HI

Hi, new member from North Dakota........I am an old Chevy buff of
many years. Would like to know if anyone can tell me if there are
lowback bucket seats that would fit a 1969 C-10.

Thank you very much

Thumbs up Re: HI

Welcome Brian

You should get your answer, other wise it only takes a little work to make
most any seat fit. I had Blazer Power Leather Bucket seats in my 69 C20 before I switched back to the stock bench seat.
Just remember that all bolts through the floor need to have plates on top and bottom so as not to rip the floor pan with the non-stock bolt locations.
Lot's of people do it so don't freak out. lol

Re: HI

other than the obvious buddy buckets that were stock in some of our trucks, and after market seats, there are lots of seats that will work. I've seen minivan seats, late model car seats, all with the headrests removed............walk thru the junk yard with a tape measure, I'm sure you'll find something. You will probably have to make seat mounts for them, and be sure you brace the floor for them, like Mark said.

No problem at all, and as Bill said take your tape measure and check
your width and hight. You will most likely have to make a steel frame
for the seats to fit on because of the curves of the floor pan.
I wish I still had mine but I set it out for the scraper.
You will want the the correct hight and consider your seat belts the
whole time your doing.
I can post pictures of my bench seat install with new carpet, new 3 point
after market seat belts if you would like.
I have a 1969 C20 CustomCamper and she is sweet to ME lol
Mark.

Here is the link to the complete install thread I posted here on the board.

New Seat Install

Hey guy's you can find most anything that has ever been talked about
if it was posted with a search-able name when posted.
(So when you post something name it what it is) if you are looking for a Transmission Name it that. Transmission for 70 Chevy C10 SBC 350

Anyway here the the box you do all of this searching at. This is all I did
just put in 69 C20 Bench Seat Install and my thread came up and bunch of other thrads as well.

Re: HI

Hello from So Cal Lower Desert area.
Every bodies right by using the Search box to find things. Give a good description in your wording or re-word it if necessary.
