Does anyone know the difference between 1963 Impala and 1965 Impala bucket seats specifically the seat brackets and if they are interchangable? Whatever else you know is appreciated!

All factory 1962 to 1964 Impala bucket seats fold at a angle, and have special seat & floor brackets to fit 61 to 64 floor pans. The chrome on the sides of the seat are unique to 62-64 bucket seats because they fold at a angle( the chrome by the console is shorter than 65 SS seats).

65 impala SS bucket seats fold straight forward - the chrome on the sides of the seat by the console is different than 62-64 SS buckets.
Floor brackets and seat brackets for 65 SS buckets are made to fit the flat factory floor pan and will not work on 62-64 floor pans - - the 65 seats will not fit on a 62-64 floor pan unless 62-64 SS seat brackets and floor pan brackets are used on the “ incorrect 65 SS bucket seats”

Do you know if the 63 and 65 buckets have interchangeable parts? In other words, can you...

1. Can you Install the 63 seat tracks on the 65 frames?
2. Is the seat back frame and springs the same?
3. Is the seat butt frame and springs the same?
4. Can the 63 chrome seat trim be installed on a 65 back seat frame?
5. Is the upholstery & Buns the same for 63 as 65?

Are there any other differences you are aware of?
