    Just some more info for you. The 68 to 71 torino buckets seats had risers/spacers on the trans tunnel side of both seats and floor reinforcements the go under the floor board. Originals bring good money on Ebay As in up to $150 a set..Make sure you grab them if you are puling the seats. The consoles have a few little differences over the 4 year span, There is also a bracket that goes on the bottom of the dash to support the top of the console. I have seen a few broken consoles from not using this bracket.

    I am all most finished with my bucket seats, I had a center console from a torino that I had re done and been researching long and hard on my seats. I have a 74 and went with power seats from a 02 seville. I went that route because the seat belts are made into the seats so I didn't have to figure or refit existing seat belts. heck even the seat blets have a power adjust feature. They are all leather and in excellent shape, paid 200.00 for the pair.
