Post Cutlass Brougham to 442????

I need help!!!
I am a 20 year old and I dont have alot of experience with old cars. I recently bought a 1983 Cutlass Supreme Custom Edition with a brougham interior. It has a split 40/60 bench seat and the shifter is on the colome. I was wondering how big of a job would it be to slap a set of 80' to 87' 442 bucket seats in her and trow the 3 speed shifter on the floor and make it look like a factory Hurst/442. I already sunk a 400 Small Block in her with a 700R4 tranny and 3.83 in the rear out of a 68 camaro, so all I got left is the interior.
Any input would be appreciated.

They made 442's in the 80's

Swapping out seats are pretty easy. Just toss your old ones and bolt up the new ones, they should have the same bolt pattern. Swapping to a floor shift is pretty easy as well, just swap out the linkage. I beleive they sell kits for this.
