Hey fellow Datsuneers,

 

Please take a look at the attachments and let me know if you believe these seats are real, or fake.

 

Thank you for your help!

Those are real seats. I'm pretty sure they are physically in our current plane of existence.

 

Did Nismo make those seats though? Probably not. They are definitely not an OEM offering on any car Nissan ever let NISMO modify.

 

Depending on the price though, they might be comfortable seats and could totally be worth it.

The question then becomes, what are they worth and are they safe?  I will check them out tomorrow after work.

Any markings or tags on the bottom? Part numbers or otherwise?

I will check tomorrow.  They said these seats were pulled out of a '69 Firebird, which makes me think they are total replicas.  I will take a look at them and if they are built with a metal frame, and the price is right, I will probably get them for now.

Everything I could find points to ebay origin fakes, just a cheap seat a company throws NISMO on. Those ones even look cheap. Might make good gaming chairs if the price is right. A Metal frame doesnt mean they are safe.

I bought 350z power/heated leather seats instead of the fake nismos.  Now I need to figure out how to wire them up.
