64 corvair buckets

i picked up some buckets from a 64 corvair to throw into the chevelle instead of the 90s dodge seats in it now. my question is where can i get new covers for them? i dont know of many corvair sites. if you guys could point me in the right direction that would be great thanks

Re: 64 corvair buckets

Corvair.com is Clark's Corvair Parts. They were one of the pioneers in reproducing seat covers as GM had them made - actual heat formed vinyl patterns. You can buy Corvair designed seat covers there. But, you may find that the seat basic design is the same as the A body cars, and you can order more appropriate Chevelle covers that fit the Corvair sourced seats. I'll bet that is the case.

Re: 64 corvair buckets

64 Corvair seats equal 64 Chevelle seats....including the chrome trim pieces on the sides. I found rechromed ones from a Corvair restoration supplier.

Not sure about the mounting tracks though.

Re: 64 corvair buckets

so if the seats are the same i could just buy the seat covers from opgi for a 64 chevelle without having to modify the seat cover and what not?

Re: 64 corvair buckets

Oughta work......might want to get new seat foam unless it's holding up well. I replaced mine. Just to make sure, let me take a couple of measurements tomorrow for you. I can post those and some photos of the 64 chevelle seat tracks.

Re: 64 corvair buckets

Do the Corvair seats replace the 65 bucket too?

Re: 64 corvair buckets

From what I read in the other post, I wouldn't trust any Corvair seats to bolt in and accept Chevelle covers without a side by side comparison.

I do know that the chrome side trim pieces from the Corvair seats fit my Chevelle seats perfectly.
