    88-94 chevy truck bench or low back buckets they ride nice and give more leg room.
  3. x2 on that seat. You'll need to drill a few holes, no big deal.

    You may have to section the bases a bit though as the later model seats seem to sit quite a bit higher than the earlier seat did. Go for the later seats with some shaped support in them as I had an 88 base level seat in the 71 and it looked great but wasn't too comfortable. I have an early 90's split bench in it now and it really sits comfortable. But it could be an inch or so lower as I look out the windshield a lot higher than I used to.

    I put an 85 Dodge truck bench in my 65 C10 and it was real comfy.

    late 80's early 90's are the best IMO ..two holes line sit just a little lower compared to orginal seats

    I know this thread might be bit out dated but could you explain a bit more on what you mean by more leg room? better yet any body have pics of these seats installed on a 60-66 c-10
  11. The 88 and newer GM pickup seat platform is a tad lower than the factory bench seat and the upholstery holds the occupants lower in the seat when installed in a 60-66 application. I have 100k miles of knowledge on that.
    Car bucket seats in this truck cab are too low if bolted directly to the floorboards. They suck after many miles. I have 75k miles of knowledge on that.
    The factory seat is ok at best. Barely. Yep, 25k miles of knowledge with that.
    I stand 5'7", so my comfort basis is in my 30" inseam length. My comfort basis is also from driving home after performing a very physical job for years on end and truck miles on end. I hurt more from climbing out of a stone stock 87 Nissan Sentra after a hard day of work and then the 40 mile drive home vs my ragtag 65 Chevy pickup with a 89 GMC non-headrest bench worn out seat.
    My DD is a 96 Chevy stock 1/2 ton 4wd. If it gets plowed, I know where the split bench will go. I've had my Black Dog 65 Chevy since 86. The Black Dog will roll down the road again one day.

    I used a 73-87 chevy seat, took the brackets off and the 63 brackets bolted right to it, no drilling, no problems... the only thing that sucked was right after the seat went in I needed to change the sending unit in the tank, and the seat I installed did not fold forward.
