Rear seat from a square chevy crew cab for my 'burban?

Offered a nice seat out of the back of a 79ish chevy crew cab 6+6.
Anyone have any experience with one of those seats? I think they have different legs or mounts than a front seat would have. Probably need to construct new legs? If so, what do we use- square tube?
I'm hopeful that this will work without major hassle.

The front seat of mine is a goner. Each seam has let loose so it looks like a bunch of ribbons holding in the stuffing. Looks like the seat back probably broke at some time too with bubblegum welds holding it together.
Thanks

Re: Rear seat from a square chevy crew cab for my 'burban?

I can't say I have experience with a bench from a square body, but I had buckets/captain's chairs in place of the front bench in my suburban when I bought it. They drilled a new hole for one of the front mounts, and used some square tubing to make a pedestal mount for the rear points. It worked well for that, so I imagine you could make square tubing work to mount a bench seat also.

Yeah. My mistake 3+3 not really my era of trucks. The 68 is newer than most of my stuff.
