I am speaking of 66 and later A BODY SEATS HERE. Don't know about the pre 66 seats.

No button =1966

Button on the side of the seat back with METAL seat backs =1967

Button on the side of the seat back with plastic seat backs = 1968

Button in the center of the seat back about should blade height =1969-72

If the button is anywhere other than the 4 examples above they are not 66-72 Chevelle/a body seats.

I WOULD SUGGEST going to TEAMCHEVELLE.COM and posting this in the forum.I guarantee you %100 that someone over there will know what they are. There are a lot of knowledgeable people there.

Just DON'T insult a factory 400 block or they will attack you. :lol:

Thanks guys. I will have to check on the button location. I have had these for a while I bought them for a 55 chevy project. I was told that they were Pontiac 2+2 seats or maybe Grand Prix seats.

All the GM A BODY seats those years are the same. The only difference is the upolstery cover on them. A 69 CHEVELLE BUCKET SEAT IS THE SAME SEAT AS A 69 GTO,Cutlas etc. Just different covers. Based on your post I'd say you know that already but some people may not.

They are olde enough, as they don't have headrests. Some 67 buckets had them, but I don't think the earlier ones did...
