    So dual power seats total about 130 lbs. And mine don't even work properly.
    That should be with power recline as well. My Thunderbird (and I assume your 20th) has power recline, which adds a bit more weight.

    At least my car's seats work...makes it worth the weight penalty.

    Yes, power everything, including recline. Memory function and the seat is also heated. Yeah, of course the passenger works fine cuz it's never been used, the driver's side need coaching to move the seat forward/back and up/down in front or back, I forget.

    I do have a spare functional power seat track for the driver side. It's heavy, so it would probably cost $$$ to ship.

    Thanks. I actually have a spare set of 20th seats in the garage. At this point I'm looking to lose weight for drag racing, might look at the spares for ideas to make them lighter.

    Manual seat track would be a good start.
