Default Are these seats worth selling?

Hello, I'm new so I'm hoping it's okay that I post this question here...

I recently bought a K5 that I'm rebuilding. My plan is to replace the seats with polyethylene/plastic seats on the existing pedestals for the front. Haven't completely figured out what I'm going to do to replace the bench. I'm pretty sure I'm not interested in keeping the original seats. The driver seat is ripped bad enough that the previous owner has a tarp under the seat cover - I'm afraid to even take it off.

The passenger seat and the folding rear bench are in pretty good condition - just very dirty. This is my first vehicle project so I really don't have an answer for this. Can anyone take a look at these pictures and tell me if you think the seats are worth selling - or should I just take them to the junkyard? If they are worth selling - how much do you think? Thanks!

If you got somewhere to store them, they are in good enough condition to sell. I know I would buy them if I were looking for seats... no big visual tears, barely any fade, lever look intact and not much rush on the mounting hardware.

How much would you be willing to spend if you did? I'm going to post them locally here in Phoenix on offerup and CL.

By all means - sell!

If doing a restoration to original condition the nightmare is usually the seat frames.
I've never been concerned on how the upholstery looks as you will have that made new anyways.

Restoring a 63 Studebaker Avanti and the only thing missing are the original front seat frames.

Not too sure on the price, but I would pay anywhere between 100-200 for seats, as a set that is.

I think Don is "right on the money".

K5 stuff sells pretty well around my parts, and there are always people looking.

I'd post it at 200 bucks for all, or best offer. If you don't get any bites, drop the price by $50.

Sounds good; I'll start at $200 and see what happens. Thanks for the advice!
