    I'm 6'9" tall, about 265 lbs.

    The stock seats that are in my 77 are SHOT. The brackets/sliders are rusty, but ok mechanically. The seats are from something else and worn out. It's really not a possibity to put a cover on them. (they're "bad")

    What's a good replacement?
    I'm not looking for a full "race" seat, just something that works.
    Maybe even a bench?

    Any advice is appreciated.
    I haven't hit the bone yard yet, as I thought I might ask what to look for.

    Iam 6'5" 275lb and have had the same problem. If you dont mind doing a little fab work you can put in newer seat out of a chevy truck 96-2001 like I did. They work great and you can find them cheap like around $300(check ebay).

    I'm a bit smaller than ya at 6'4" - 200# but the Flofits I got from www.seatsource.com fit me with room to spare. Cost was about $800 to the door for two seats with mounting brackets, shipping, etc.
