    I've got a 1965 Barracuda that has bucket seats and needs outer seat brackets. What years will interchange and can I use bench seat brackets?

    I don't know about interchange years, for sure, though I would guess 64-66 at least would be the same; but the bench seat brackets are completely different -- no resemblance to the bucket brackets, and they attach to the seat totally differently.

    I suspect that brackets up through 65 will interchange. 66 Brackets are different on the mounting studs to the floor spacing and I suspect different on the seat base mounting as well.

    Looks like I will have to repair what's left of the originals. Thanks for the replies.

    What is the side to side stud spacing on the '65 seats?

    Thanks, 65 Dartman. I always wondered where they lost the 2" of seat width for the '66 model year. I have a couple sets of MOPAR bucket seats on the shelf and the side to side measurement is 15" +/- on both sets.
