Light grey/blue and in good condition.

Not exactly what you´re looking for but a suggestion if nothing else turns up, by the way...i´m gonna check with my friend in dalarna
but thats gonna take a couple of weeks.

I´ve got a question for you though - looking for a Cortina Mk3 GT/GXL/xl (One cant have to many of those), if something in nice condition
turns up in finland give me a "call" here.
sorry but they don`t fit into a coupe, ;)

Totally so, unfortunally. The Taunus coupe has a backseat which is all its own with a deep sculpted bucket design that is somewhat both narrower and higher at the top and the inner width at the backseat is also different between 2- and 4-door bodies. However, the matching front seats to this can be found also in some 2-door sedans (propably 4-doors too, but then they lack the seat mechanisms that fold ahead - also, on later models the locks are built into the back of the seat). Those cars came depending on model year and equipment level with either the same low bucket seats in front or a style with built-in head rests, which are too high to fit in the coupe. Therefore, the next alternative would be to use Granada front seats which are practically a bolt-in conversion if you use the Taunus seat chassis and very few would notice the difference if all seats get new cloth (unfortunally no original textiles can be found for this). The are however a slight bit wider so it´s a tight fit and you end up sitting about 8-10 cm higher too, but they are on the other hand more comfortable and side grip support is great :). Although the separate head rests on those are a tight fit to the roof headliner when folded ahead, so you might want to remove those.

By the way, should you go with the full rebuild of a pair of Taunus/Cortina front seats and those are buckets, i suggest you start by reinforcing the bare frames with some steel plates in the upper corners as the thin steel pipes tend to break from metal fatigue as they bend back and forth when kept all the time in a laidback "sporty" position over the years, speaking from experience :banghead::whistling:.
"If it jams - force it! If it breaks - it needed replacing anyway!" (sett på verktygslåda :D )
