Thanks for the reply, but what I really need are the measurements and what materials I might need to mount the bucket seats. All I have right now are bare floor pans. Do you drill and tap the floor pans? Are there mounting braces for the outward bolts or holes?
There are no braces for the outer bolt holes.They are holes which go thru the floor and into the braces under the floor pans. Then they are taped.This way there is thicker steel that can be taped. I can email you pics of my 68 floor which exposed now. I can also get you measurements. I think they are the same 68-72.
On my 66 I replaced floor pans both sides, The inner brackets I removed from old pans after several measurements, these are a one piece bracket, The outer takes a bracket in frt, and rear is a welded nut on bottom of floor brace. So you have 3 studs and one threaded hole. I can get you measurements off my parts car that still has the inner large brackets in original location.
Hi, I'm also replacing floor pans on a '70 with bucket seats. My seats werent mounted to any brackets, just straight through the floor. Could this mean a previous owner just threw the buckets in there? When I put the new floors in, I want to do it right. Could you guys email me the pictures and measurements as well? Thanks a lot.
1970Chevy, There should be brackets welded to the floor to bolt the inside of the seats to. Then a stud on the front outside, and a bolt down thru the top into a welded nut below the floor on the brace for the outside rear.
Ground up sells the bracket for the inside mounts...Bill
