With a little elbow grease and forthought you can adapt any seats you want into your car. I've run Volvo seats and now have Miata seats
in my 68' beetle. Both are way more comfortable then stock seats. Your only limited by your imagination!!!!!!!

But if your must have stock the seat brackets for the front changed in the early 70's however the backs are all interchangeable (except
for the verts back seat backs)

Just my 2 pennies worth again

You can make 98 and up vw seats work just like the above mentioned seats
if you build proper mounts but the rear seat will not even come close to fitting.
You need to figure out what kind of brackets to fabricate and so on for the fronts...

Just remember newer seats can have airbags built into them......Like Jim mentioned Scat sells full custom interior kits as well as Sewfine...
