1973 seats different from 1976?
« on: January 23, 2009, 10:38:45 AM »
I have the interior from a 1973 and the seats don't line up with the holes from my 76. The holes line up front to back but not side to side. Can I still use the seats, and just change brackets? Or will I need to get my 76 seats reupholstered?

Thanks
Ryan

You might try just changing the seat tracks...the floor pans are different in pre-'75.

the tracks before the converter days sit differently if you have your 76 tracks you should be fine

yeah I still have the seats with the tracks on them, but the seats from the 1973 are in excellent shape.

Thanks for the advice
