In one word: Alfaholics.

They have available 1600 GTA replica seats in correct vinyl, and you can have them as fixed or folding seats. Cost 750 UK pounds. Check out their website, look at internal trim for coupes and then go to the GTA section. All the details are there. Dave

The Alfaholic seats, whilst I am sure are perfect GTA replicas in every regard, are not the same as your photograph. They have vertical pleating in the sitting areas whereas your photograph shows horizontal pleating on the backrest and no pleating whatsoever on the seat. Where did you get this image from?

The seat shown is a tipo33 type seat which was fitted to GTAm and GTA/junior. The Alfaholics seat is a replica of a early GTA stradale seat and there is a tube frame version (a la Zagato) of a corsa seat for the early GTA. Another version has a fiberglass shell with the grey vertical pleating (as shown in the original homologation papers) - I believe a replica of that is available from Roman Tucker.

Hi Alle, can you speculate from the attached pics the type of seat that came to me with GTA 752507. I've assumed it was ALFA/AD seat but have nothing to compare to.

Thanks

Ken

I would say they are definitely original tipo33/Autodelta seats.

I found the image on ebspares.co.uk.
JCDK, thanks for your help! I will try to contact autoparco some
how (probably will not be so easy because last time I ordered parts to my NSX from Japan it was like hell because of their huge laguage problem!)

Hi, why not try and find someone on this BB that is fluent in the Language and see if they can facilitate for you. Or as Alle suggested, Roman Tucker at Roman Auto Prep where the language is English. http://www.romanautoprep.com/

FWIW

BB Member Tiger0529 has offered to help people with parts purchases from Japan in the past, although he's a less frequent visitor these days. I would be very surprised if these were not being made in Italy.

You are right - further I believe the `Japanese` seats are actually made in Italy, anyway not in Japan and nearly always not exclusive to Japan.
