Are these SVT seats? (pictures)

Craigs list add in my area says 04 SVT seats but they look like the same seats i have in my 07 crank, color, little pocket behind the passanger seat and everything.

Did they put the better SVT seats from the 04 into the 07s or is this guy mistaken?



I was thinking the SVT had leather, 2 tone or somthing different then this?

nope, those arent SVT Seats. The SVT seats had leather with red or blue inserts or full leather(recaro).

The seat design is the same, they may be like SVT seats, but like everyone here mentioned they are not Original SVT seats. The first clue is the Seat cover, second the SVT driver seat was electric, there was no hand crank. Also the SVT seats had side airbags on the outer sholder.(Left driver and right passenger)

Well i knew they looked a little different in some of them being all leather or 2 tone but what threw me was this picture. These look like SVT but they have a similar crank, does it raise and lower the bench like mine does?

These look like a cross between the SVT and the ones i have. They have the same shape but are 2 tone with leather and the airbag.

I dont want the crank style, i want the adjustable bottom bolster. The crank type hurts my back, like my stock ones.



You can clearly see these have a crank





These are what i have in mine now. They kinda have a 2 tone look, but are all cloth.

Not only do they not have the blue or red middle, but they look like they been being used as they sit there.

EDIT: hey those are the exact same seats that are in my girls 03 zx3, I mean the exact same seats.

They may be bolted onto a different rail set.
That is the SVT seat cover with the bolster knob on the side and the Up/Down switch on the front side cover, but I don't understand why there is a crank.

^^actually a smart idea if one were to swap svt seats in their car but didnt want to or didnt know how to wire up the switch. I didnt, but i set mine where i liked it.

Those red & black seats are the same exact seats that are in my 03 SVTF.. minus the crank thing!

The only thing that is powered for movement is the up down switch, that's it! So whats the crank for in those pix? Looks like modified seats to me. Ones at some point that went in a car without power for the seat or something I suppose? Strange!
