Rear seat conversion, GC Impreza

Hi everyone, I'm at a bit of a loss, and I hope someone can help. I have a veteren 93 Impreza HX sedan... (I know, I know). What I would like to know is, would a set of Legacy GT (93-96) sedan rear seats marry into my car? I want some fold downs but they are really hard to find for a GC8. Hope someone can help. Regards Tim

Tbh, can't say for sure as I don't know, but don't think the Impreza and the legacy share the same platform and Legacy's feel a fair bit roomier than Imprezas. However, the Impreza and the Forrester do, so seats from a Forrester may be a better bet but again can't say 100% for sure. Only info I could find on this was with regards to later models and the seats on those don't seem to be interchangeable.

Re: Rear seat conversion, GC Impreza

Hi well I drove up to Palmerston North and back, round trip on Saturday and picked up a set of rear fold down sets from a 93 GT Legacy, came home and with a few minor adjustments, (dremel included) got them in the car.... so it does work, I was sceptical, but everything match's up and bolts in. Now they need a re-uphoster!

Was just having a quwizz at this old post of mine, and I can now answer my own question, yes and yes, Legacy rear fold down seats fit into a GC8, MY93 - MY99 classic impreza sedan.

Upholstery colours differ markedly from the Impreza, and Legacys / Libertys.
