Default Alcantara Vaders- what are they worth?

I am thinking of switching over to a racing bucket and I know these seats are desirable and really rare but I cant even find listings of what people sell them for. I have the front and complete rears with no imperfections. No door panels though.

Any ideas?

I would say $1500-$2k. Just guessing.

That is what I was thinking, I was just trying to avoid being "that guy" and listing stuff for insane amounts.

those are nice, prepare for a quick sale. And off topic, is your car smelly? you have a yellow pine forest in there.

I'd say keep them, if you ever want to put the car back to stock-ish and sell, it will be worth a good bit more with the proper seats in it

If you're going full retard and gutting the car/roll cage etc., then that's a different story.

Good luck either way.

HAHAHA! That was the PO's doings. Luckily the car did not have them in there when i purchased it. I hate fake air fresheners. Keep your car clean and it shouldn't smell like anything!

Yeah I would imagine that a stock car with these would yield big bucks, but this car is sort of bastardized already so Recaros Buckets and some weight reduction coming soon!

I really want some recaros but the cost is way outside my budget for a want and not a need. Corbeaus seemed like a decent alternative. I know quality is not close, but at half the price, its an option.

Only issue I see is that they are early 95 style seats. They lack the side bolster support of later seats and have an uglier headrest design (imo). Your are showing bolster foam failure on the passenger side (cankles), I imagine the driver side to be worse.

Without upclose shots of cloth and amaretta condition it is hard to tell you what they are really worth. Given the rarity, there are suckers out there that would pay too much overlooking the condition though.

$1200-1500 depending on actual condition and how long you are willing to hold out. Anything close to $2k would have to include matching door panels.

Braymond knows his interiors but I don't know the 'cankle' area of a Vader.

The lower driver's bolster has foam damage under the suede and could use some selective plumping. It's lacking the original contour.

I would put a price of $1,200 on those and expect them to sell after 1 month.
