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 :confused:

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.

Thanx "weenking" they did make 442 in the 80's, but most people called them Hurst Olds.

Ill see what i can do about those kits.
