Ok everyone....I have what I believe is a pair of either '64 or '65 front bucket seats that I do know are in fact out of a Chevelle because when the car was sold to me the owner said they were for a '68 SS. But after looking closely I can see obviously they arn't for my '68 Malibu! So if there is anyone out there looking or knows of someone "looking" either to buy or "trade" let me know. Otherwise I'll just take them to Carlisle and get what I can for them. They will need recovered but everything looks intact and I do have a couple photo's I took of them if someone would like to see what they look like....Enough said. Thank you! fella's. ~ John

Do you still have the seats? I have a 68 Malibu But I am not restoring it for original purposes. What kind of parts are looking to trade for? Thanks, Clark

Clark,

The seats I have are for either a 64 - 65 Chevelle from what I'm told by someone at the Original Parts Group staff. If you'd like, give me your E-Mail and I can send a couple pic's of them to you. What I'm looking for is bucket seats for my 1968 Malibu. Would be willing to trade if possible. ~ John

I don't have seats for a trade that you'd be interested in. My email is [email protected]
these seats won't fit your 68 or you are going for an all original resto?
What would you want for a buy? :confused:

Buick Rivera? Grand Prix?

The seat tracks appear to be correct a-body tracks, but the seats kind of look like Camaro seats, but bigger... I have not seen that "lean in style seat back for buckets before(only benches)

They look pretty good though... Why not just have an upholstery shop re-build them and put back in the car?

With those tracks, they will bolt in correctly.

Side latch, so definitely 67 or 68. Do they have plastic backs? If so then they are '68. Not sure of exact application but my guess is they should work, put on a set of 68 seat buns and covers and run with it!

Well fella's, from the looks of it and the "price" I'm going to take a common sence approach and alittle advise & keep the seats. I'll get them rebuilt and the tracks sand blasted then put new covers on them. They should look like new! Even though they won't be "original", I've said all along I was going to make the car look good as an everyday driver and not "perfect". So the only thing left is finding someone who could rebuild them for the best price? Any suggestions? I live in central PA. Thanks again! ~ John

they sort of look like my 67 Chevelle buckets, but they don't have the emblems.
