Racing seats...on a budget

I'm looking for ideas and recommendations for racing seats for my '66. I only do HPDEs, no actual racing, so they do not need to be certified. The problem I'm running into is the brackets - most only go as old as '79, and while I currently have Fox body seats in, that won't help me with new seats :-). These ones are great - Planted Seat Bracket- Ford Mustang (1964-1973) - Driver / Left - but ouch the price! Plus I'm not sure if they'll work with *all* aftermarket seats.

Off brand are ok, as long as they're safe and of decent quality - AND I can get brackets.


1966 Restomod/track car, 1973 Q-code Mach 1, 1997 F250 diesel, 2000 VW Beetle Rallycross car, 2010 Crown Vic (ex-City of Lakewood PD), 2015 Focus ST-2
