I finally found a set of leather that looked fresh enough to get, so I’ve gone a little farther with my Intrepid/Concord/300M construction…kind of like legos, only more expensive.





Now I just have to find rear dark grey 300m seats in decent condition. That shouldn’t be as hard, since it’s the front seats that are usually worn bad enough that I would never consider putting them in the trep.

Those are concorde seats...are you sure you want the 300m seats in the rear...they won't match up.

Yep, these seats came out of a 2000 Concord. Gotta love eBay. You’re right though Gorm, I meant Concord rear seats, not 300m. since they are a different pattern it would look funny to have M rear and Concord front leather.

Yep, that’s the plan. I had my eyes open for a full set of 300m seats for some time now, but unfortunately they either had the side airbags and therefore were an arm and a leg, they were bad shape, or they were being sold by a company that didn’t ship. Also since my standard base cloth seats were in nearly immaculate condition, I really didn’t want to settle for leather seats that didn’t look nearly new too. So when I saw these Concord seats I just went for it.

Nice.

I was at the yard yesterday and was gonna stag me some seats. Had them out except for the 2 bolts in the back of each front seat. I couldnt get them out without moving the seat up and I didnt have my jump-pack; so I had to settle for just the steering wheel.

Thanks for the comments guys. It strikes me every time I do something new on the Intrepid how well it’s coming together. Especially since I’ve never really had a specific goal for what I wanted it to look like, and originally never intended it to be more then a comfortable daily driver. Obviously things have changed a little. Getting my hands on rears that are “sleeper-worthy” should be comparatively easy to finding specifically a left front that is in good condition, since the rears are generally used way, way less.

Putting the backs in is a bit harder than the fronts, on the bottom take the mounting braket off your seats and put in on the 2nd gen bottom, a little cutting is required. the top needs to be trimmed to fit correctly, but it does look nice when you are done.

Love the Special wheels.

I can’t remember if it’s in the how-to or not (now look I’m too lazy to look) but I remember reading somewhere that the front seats were a bolt on, but the back seat needed a little massaging to fit.
The M wheels do look ridiculously good on a 1g. After seeing the trep with them, there’s no way I would want to put any sort of aftermarket rim on it.

I was working on my new sig this morning and ran across a pic I had done in May of 2003. A member asked me to put 300 Special wheels on his 1st gen Sport:



I thought it looked great back then and even better in real life.

I do love black cars, I have had three, they are a pain to keep clean but look so nice when they are.
