Help identify these classic buckets

I have a set of buckets that were mounted in my 64 lark however I went back to a bench seat. I would like to unload these however I do not know exactly what they might have been out of so I can't answer to many questions when people ask. Anyone recognize the seat design/pattern on these who can specifically tell me what years/make etc they came out of? Thanks

I was thinking 66, 67 but they seem a little to wide for that year...and the bottom seat cushion is curved more than I remember.

They look like the seats in my 64 Pontiac Le Mans, but it's been 30+ years since I last saw them.

I have a 55 Bel-air that I am restoring for a customer, it has the power version of those seats that he installed in the late 60's. He says they are 64 Impala seats, also claims the power seats are worth $700-800 but I'm just repeating what he says, so take it for what its worth.

Ok I stand corrected, I just went and looked at the seats and they are a little different. The pattern on the upholstery is a little different and these have a chrome trim on the side so maybe a different seat, or just a shined up version.

Just my two cents but 63-64 impala had a chrome band around top seat back 66 had a slimmer seat -67 were same as 66 exept had a release visible on side of seat ,to me they look like 6465 GM gto chevelle cutlass ,,since they have been recovered it would be impossible to tell what version they came from <<but ,there is that word,,the covers have been sewn pleats instead of embossed ,the pattern is of a Corvair..

I don't know what they are, but they are not '60's Nova, Chevelle, or Corvair. They are real close to 1967 Barracuda, but not exactly. They are '60's seats.

AM suplier

In those years american motors was buying some parts from the BIG three, could be other frames with AM spec matching upholstery.
I remember Being in the Ford Pilot plant in the mid 70's looking at pre -production vehicles, I asked the engineer in charge of interior trim if they were going to ship Ford vans with recling captains chairs with Chrysler logo stickers on them. Opps, they all had to have New stickers with the Ford oval on them.

They are not '60's AMC seats either. They look like chevelle seats that have been re-done to me.

He is planning to put them back in the 55, he also has a console from an impala SS that was in the car. For now he plans to have it all refinished and reuse it. I will try to get some pictures so you can see if they are Impala seats or not, he says they are, but the pictures I found on google search have a chrome strip on the top and sides, these are just on the sides. and the driver seat is electric?

I agree with a few others here. They are 63-64 catalina 2+2,- impala and GTO for 64-65. They used the same wide cushions across a few model lines.Mostly from 63-65.
The pattern looks like my 64 Lemans. I bet it is a impala or chevelle pattern though.
Look at the cushions shape though....all looks the same.
