Hi,

I am searching for 66 SS bucket seats. Can any one fill me in as to what to look for. I have seen pictures but am worried about the important stuff. Any help and pictures would be great.

Thanks
Lynn

In case you didn't know......

66 seats have no release button and have a metal back and metal bottom sides.

66 seats frames were the same for Nova, Chevelle, Impala, Cutlass, GTO, LeMans.

66-67 Nova seat tracks are specific to 66-67 Novas because they are shorter in length (approx 14.25" hole to hole from front to back) and were shorter height-wise too.

So you can find a set of (just picking a car model) 66 Chevelle seats, and put the correct foam and upholstery on them, and also shorten the tracks or find 66-67 Nova tracks, and they will be fine.

On another note, you can also find any buckets from the Models listed above from 66-72. They were all the same frames, the release mechanisms were different throughout the years, the backs were different material, and the upholstery/foam were different.

So you can technically get a set of 69 Chevelle seats, get a set of 66 backs, foam, upholstery, and tracks.......and it will work perfectly.
