72 chevelle bucket seats

Anyone selling some bucket seats that aren't an arm and leg? Dont care If they need to be reupholstered just as long the frame hasn't rotted thru like some buckets I've found. Will 64-65 chevelle bucket seats fit my 72?

I sold my bench seat thinking I'd snatch some bucket seats really quick... and yes I know I know I'm going to have to weld in new brackets for buckets since I'm going from bench to bucket... I got them already just need some bucket seats... any help would be appreciated it

Re: 72 chevelle bucket seats

just keep a eye on craigslist and other places like facebook. have you looked at the pro car bucket seats? they look similar to the factory buckets and they are brand new.

66-72 are dimensionally the same.
No headrest 66-68
Release button moved around before 69.
Early seats 66/67 may not have even had locking backs?
Metal lower cover shells on early seats also 66/67 as well as back
Maybe some slightly different bucket seats could work - remember years ago looking up Grand Prix seats (69-72) they were
apparently slightly different, but should have bolted in. But Grand Prix buckets as well as Impala buckets not exactly easy to find either.

What do you consider an arm and a leg? Might want to include your location as shipping bucket seats is in the $300.00-$400.00 range. You are best off with 69-72 seats.

66-72 are similar... Springs (and therefore cover pattern/fitment) differ between many models. Can usually be used after minor modifications
66-68 did have optional headrests, but not common. 69 went to standard headrest. There are differences between 60-72 headrests, but only matter if you are looking for 100% correct.

1966 did not have locking backs, 67's did (Fed requirement?).

66-72 Cutlass, Lemans/GTO/Skylark, Nova, Impala/Caprice, Monte Carlo, Grand Prix, Toronado, Riviera and Cadillac used the same basic seats. The tracks differed depending on the floor pans (so Cutlass/Lemans/Skylark/Monte (and grand prix?)) will swap in. Impala/Nova, etc will need Chevelle A-body tracks (available repro)Ö But the springs are slightly different on some models (Cutlass thicker at the top of the back than a Chevelle, etc).

Might not help, but why not place a "wanted" ad on Craigslist. I have picked up a few deals over the years. A few years ago (maybe more than a few), when seats were typically in the $400-$500 range, I placed an ad and was contacted by a guy selling 69 GTO buckets in decent shape, $50 for the pair... Aggravating waiting for him to get off work that afternoon... A friend was looking for 64/65, placed an ad and was offered nice 67 set for $75... Found another guy that had 68 GTO buckets in his '69 Camaro, $75/pair...

You have to be patient, and lucky, but you can still find them...


You should post your location.

Yeah I'm located in central valley of California.


I think I found some buckets from a 66 chevelle just waiting to hear back from the guy selling them... I'd like to spend no more than 700 for a pair of restorable buckets

Re: 72 chevelle bucket seats

Personally, I would hold out until you find some 69-72 style buckets. A set will come up.

Re: 72 chevelle bucket seats

The set BLM posted looked like a very good deal at $650 with fairly new vinyl covers, of course when I was looking couldn't find much, after buying 2012 camaro seats I found 69 GTO seats in driver quality for $450

I wasn't planning on selling, but I have a nice set of '69 GTO/Lemans seats cores that I'd consider selling for $$650-$700. I can look at them and try to send pictures over the weekend if you were interested. I am located outside of Sacramento, so depending of your location, maybe a few hours to drive here...

I was holding on to them for a future project ('66 El Camino?) but that's probably not going to happen...
