'74 Blazer - Best Front Seat Retrofit

Wondering if ya'll have some suggestions for choosing the best retrofit for a 1974 Chevy Blazer.

I went with the 3rd row out of a late model Tahoe for the back seat. The '74 Blazer has no B-pillars so I had thought about using seats that have build in 3-point belts like the Silverado or Cadillac CTS seats. BMW convertibles also have some nice seats with built in belts.

I realize the seat frame mounting points on the floor boards of the Blazer were not designed to handle the force of impact an occupant would bring against a built in seat belt so I would need to reinforce those mount in the undercarriage considerably.

Also, there's the electrical that I would need to figure out for any power options.

Do ya'll have other suggestions for a good replacement seat for this model Blazer. Should I just stick with lap belt only style manual seat?

Thanks much in advance.
