I’m having some mobility issues and I’d like to install a swivel but keep the factory seat. Anyone already do this or have suggestions. I don’t want to sell or let the car sit. It’s a 2010 SRT8.

Back in 1973-1974 chevy had a swivel seat option for the Malibu model. Worked really well.
Possibly look into seeing if that seat assy would adapt to the challenger seat.
Also possibly one of the seat manufactures offer a swivel seat base for modern cars.
Cuda Vic, I Just found this seat manufacturer link: ps://www.glideengineering.com
Good luck with the search..........

Most swivel I see are complete seats. Depending on your mobility, might look into a lower cost alternative

FWIW, back in the 80s we put swivel seat bases in for the captain's chairs (blue velvet!) in our Van, mainly used for facing the back, but could spin 360°. May be a way to modify something like those (if you can ever find them now).

The Problem is now DOT and Insurance reasons the Swivel Seats are weaker and can come apart easier in an Auto Accident.
As to can you put one in never heard of a true DOT Safety Approved Swivel for newer Cars... Things were different then.

I know what you mean, but I think a LOT of accessibility alterations are no where near DOT Safety Approved, at least not crash tested. But if it give people a choice instead of not being able to drive on their own, I'm all for it. As long as it doesn't endanger others, who know, I may need something someday.

Yeah I agree but was just stating why there is no Production DOT Swivel Seats for Cars today. Id love to have some in my Challenger for easier accessibility as well but that is how it is today.

Might check with the dealer. I know they can send vehicles off for conversions for disabled drivers when you buy it new, worst case they SHOULD be able to give you the name of the place they would send it off to.
