67 GM Bench seat interchange

I have a 67 skylark 2 dr that i m restoring. The question I have is--''Will a 68-72 2 dr. front & rear bench seats be a direct fit. These are in really good condition and are the correct colour for my interior ( yes I know the pattern design changes for yr to yr). I just like to know would they "bolt up"
correctly--are the seat frames at all different. Thanks in advance for all your help & advice------------JIM

Front seats will bolt in----the rear seats might be limited to 64-67 A-Body cars.

If you are not concerned about "correctness", you can expand your looking to:
Chevelle
LeMans
Cutlass

All the same car with different skin----floors are the same from 64-67

68+ cars in the 2dr versions, the floors are shorter in the rear seat footwells.
everything from the front seat forward is the same

Basically, you have a 3rd generation Skylark and there is no difference as far as fitting in the car between 1968 and 1972. The seats, especially the front seat, should be direct replacements. The only thing to watch is that some of the rear side panels may have armrests in some models and the rear seat may be different because of that. That would be the case in a convertible and possibly other models as well. They also made a two door hardtop and a two door coupe those years.
