Need help I.D.'ing these Buckets...

I was hoping to I.D. these seats that were given to me tonight. Im thinking 67 or so Chevrolet but I really have no clue. Im hoping someone reconizes the stainless strip and can give me a positive ID on the make and year. Thanks for any help.

63-67 full size Chevy, Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile are the same frames & foam. The stainless on the sides are the same as a set of 66 Pontiac seats I had. Most of the chevy seats had stainless trim that went across the top and down both sides.

That looks like a seat from a 60's Corvair, especially when you look at the floor mounting brackets. I have a set in my shop from a '66 right now to be re-done. For coming from a crappy car, they are some of the nicest most comfortable seats around. It's possible these seats were put in other cars also.

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