late model 3rd seats in my 69 Burb

OK so the question is...... If I wanted to mount a late model 3rd seat from a Tahoe/Burb into my 69 burb as a 3rd is there a bracket kit available or is it a made from scratch event??

Re: late model 3rd seats in my 69 Burb

A Scratch Bracket will be a must ...

If you do mount them in the original stepped down location ... the back seat will be too close, no foot or leg room ... picture a 6' guy in the back seat of a Camaro

You will have to mount them up level with the back floor and make the bracket for the front portion.

Too far back and its like climbing into a Limo

And Welcome to the forum ...

Do some searches and you will find where others have done what you are talking about, me included before the current WIP.

I have 4 buckets and 3rd row from a 05 escalade in mine. Check out my build thread for pics. It wasn't terribly difficult to modify seats to fit. Middle row was most difficult and took 5-6 hours
