66 Chevelle Back Seat - Other A Frame GM Cars that will fit

Hi

I have a 1966 Chevelle Malibu that did not have a back seat when i bought it. I have been looking for a while, but they are few and far between. I was told that i could also possibly use the back seat out of a 1966-1967: LeMans, Skylark, Cutlass (although, i'd need the built in arm rests), and possibly GTO.

Does anyone have any experience with swapping these seats? if so, when reupholsetering, would you buy the chevelle set or for the actual make?

Thanks,

Kevin

Arm rests on a 66 screw to the door panel. They are not made into the seat.

66-67 Lemans, tempest, GTO back seat will interchange of the same body style (Hardtop) not sure if the sedan seat is the same or different.

Skylark, and cutlass seats are narrower and have different style rear arm rests.

I put a "Wanted" list on CList, for a Chevelle Back Seat, and ended up getting a call from a guy that had six seats from Pontiac LeMans. Fit perfect, although the vinyl pattern is different, but the seat is the same size. I had planned on reupholstering it anyway...

Thanks,

Kevin

I don't think it would. I believe the bottom is different.

Kevin, could you send a pm to me with info about the guy who had the seats? I need one also. Does the bottom seat have the half moon trans tunnel cut out? Thanks

The four door rear seat bottom section is different. It is rounded on the bottom and leaves a gap of around 2 inches on either side. They are very hard to find.
