So,I know some purists hate it but I would like to put some later model power bucket seats in it. The reason being my wife drives it too and she`s 5'1", now i am 6'4" and have severe spinal stenosis and osteo arthritis. Right now it has 63 Impala bucket seats...they look great and they work for my wife but not for me,I also tried late model Mustang seats and they would have been perfect but they are just too narrow. I was thinking Cadillac STS or something of the sort. Im hoping someone else has done this, post pics if you can...thanks

I mocked up the seats from a 2000 Caddy STS in my 1958 Delray, but I ended up deciding to go stock. I loved the seats, just changed directions. Been dragging my butt about selling them - I'm in Chicago if your interested, your profile doesn't show where you're from.

I am in Raleigh,NC. I guess it would depend on how much you would want for them,plus then there is shipping too.

I wouldn't want too much for them, but I'm sure they'd have to be truck shipped, probably wouldn't be worth it. But if you want to see what they looked like in the car, for reference, I can post some pics for you tonight.

Here are the best pic's I could find. I love the seats, they are leather, super comfy, full power including power headrest, have integrated seatbelts and even heat. But I just felt that the fronts stood too tall in the car, they just didn't look quite right to me. After spending numerous days leveling them out, mocking them up and building mounts I ended up going back with the stock bench.
