Interior swap

Hey guys I am looking for new interior for my 69 chevelle. A friend of mine just had his car back halfed(Tubbed) and is willing to sell me the interior out of his 67 Chevy II. I know the front buckets will work, but has anyone ever used the rear seat out of one of these cars? Physically the seat dosen't look any different. I appreciate all the advice given. Jon.

The 67 Chevy II/Nova is a different car with a totally different body style. The Chevy II is considered a compact car and the Chevelle is a mid size. The Nova and Chevelle were basically the same from 68 on, but the Nova had a 1" shorter wheel base. The buckets are no problem, but the rear seat probably is, along with the door panels etc.

I only plan on using the seats, I suppose I should have mentioned that in my initial post.

The rear seat may work, but I'm not positive. Why don't you just re-cover the seats you have? Front and rear seat covers are only about $300. Then you have new seats instead of old seats. The pictures are of a '71, but they are the same as your car.

My car is an original bench seat, I have been looking for buckets and these are matching front and rear that have recently been recovered. The only thing that worries me is the rear seat. Do you have any ideas as to how I can compare the two rear seats with out getting the other seat the set is about 10 hrs from me or I would just do a test fit.

I'd call the guy and have him measure the rear seat top to bottom and side to side. If the measurements are close, I'd take a chance on it.

I have been looking online at the hooks that hold the rear seat in place they are exactly the same so I believe I will take your advice and go ahead and pick them up. Thanks for your advice.
