I think they are Recaro but I'm pretty sure if you watch the episode they mention it. Overhaulin' episodes are now available for instant viewing on Netflix as well. It's Seaason 2 episode 7 for this car.

Found this. All the info you need on the car. Seats are Cobra:

It appears this is not the first time this car hit the market. A quick Google search turned up that it hit Ebay back on 2007. It also appears that it isn't the first Overhaulin' car that has hit the market either.

There are several theories as to why people are selling them, financial, publicity, storage, etc. I guess it's one of those be careful what you wish for types of things. A blessing at first then a curse. Who knows.

The quick research that I have done states that the following cars have been sold since they appeared on the show:

Those are some ugly wheels. Never been a fan of big dubs on classics.

I've always wondered if there are quality issues with those cars considering how fast they are built. I know several of the home makeover shows have had problems.

1971 Dodge Challenger – Season 2 Episode 7 “Challenging Dodge”
1968 Olds 442 – Season 2 Episode 12 “4-4 New”
2005 Ford Mustang – Season 3 Episode 7 “Snaked”
2005 Dodge Magnum – Season 3 Episode 12 “Firey Brit”
1930 Ford Model A – Season 3 Episode 20 “Overtime”
1996 Chevy Tahoe - Season 4 Episode 4 “Overhaulin’ Bling”
