You need to know tire and wheel sizes, offsets and back spacing. What "look" are you going for? Pro-Street? Pro-Touring? Will you be narrowing the rearend? What rear suspension and frame are you thinking about? There is a TON of things you have to consider before you can do this correctly.
Doing a 3 or 4 inch tub, maintaining the stock diameter, should allow you to keep the back seat but, a 10" tub is huge and, when going this deep there is generally a larger diameter tire/drag slick being stuffed in there and that makes the back seat unusable.

Poke around in the "install articles". Lots of good info here and it will give you a good idea of the tools, skill and time required to do this correctly.

Mini-tubs were always a good idea for a street machine, and now there are very well done kits to buy or copy. I didn't get what year you have but for first- or second-gen cars there are these:
