Installing Procar by SCAT Seats with Chevy Hardcore

Chevy Hardcore picked up a ’72 Monte Carlo and was in need of some reclining bucket seats but didn’t want to lose the look of the factory interior. They ended up picking out a set of Rally seats that fit perfectly with the look they were going for.

The Rally seats are great for us because they meet all of our criteria. We knew from the get go our Monte was going to be a budget street/strip car. Pulling double duty requires seats that can handle both long hauls and quick bursts down the track.

 

The Rally seats do exactly that. With aggressive bolstering on the upper and lower portions, they have no trouble holding you in place during lateral Gs or when you’re just cruising.

 

Some added benefits are the fact that they are extremely comfortable for the amount of bolstering they have. We’ve sat in many ‘racing’ seats that cause fatigue after an hour or so in the cockpit. The fatigue typically comes from not being able to recline or just the hard materials they are made out of in general.

 

In our opinion, the reasons the Rally seats is Procar’s most popular model is three-fold. First, they look the part. Take our Monte Carlo for example — while the pleat pattern on the  Rally differs slightly, it does pay a certain homage to GM’s factory styling from back in the day.

 

Second, they offer performance in a comfortable package. Take it from us, we logged some serious miles in these seats right after we installed them. We prepped the car to make the trek from So Cal up to Nor Cal and on to Las Vegas for SEMA 2018. The whole way we took bumpy back roads, went around mountains, across the desert and through city traffic – the seats were comfortable and held us in place the whole way.

 

Lastly, they come in at an astounding price point! This one was a big deal for us. As we previously mentioned, the Monte build has been budget oriented from the start, and the Rally seats start at $397 a piece! That is in their vinyl form but Procar also offers them in leather, canvas, velour and houndstooth to meet the many needs of its customers.

Chevy Hardcore also shared how they installed the Rally seats into their Monte Carlo build! Read the full article here.
