with some measurements of necessary height from floor, and width allowed to clear door, go to a used part yard and start searching, get the center belt assembly also. Ive done things like this many times, even adapt a power unit. going price avg. 60.00 $


Yes, but be careful on which bench seat you choose because there are different mounting bracket heights. And remember not everything is "bolt-in". Some new holes might have to be drilled in the floor to bolt through, so be careful underneath. I put a Camaro seat in a 70' pickup one time & my head was too close to the headliner / roof. JIMZ


go find a bench seat from a similar year GM full size pickup and it should bolt right in. make sure to get all seatbelts and mounts.
