I need a seat! Any Help Appreciated!

I have a 2003 Mustang GT - Medium Parchment leather seats.
Drivers seat has seen better days and one of the things on my list is fixin that up.
All other seats are manageable. Minor knicks but no tears or signs of tearing.

My question is: Does anyone know where I can find a drivers seat in medium parchment leather for UNDER 500 F$&(*@ DOLLARS?
Im sure my foam can still be useable so i just need the leather upholstery i think.

any help would be nice.
thanks

I have one I'll give you for free. Only problem is it looks like Bin Laden flew a plane into it.

I was not impressed with prices on used seats a few years ago when I did mine. Cobra seats in good shape but expensive, GT seats at a good price but not that great of shape and would just need replaced again in a couple years, new leather upholstery kits go for $800-ish and I don't mess with that so there goes some more money on top of that.

Found a set of S197 seats, front only in 9/10 condition for $700. One of the best decisions I've ever made dude. The color matches 99% perfect and unlike an aftermarket seat they look like they belong there.


2001 GT Convertible
/1967 Coupe
All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4

I know that budgets are budgets, but if you have to put together a little more $$ so you can do it right the first time - whatever that might consist of, then that's the right move imo. On your stated budget this is do-able but I think you will need to be patient and spend some time looking for the right seat. It may take a month or twould before it pops up on Ebay or somewhere.
