The Classic Standard Defender Front Seat was Land Rover’s first truly adjustable seats that came into use following on from the many years of production of the more basic flat style series seats.
The Classic front seats offered the driver and passengers a far superior comfort level and now with their adjustment in the seat back angle and a adjustable headrest as an “optional extra” of course this forms part of the seats supplied now regardless.
The seat squab could be adjusted to any angle, which gave you for the fist time the ability to tailor the rake of the seat back to the individual, instead of simply resting on the bulkhead as with the earlier series seats.
These seats are far sturdier than the preceding series seats and with high quality seat sliders and runners the seats became a far superior product all round. the seat could now easily be moved forward and backwards with a simple lift arm under the front of the seat cushion as you expect to find in most vehicles of this era.
To compliment this the seat basses were also removable and simply located into the rear of the seat frame and then snap locked into the front of the seat runners making it easy to access the under seat storage compartment and battery location.
The replacement seats by Exmoor Trim is offered in Pairs only, complete with Sliders/runners and all fixings as a bolt straight in pair of seats which utilise the original four mounting points in the seat box.
This Classic style stayed in production from approx 1986 right through until 2007 when the seats were then upgraded again.
As the later seat trim options came in and over time the trim standard was raised in the later years. Production seats were then offered with internal seat heaters this was then truly a big deal, heated seats in a land rover! now its very much the normal, so at Exmoor we have decided to heat all our Classic Defender front seat pairs as standard fitment.
Both seat backs and bases are heated internally and the heater wiring all clips together so you can still remove the seat bases when required. Many of the earlier vehicles never had seat heaters fitted so we also include with all our Classic Defender seats as standard with a full wiring loom for the seat heaters. These also give illuminating heater switches so you can control both seats individually with a hi & low heat option and the wiring loom includes the inline fuses a wiring instruction which you can also download.
We use a higher grade foam than originally used to increase the life span of these seats and much improved levels of comfort.
All coming together to give a great pair of Classic Seats by Exmoor.
As with all Exmoor Trim front seats these use our new Defender seat frame and are issued with full testing certificate to keep with your log book. Don’t settle for less, safety matters.
APPROVED by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). Impact tested (Millbrook Testing Ground). Approved worldwide and certification supplied with every seat.
