    Hi guys - need some help.

    I'm looking at putting Procar buckets in my '66 and I need some measurements checked.

    They have floor frames in 2 sizes for the '66 buckets, but neither matches mine.
    The bolt spacing side-to-side on both driver and passenger seats in my car (at front of seat) is 14".

    Anybody able to measure their spacing so I can tell if my car has an oddball setup or if Procar needs to re-template?

    thanks in advance

    Assume anything other than factory will require some hole drilling and maybe some added height spacers also.

      like, to get Procar to build a proper fit rather than a "universal" that I'd have to deal with - 3 out of how many are 14"?
      there have been a number of comments on this site about this fit problem for 1st gen Barracudas, I'm trying to help
      anyone who wants to put in these seats in the future

      So you're waiting for Procar to read this thread, change their product, and provide you what you need? You're not being very clear. What input are you looking for?

      all I want is to be able to go back to Procar with more than 3 cars with 14" measurements for the front-of-seat bolt spacing so I can convince them to build a proper template for '66 Barracuda bucket seat mounting hardware

      For a aftermarket vendor to build there products specifically to fit every Chrysler, Ford, Chevy, imports, EVERYTHING,,, that's a sweet dream. Good luck though.
