    This car has 3 point shoulder harnesses, just like any newer car has.

    Would you happen to have any pictures of how you mounted the buckets in you wagon?

    I have a 57 210 wagon and would like to put buckets in it as well. I have a pair of 69 Chevelle Buckets that I'd like to put in it. Also could get my hands on 1971 Corvette Buckets. I'd like to keep it oldschool and GM. Thanks

    In my opinion, high back bucket seats with headrests just look out of place in a tri-five. '62 to '65 full size GM buckets look like they belong there, but those late model Eldo buckets certainly look good if you're going for a modern custom interior.

    Personally I like the late 90's to 2002 Cadillac Eldorado buckets. They are little larger-looking than a lot of other bucket seats, have 12-way power (with lumbar) and heat (if you want it), and fit well in these cars. There are a few others here who have used them too. I tried using a pair of Lexus seats, but they just looked to small in the car so I'm keeping them for another project. I built my own seat mounts that you can see in the pic below. I had a few other guys who wanted them, so I made several sets of them that I'm selling as a kit. The seat tracks need to be modified slightly, and only two holes need to be drilled in the floor for the inboard mount to make sure the seat is secure for safety reasons. The outboard mount is a bolt-in. I have a couple more sets left if you're interested. They may actually work with other seats with some modification.

    Here's the 2000 Eldorado seats in my Nomad.

    do you still have seat brackets or where you can get some?

    Supercop, for some reason I've been selling these like hotcakes the past couple of weeks, and I only have one set left. Send me a PM or an e-mail if you want it. I probably won't make another batch unless I get a couple more orders and I don't know when that might be or if it will happen at all .

    Sid, people might suddenly get tired of hot cakes.

    I have a feeling I'll end up making another batch....I wasn't sure you wanted a set but I'll make sure to set one aside for you.
