Re: Front Seats

They are about 3.5 inches narrower
1 1/4 main seat 2 1/4 on the flip seat
Not that much to work about only difference is the mounting holes
Maybe the style no idea on that one.

60-66 buckets?

I recently bought a parts panel truck. A set of decent buckets came with. My question is are there factory buckets for 60-66? The passenger side flips forward for rear access.
Thanks

Re: Front Seats

Those do look to be factory bucket seats from a Panel.

Re: Front Seats

So apparently gm had made bucket seats for the 60-66? From what I have gathered they only came in the panels? They do look like the blazer utility seats also but I am not sure. So I suppose if the mounting holes match the factory cab holes they should be 60-66? Did they make a console for the buckets?
Thank for the help

Re: Front Seats

No console that I have ever seen. The Panels were mainly work type vehicles, so no need for such a luxury as a console.

True for Chevrolet. For GMC there was a bucket seat with console available in pickups. I don't know any of the details, but search here for "buddy bucket".

Technically buddy buckets are a bench seat frame, not individual bucket seats like a later Blazer with console would have.
