Came across this ad on my local CraigsList

"Pair of swivel bucket seats - need recovered - not sure what they came out of. $50 - OBO or trade."





Ad was a month old but I sent a reply, just heard from the guy. Said everything is there and he thinks seatbelts, foam is good and they just need to be recovered.

Offered him $35 and I'm picking them up tomorrow.

Are these what I hope they are? Keeping in mind I have a '73 and swiveling buckets are the very first thing I thought would be cool in it.

My 1st car was a 74 Cutlass, with swivel buckets. Always liked them.

Good find. For $35 you cant go wrong.

They are NOT out of a submarine, from the look they are the optional seats from a 1937 Massey-Ferguson combine.:poke:

As long as they're not to wide and come with the rails, you can drill new mounting holes if necessary,and it won't matter if your submarine is a nuke, or an old diesel boat. .......:nanawrench:.........:yell:

Swivel buckets were in the 4th generation of G bodies, so 1973-1977 Malibu, Cutlass (where I've seen them before), etc.
