I too am looking for the collars and metal clips. I would love to get at least 1 set so I can try and have them replicated. I have a friend that runs a machine shop and he said he would be willing to try and fabricate if he had originals. Any help from anyone out there would be great

I too am looking for the collars and metal clips. I would love to get my hands on a decent set. I have a friend that runs a machine shop that said he would be willing to replicate if I can get a good set-even if to borrow. Any help would be appreciated.

Just found this thread.
Anyone ever find a source for these?
Anglo doesn't sell them anymore.

FWIW, Anglo is NOT the best place to find MGC parts...nice plates none the less.

See post 8 and 9. AFAIK NO ONE has ever made them for the NA spec cars...MGB, Midget nor MGC; 1969 only.

I read a topic in the past month or so where someone had used the headrests out of a BMW. They were about the same shape and the posts were the same distance apart. In fact they found that they would work in all 70-80 seats as well. They just used all the hardware from a salvage yard bimmer.

Do a search, maybe you'll find the post.

Which of the 6000 or so BMW models have the correct fitting headrests?
I'll attempt to ignore the sacrilege hot smiley of German parts in an English car...winking smiley

If you don't like German there's this:

In reply to # 2831297 by 33EJB You can fit some modern seats from another car that have headrests if you're not a stickler for originality. I put a pair of seats from a gen-1 Saturn sedan or wagon (don't remember which) in my '69 roadster. Easy to do and they cost $22 each at my local pick-and-pull yard. Way cheaper than re-covering your old ones.

And this is the topic about the Bimmer. I found in another post it was 2012 323i
