bucket seats?

does anyone know whether the 2 front bucket seats from a 69 camaro would fit in an 86 berlinetta? because my friends dad was going through HIS dads old garage, and found this broken down 69 in there. the whole car was apparently a project he was working on before he died. his dad was just going to junk the whole car, since there was no engine, and it was rusted really bad, but i looked at the seats, and they are in good condition. i just want to kno whether they would fit in my car or not, cuz they are gold and black leather, which would go with the rest of my car too. and if they would fit, any tips on swapping out the seats would also be very much appreciated. Thanx!

to the OP.... they might fit. you might have to adjust the tracks for them. or take the tracks from the 86 and mount them on the seats from the 69. why not pick up the whole car? get a crate motor and drop in there.

anyways I would think they fit but make sure to TAKE the entire seat set up(tracks) with the seats,cause you can probably take the entire seat set up out and put the new set up in

i cant, because there is no engine bay, or tranny, or really anything. believe me, i would LOVE to hav a 69. the 69 camaro is the car tht got me interested in camaros in the firstplace. thts y im interested in the seats. and i mite be able to get the whole set up, tracks and everything, but i dont know how to swap out the ones i hav with the 69 ones. and i cant afford to fix up a car as in bad shape as tht, i dont even hav enough money to fix up my 86. its gonna be YEARS before this one is done lol

well my guess would be is unbolt it from the 69, and see if they fit the 86,if not, DRILL if you think you wont mess up your car, I wouldn't try it unless you know what your doing

the first question is will a set of 1st gen seats fit in a 3rd gen & the other way, The answer is NO but you can make them fit.

its fairly simple all you have to do is place the seats where you want them & drill for the new tracks.

If they're original 69 seats you can always sell them for a nice tidy profit and have your seats re-done or find aftermarket seats that fit. It's best to use a seat with the same mount dimensions because the nuts are a part of the floorboard.

dude its not my car, and if there was anything left i wudv taken it, cuz i lov the 69s. there isnt an engine bay, no axels, no steering wheel, no windows, no trans, no pedals, no handle on the passenger side door, no back seat, holes all over the place. there isnt any hope for it. the only thing left on it tht was in good condition were the front seats. thts y im takin them.

ps- and i dont think hes gonna crush it, i think he wants to fix up the frame an put it on the wall of his garage. it wud fit, thts for sure. his garage is huge.

Fron and rear 4th gen F-body seats will bolt right up in a thirdgen without doing any modifications. And they would be waaaay more comfortable than the 69 seats.

dont ever say that about a camaro. there is always hope. its just that some cars need more hope than others.

Get the seats and tracks. pull your seats and tracks out, see if the tracks will align with the mounting points for your stock seats, if they do line up, then you are good to go.

and ive seen a lot of conversions going the opposite way ie: 3rd and 4th gen seats going directly into a 1st gen. however, the 4th gens (and I would imagine 3rd gens as well) have a raised rear in the floor.

I know the front mounting holes will line up fine, and the rear ones should. however with the raised rear (that you might not even have, but probably do), the rear mounting holes should line up as well, only the seat will have a slight incline forward.
