      FYI the convertible rear seat is unique. The only swap would be with a Dart convertible. Fastbacks and coupes are different, and different from each other.

        Thanks for that info "mvh" , I thought as much. Everthing I have found so far is the same, but I am always looking twice because mine is an original Warwick Wright RHD from England....

          While the Dart and Barracuda convertible seat frame will likely interchange, they are NOT the same...Upper is the original seat bottom from my '68 GTS. Bottom is from my '67 Barracuda. The seat area of the car is also different DW049202.JPG Seat back brackets.jpg Seat perch.jpg Upper seat brackets.jpg

            Thanks for that Jim, I have new interior rear quarters, and it looks like the Dart seat would not touch the sides, or are you saying that you can put these seats in the opposite car and everything looks ok?

            I haven't set the seats in the seats in the wrong car with the side panels in, but I believe the width is the same. I'm in the process of stripping the GTS for paint/body so I could take a look at what fits.

            Might get to it this weekend. I just have to pull the Barracuda forward and put the side panels and Dart seats in. The Dart seats are hanging from the rafters above the Plymouth.

            Ok, I looked at the seats and didn't see the difference we saw before (there were two of us looking at the seat bottom). Here is the GTS seat in my Barracuda with the side panels mostly in place. They do fit. DSC00483.JPG DSC00485.JPG DSC00486.JPG DSC00487.JPG
