My first impression is mid sixties Pontiac Firebird or Camaro or Chevelle. They sure look my old 69 Chevelle seats.

The upholstrey, chrome trim and seat track shrouds makes me think mid-60's MoPar. I remember seeing seats just like those when I was a kid back in the 60's now if I could just remember what in............

My first thought was mid 60's Ford, like in the Galaxies.

That would be my second guess, mid-60's full size Ford, Mercury or T-Bird.

I would say definately Ford from the early/mid 60's...not T-Bird though, I believe they all had the Bird emblem in the seat back near the top.
Later,

I don't think it's a '64. Here is a pic of a '64 bucket. Although the chrome trim does go all around.




Okay...did some searching as it is driving me nuts. I think it might be the '66 Galaxie from this pic. You can see the metal plate in the back and the seaming looks the same

Well, you got your answer. They are Dodge/Chevy/Pontiac/ Galaxie/T-Bird/Chevelle/Camaro seats. Any fool can see that!

Not quite the same as the '66 either but closer, defintely mid 60's FoMoCo full size. '65 or Merc' ?

Edit: Found this pic of a '65 Galaxie 500 XL interior, looks like a pretty good match............
