Hello and Happy New Year.
I want to sell this rare Recaro bucket seat which was intended to use in the 914. I have 3 of them for my 914-6 - so I let one go.
You can also mount them in the 911 but there are some differences. The seat buttom is cut out (original!) and the and the angle of the back seat is different compared to a "normal" bucket seat. I have added a picture to compare these 2 kind of seats. Also the headrest is smaller to fit in the 914 rear and the side bolster has a different shape.

3 inches of the seam was well repaired at the side bolster and there is a very small hole in the seat cushion. I really believe the seat can be used as is.
Price incl. shipping, paypal fees etc is $1650,-
Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks Alex

Looks like what you have For Sale is a Passenger Seat

I have a set of Factory Recaros and the Drivers Seat is not cut out and the Passenger seat is. Also the shape of the side bolsters are different.

There is no reason that I know of that this couldn't be used on the Drivers Side though

No it is the driver seat - like the one in the add of Recaro.
The reason why the bottom is cut out is to get the opportunity to sit lower. All the 3 seats I have - have the cut out of the bottom.
I think the passenger seat in the Recaro add is a "normal" Recaro seat also used in 911 etc.

Best Alex

Did you sell this seat? Or do you still have it?
