Bucket Seat Identification

I bought a 1969 Chevelle years ago and the guy threw in the pictured bucket seats. I looked around on the net and I cant tell what the came out of. Can anyone help me out and tell me what these seats came out of?

Not positive but under those butt ugly covers you might find some real late 60's to very early 70's low back Ford seats, Mustang, Pinto and so on.

I agree with the time period but not the manufacturer. Definitely 1968 or later because of the headrests. The backs are pretty thin, which was more of a GM style. I'm thinking Nova or Camaro, or maybe even actual Chevelle seats.

They look like they have been re-covered at some point. Late 60's early 70's. Pull up the headrest and see if they have two round posts or one that is flat and wide. Two posts makes it newer than that.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

Other than the diamond pleating they look right for a 69 Chevelle. I think someone recovered them. The head rest and the basic shape look right.
