I have these same seats in my 66 vert,, My only change would be that i would raise them off the floor boards a little, the bottom is much lower than the factory seat, this can make it feel like you are swimming inside the car!
Honda B20 turbo powered corvair. Is it the first honda powered corvair out there?

Haven’t posted in a long time. Been at a stand still for quite some time and not much work has been done to the car. It has been a very tough decision to sell the car. This has been a father and son project so made it even more difficult. At the pace it’s been going too slow and want to send time with my dad driving and showing our CorV8 at car show that I bought a new car that is a driver. I will post pictures of my new 1966 Crown Corsa CorV8 350 that was built back in the 70’s.
This car has been sold to a great Corvair enthusiast here in the valley of Arizona. I really happy that I will be able to see this car come to life.
