Gentlemen,
Some advice please.......Can i fit S2 HF front seats into my Series 1 1.3s coupe without any major changes to the fixings.

Also could some one please advise me on what is the best tyre size to fit 5.5x13 wheels. I understand that the hieght of the tyre can some times be an issue. Thank you..... Trev.

175/80 13 will give -1.6% diameter compared with 165/80 14. Try to keep overall diameter as close to original to keep gearing correct(etyres.co.uk have a usefull size comparison tool) and dont go too wide or the steering will be very heavy. I think the hf seat runners are different to s2 runners and would have to be welded in.

Hello Trev

With respect to the author of the previous post, you will know that you are seeking to get a 13" tyre to give comparable gearing to the original 145/80x14 of a Series 1 coupé.  A 175/80x13 might be suitable as that was the size fitted to the 6x13" Cromodora of the Fanalone(?)  Whatever section of tyre you do decide upon is up to you, but I would strongly recommend that you stick with an 80 aspect profile, rather than go to a lower profile.  The sidewall compliance of an 80 aspect tyre works in conjunction with the spring and damping rates to give suspension and handling characteristics of the original factory spec.

S2 HF seats and runners might involve some welding as the runners are horizontal in the S1, whereas they decline to the rear in an HF. (The width apart might be different too?)

Anyone recognise these seats? Is this car not a fulvia sport?

No - it's definitely a Citroen SM.

I think the Fulvia Sport interior mirror is on top of the dash

Evidence for an SM ... attached is the same picture but with better definition and with a Citroen SM interior to the side for comparison. Note the distinctive seat and features such as how the rear leather of the seat curves around to the side; the adjuster arm and the headrest shape. Also note the passenger door pull.
However there is a Lancia connection ... the person pictured is Alain Delon who by all accounts liked Lancias and campaigned a Stratos as well as doing various films involving Lancias (in seven films listed at http://www.geocities.ws/cleanstream/lancia/onfilm/index.htm)
