I tried to order a set of these seats for my '67 Nova from NNN but they couldn't get delivery confirmation from the manufacturer.
I am thinking of ordering from Summit if they confirm that they can get them in within 30 days but before I go ahead I wondered if anybody here has a set of these seats and what they think of them - esp. the quality of the adapters for Nova?
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I have the high back Elite seats in my 3rd gen, they are nice seats, But the seat mounts sit a tad too high and pricey. If your taller than 6 foot your head will rub the roof.
Other Nova owners have stated the same thing and you will be better off making your own mounts, plus save some money.
Hope this helps.

I have them also. I used there mounts and had no issues. I'm 6'5" and didn't notice the brackets being too tall in my 65'. Burt.

I made my own lower brackets because ny car was a bench seat model to begin with and also I wanted the seats to sit lower than with the Scat brackets. I have Scat Rally's. I made the brackets by formimg 1/8" by 2" steel strap to the contures of the floor and then welding them down. Then I welded tabs to the edges of the straps and drill mounting holes in the tabs to match the sliders on the seats. Here are a few photos for you:
