    I need to put some seats in my 70 dart. The bench is absolutely destroyed and I haven't been able to find one locally and I can't find a set of factory bucket seat brackets or seats at a price I'm willing to pay
    A bench is my preference but I have some APC racing seats i bought for a project and never used or some dodge/mitsubishi colt seats for the early eighties that I have had in the basement for a few decades.Has anyone used anything like this?
    Does anyone have a good suggestion for an alternative seat or brackets that are a little easier to make fit the floor? Pics would be awesome.

    My brother in law used old milk crates to drive his old Pontiac Grand Prix around while he was fixing it up.....

    Some times you gotta get creative. I used 2002 Neon seats in my 64 Dart.
    But the brackets needed modified because of the way they bolt in a Neon.
    I was looking at Toyota Camry seats lately. The floor brackets are flat so mostly you would only use spacers to get them to sit straight and bolt to the floor.
    Anyway usually you can find good seats at the wrecking yards for $100 a pair. IMG_2004.jpg

    I used Pro Car seats and their brackets. Also had my back seat stitched to match.
