I was asked by my GT concierge what should be made available for the new GT and at the top of my list was seat covers. When the ‘05-‘06 GT was new Ford Performance offered some very durable black canvas seat covers and I’ve had these on my ‘06 GT for over a decade now. Both those covers (photo below) and the leather seats underneath still look brand new on my 12 year old 22,000 mile GT. I find those covers very comfortable, non-slip, and cooler in our AZ heat than the uncovered seat. I have probably let a couple thousand people sit in my GT’s and they get a big kick out of that. But it’s also a lot more wear and tear on the seats if they’re not covered.
So....if you own a new GT or have an allocation for one please post up and answer -
If Ford offered black seat covers similar to the ones they sold for the old GT would you buy them?
My answer is obviously HELL YES and the sooner the better before auto show fans wear my seats out. If enough owners express an interest Ford may make them available. All the best.
Yer not alone. I'm coming up on 60Kmi in my car, and I like to brag at C&C that "I drive it daily." I've still got a ways to go to catch up with Jeff. However, I did buy the seat covers made by Christa, and I sewed a pocket in the lumbar part of the seat cover for a hand bulb-pump lumbar support air bag, which I really like on long cross-country drives. Curious, do the NFGT seats have a lumbar adjustment?I’d probably order a set, but to be honest, if the new car’s seats are as well made as the old, I don’t think covers are needed: After 48,000 miles my 06 seats still look good with just a little patina. Is it just me who likes a car to show that it’s actually been used?
