1970 A body bucket seat ?

I am replacing my front bench seat with front buckets from a Mitsubishi Eclipse. I am finding out the Eclipse bucket seat mounting base is too large for my floor and the seat base rides up on the drive shaft hump.

Can some one who has a A body front bucket seat tell me the tell me the distance between mounting holes? My car is a 1970 Pontiac LeMans.

Mounting brackets are attached to the slide adjustment assemblies. The simplest thing to do is to get some bucket seat mounting brackets from an old LeMans, and put them on the new seats after you take the Eclipse mounting brackets off. You will probably have to drill new holes or do something else to make the old brackets fit the Mitsubishi seat slide adjustment assemblies, but it shouldn't be that hard to do.

If you can't do that, get some universal mounting brackets or have some mounting brackets welded up for you.

The measurements are the same from 66-72

The measurements here, match within an 1/8" of a
factory bucket seat 67 GTO that my neighbor had
