GM bucket seats

Post by marx3 on Sat Apr 23, 2016 1:33 pm

Does anybody know if the swivel seats that GM used for A-bodies has the same shape of frame as bucket seats from other GM divisions? I really like the look of the Horsecollar type buckets found in 74-77 Trans Am ( had a Trans Am that I restored the seats in. The seat frame itself is the same for any 2. gen Firebird, only the seat foam and covers differ. I hope that GM used one frame across the divisions.
The buckets in an A-body looks alot like the ones found in a Camaro.

EDIT: dang, just found that the swivel has one single bucket shaped metal frame. F-body cars has a bottom and a back piece that are upholstered individually.

Swivels were different, but I'm pretty sure the regular buckets available in the G3 were the same frame as the F.

Wally is kinda the seat/interior guru here.

I've seen buckets from a 75 Cutlass that looked exactly like Camaro seats, except the upholstery was a little more fancy.

As much as I would really love to have a pair of swivels, I like the Horse collar seats from a Trans Am more.

If I can find a set of Camaro seats or similar, cheap buckets in really bad shape, I can re-upholster them and install them in the car.
Luckily, seat covers and foam is alot cheaper for Trans Am seats, than for Monte Carlo swivel seats.
