    Check to see if your floor pan has the same mounts as a V10 with factory buckets. If it has, I'd just get a set of runners from a junk yard then with a 'bracket here and there' you should be able to make almost any seat fit. I've just put Corbeau recliner buckets and full harness in my '78 on to the stock runners with very little trouble. The '78 runners are different to my '91 but not that much. (apart from the '78 passenger seat tilt and the later ones slide. A bit of minor fabing and welding and you should be able to fit a nice set of sports seats from a car! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Check the buckets out in chev , dodge vans .
    You may be able to modify them to fit , they seem to use a universal base for most of them /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
