I currently have a 1977 Grumman Tiger that is in need of a new interior. Rather than simply re-upholstering the existing seats, I would like to upgrade to the 1979 seats which I have heard are a significant improvement. If anyone has 1979 seats that they would be willing to part with, please contact me to work out the particulars. Joe Perrone,
