    Captain\'s Chairs

    I rode in a custom van today, and it had some captain's chairs for the driver in it that swiveled 360 degrees. Does anyone have captain's chairs in their blazer? If so, what kind did you get? Also is it possible to custom mount the ones that swiveled all the way around? My dad has trouble getting in & out of the stock seats mainly b/c they do not tilt back, but he liked the fact that he could swivel around and slide out of the seats in the van. Thanks

    I went to look at a '79 that had captains chairs in it. Im not sure how far they swivelled though.

    I currently have front chairs and rear fold down from a small van. I went to a van conversion shop and they installed everything..... I've had them for about 8 years. The front chairs do move side to side and recline. The rear folds down into a small bed. Check out your local van/RV conversion outlets in your area. Harry, Escondido, Ca

    I have a set of captains chairs from a Early 90's something Mitsubishi Mini Van. Worked out great. These are the middle seats. The seat tracks were the best part! The tracks are 3 ft long! I had to cut them down in length. Getting into the back seat is a breaze now. the passenger seat can be spun backwards and slid all the way to the dash. It even has lap belts built in. My rear seats are the front seats from the same van so they all match. Keep checking my site I'll try to get some pics up soon.
