Bench to bucket conversion

I've had my 65 El Camino for about a year and I really do not like the bench seat. It may be that it was just over-stuffed at some point but I really can't get a good seating position.

I occasionally see seats on Ebay. There is a pair on there now that came from a 65 GTO and priced at close to $800.

My questions are:

Do you think I will be happier with Buckets? My first new car was a 65 Malibu SS, and I don't remember having trouble getting a comfortable driving position. But that was 54 years ago.

Is $800 a reasonable price for a set that will need a lot of restoration? I'm assuming that I could spend another $500 or more to restore them.

What modification are need to the floor to convert from bench to bucket?
