Help!

First time posting, so if I'm on the wrong thread please forgive me. Can anyone please tell me what Year bench I have. Thought it was a '72 but after trying to fit my new tracks, I'm thinking it may be earlier...? Thank you in advance!

So I guess the next question would be, where can I find tracks for a '69 bench?

Re: Help!

Rear seats did not have tracks, they just bolted to the floor. Your missing the front hoops and clamps. Research some images here and post a want ad after becoming a member at only $25.

Re: Help!

those rear brackets look more like a 2nd row suburban bracket but its hard to tell. I haven't seen a Blazer with that fabric pattern either which leans me more toward the Burb.

If the rear brackets are roughly 2" tall from floor to bottom of seat it is a 2nd row burb bracket. If it is roughly 4" from floor to bottom of seat it is either a Blazer bracket or a 3rd row burb seat. From everything I have found 3rd row burb and Blazer rear seats are the same

Re: Help!

This is what your brackets should look like. some seats had two rear brackets and some had 4

The big tubular brackets are the front ones

the middle brackets shown are the rear brackets and the bottom two are the hold downs that bolt the tubular brackets to the floor

You wouldn't happen to know of any site that manufactures those would you? I feel like I'm stuck having to find originals...
