iirc, the rear seats in the GT500 are the same as those in the GT (as long as they are both convertibles/hardtops and both have leather/cloth

its only the front seats that are different

i think you are getting confused

AFAIK,

-the coupe and vert rear seats differ (vert rear seats dont fold down because of the boot)

-the GT500 front seats have extra side bolstering compared to the GT/V6 seats

-The Bullitt shares front seat frames with the GT500

-there is no difference in front seats between a coupe and a vert of the same model



so if you need rear seat covers, you only need to specify vert or coupe

i tried to get prices from several places on seat covers for the 10 gt500 for my car. i was told by one dealer that they were never successful in getting pricing form ford on the new seats. if you have to go to ford for the gt500 covers they are crazy expensive. my 05 dove gray vert they wanted $900 for the seat bottom panel for rears only.

I was told that the frames inside the gt500 and gt are the same, only the foam differs. the same place told me that i could just get gt500 seat foam and be fine. I'd love to find soem 10 gt500 seats with the grabber blue stripes for my car.

I have to friends with vert's and they look the same has my coupe! The only thing i could see being different is the vert might be braced inside in case of a roll over?
