Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

Do a search on here as there is HUNDREDS of threads about it detailing pics and such. What you are wanting is probably a 60/40 front bench seat out of a late 90's GM truck. Some seats sit up higher than others such as the 99+ NBS trucks.

You can make just about ANY seat work if you want to fab.

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

I've seats out of a 99 Town and Country van in my truck. The possibilities are endless. With a little fab work and time, anything is possible.

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

I have a bench from a '94 silverado in my '78...i used the OG slider by cutting it down, and drilling a few holes in the '94 seat.

That looks like an S10 so it would be to narrow.

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

mine are aftermarket that got at a swap meet for less than $300 I have no Idea who makes them and they bolt right on to the factory seat tracks and had them covered in vinyl and they sit good, but that fabric that was on the seats faded from medium blue to light blue in a year

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

A lot of those seats in the pics aren't in 73-87's They don't have the gas tank humps in the floor and would sit too high your '79.

I'm interested in this too, I think I'm going to buy one of those aftermarket setups. Probably a 40/20/40 seat, a different style, but like this

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

I really like the early 90's Ford truck bench seats cuz they have foldable armrests in them, big and small. But I haven't seen or heard of anybody fitting one into a squarebody...

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

I would go with blazer buckets and just build a seat for the middle and get it upholstered. I have an 83 bench seat at the shop if youd like me to measure it. These are my 1990 60/40 bench seats with 12" removed from the right seat to make buckets. (Cost $0)

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

rayfinseats,

Yes if you could that would be great, Is the 83 the same size as a 79?
Also I haven't heard back from stitch I hope everything is ok.

Jonboy,
Did that seat bolt right in? Also can you get some pictures of it for me?

Re: 79 C10 seat ideas

I posted pictures of these seats and the brackets etc. before. They are probably still on the message board somewhere. This was a 60/40 from a 1998 model.
