if you're interested. I'm near Richmond Virginia.

1985 Spring Special seats

Don't suppose you still have the 1985 Spring Special seats and are willing to part with a back seat are you?

def look like a spring edition seat.

want soem bad news? they aren't easy to find (as you may have already guessed

there was literally one perfect one and one bad one at a swap meet her in Puyallup 2 weeks ago. I almost picked them up, but thought "what the hell am I going to do with one good seat?"

so, again, bad that I missed out, but they are out there.

in all honesty, I don't think they match your jeep well. I'd buy new Bestops, and sell the SE seat.
