    1st Gen seats

    Before I drive an hour to look at some seats does anyone know if 97-69 Camaro seats will fit in the 65 G10 van with clearance on the passenger side for the doghouse. I know I will need custom mounts.

    I don't know what the width is on the base cushion of those seats, but you only have 21" width before you start to interfere with the doghouse.

    The stock bucket seats in my 68 camaro measure 21" wide, so you might be able to squeeze one in there on the driver's side, but there would be no additional room, and they would not fit on the passenger side of the first gen, which is even more narrow. (the doghouse is actually not centered, but it is located about 2" towards the passenger)

    Welcome to the forum!!! Great to see another vanner from SoCal

    Thanks I liked the seats but at 21" they are just too wide. The search continues...

    i have a pair of 1991 chevy s10 bucket seats in my 69 90 they fit pretty good, pass side just touches the door and
    the engine cover lid opens and closes with out touching either seat, lmc truck sells seat cover kits very similar
    to factory type, vinyl and velour, in several colors.

    Would later S-10 seats with the seat belts intergrated in them work? Just wondering in case I can't make my Cherokee seats work.
