Need some help. Can anyone tell me which newer Chevy bench seat would fit my 1976 C10?

Much appreciated!!!

Welcome to the site. Sorry, no. No seat is a bolt on. Some aftermarket seats can bolt on. I have a diagram so you can make a frame bracket. The bracket bolts to the cab floor. A new seat would bolt to the frame. I plan to make a frame bracket. A seat with power plugs, folding console, cup holders, and storage will be helpful.

Thank you, I figured that would be the case but wanted to reach out to see if anyone new of something. I appreciate the response. So, as long as the width fits, I could fabricate the brackets, right?

Shouldn't pickup and Suburban bench up to 87/91 fit these trucks?

Those who can, do. Those who can't, criticize it on the internet.

Yes. The bracket is simple to make. A few angle iron brackets cut and welded or even bolted together will work.

Here ya go!!

How far are you willing to go?
Here's the best custom option I've seen.

Bucket seats and all!
