Im trying to get the new foam for my buckets but i have no idea what they came out of, they came with the car but in the trunk>> so is there a part number on them or any way to make sure that i get the right stuff?... From as far as i can tell the look just like 62-65 ss buckets but there seems to be a few different ones that look real similar..66, 68.. ect.. and does anyone know of any cheaper places to get the cushins? Tamaraz has em for 155.45.. thats the cheapest ive found.. thanx

Post some pics and we'll try to help. I've been through this with my '63 so, I'll help if I can. Do they fold straight or do they fold at an angle inward, away from the fore/aft adjuster on the side.

More than likely, your seats are '65. They require a '65 seat cover, as the '63 covers are too wide by an inch and a half (approx.). I ran into this as well when I was lookinng for seats for my '63. I finally found the right seats (well the frames anyway). They came out of a '63 Buick Special. You can still use the seats you have but you'll either have to modify the '63 covers, or find a '65 pattern that you can use throughout your car.
