Can I put a mid-80s bench in a '69?
So we bought our 16 yr old his first truck...it's a '69 long bed with a 350. Don't know who's more excited though :D
Anyways, it has bucket seats. We need to put in a bench so he can still take his 2 brothers to school. I've seen a couple on CL but they came out of a mid-80s truck.
Anyone know if they'll fit?

First - '68 longbed (lady runs stop sign, insurance gives me a check)
Then - '81 SWB (stupid stupid stupid...sold it thinking I was going to get something else)
Now - Finally got my '86 (350, Holley 600, 700r4)

I reckon aslong as its not too wide to fit in the cab then some brackets could be made up to support it.2010 Sierra Nevada Edition

If I remember the width is ok but the feet arent in the right places.
You'll need to build adaptors or mod the feet to fit.
Tell the boy congrats on his new truck, thats a great model yr for a new project/driver should be a great platform for him to learn mechanics on not a lot of electronics to worry about mostly simple wiring.

He thinks it's cool seein how mine was a 68. And yeah, it's very simple. Even though it's a 350, and that's what he's used to seeing in my '86, I'm still impressed with how little there is on it!
I found a scrap yard that I may call and see what they've got. If not, I'll probably snatch up one of the mid-80s seats and see what kind of mods we can make to it.
