What seats do I have?

I just bought a 72 Blazer project, and the seats need recovered. I assume they are recovered sport seats. I just want to make sure that I order the correct covers.

Do the reproduction covers require the plastic seat backs?

Thanks.

They might be recovered utility buckets. The underside parts look right. But the upholstery is weird and they have a metal backer (not vinyl).

Re: What seats do I have?

What is the dimension of the mounting bolts on the driver seat?

Re: What seats do I have?

It's going to be a couple weeks before I can get the driver seat measurement.

I found a picture of 73-77 buckets that look similar, but they don't quite match. Most likely they are utilities with upholstered covers. Thanks for the help.

Utility buckets do not have tapered sides on the backs.

Re: What seats do I have?

they look like utility seats.....the original ones have a metal back that looks like the one on the left...

the one on the right is a sport bucket that had the plastic back replaced by a vinyl cover...
it's from a '70 as seen by the outward release hook

Re: What seats do I have?

I took the seats apart, they are Hi-Back seats someone cut the tops off of. The frames look similar to the sport seats, except they don't taper towards the top. I think I'm going to order new foam and modify the frames if I need to.
