Can anyone tell me about these seats. Looks like impala brackets underneath. They have no latches to make fold.

Does anyone know what a pair of true '67 buckets with headrest are worth if you can find them? I read that only 1609 were ordered in '67, true??

What is the model year for the covers you are installing?

Here’s something I haven’t seen covered in this thread. What about the rubber bumpers on the back of 1968 A body seats? Every original unrestored set I’ve seen while paying attention to them (including mine and googled images) have only one bumper installed. All ‘69-72 I’ve seen have two on each seat.

this is because in 67 & 68 seats, the seatback lock/latch mechanism is on the outboard side of the seat and it provides a hard stop for the back on that side, so there is no bumper needed.

The other side does need a bumper under it to keep the person in the seat from pushing that side of the seat back back to far and bending/breaking the frame.

69-72 the seatback lock mechanism is in the center of the seatback, So both bumpers are necessary.

An interesting note... "most" unrestored 66's I've seen have a larger triangular shaped bumper on one side and a regular oval one on the other side. Not sure what thats for, but I've noticed it on nearly all 66 seats i've done, but ONLY on 66's

Re: Ultimate Bucket Seat Guide and Identification 1966-1972

In my cabin there are spots on the seat - a mix of sweat and mouse urine. Or something like that. I do not know how to clean it all up. It may be easier to do everything with a new upholstery.

Love my Chevy.

Re: Ultimate Bucket Seat Guide and Identification 1966-1972

I'm trying to ID these bucket seats that were in a 1964 SS Chevelle when it was purchased. I do know they are not for a 1964 Chevelle as I trashed PUI and Legendary seat covers before I measured them. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

Those are 63/64 corvair/Nova/f85 seats. They look the same as a-body seats at a glance, but they are wider than a-body seats.

Re: Ultimate Bucket Seat Guide and Identification 1966-1972

About the power seat tracks, correct me if I'm wrong but the one pictured on the left is correct for '70-'71 but I was told that the one on the right with two actuators (one on each side) and more cables is supposedly a '72 only model
