    On my '82 I put stock buckets, and the matching cloth center seat assembly in it. I had to fabricate the inboard front mount for the front seats as mine had none in the vehicle. The inboard rear front seat achors were there.

    I used seats out of a chrysler lazer. Fronts and the rear. I just fabed up a frame for the rear and it latches just like the bench. But its like a bench/bucket design.

    I was looking at a set out of an '96 Grand Am at the salvage yard the other day. They looked like they'd fit WAY to easy. Not bolt in, but almost. The only bad thing is there's not an armrest like in the stock captains chairs.
