    I have factory 69 buckets in my 69 Dart. Has anyone found a power seat track out of something else that is fairly easily adapted to the factory seat? I am just looking for something height adjustable seeing I am 6'3" and would like to drop the seat down.

    Thanks!

    It may be easier to cut a section out of your existing tracks and re-weld it up, or make new ones?

    What's the dimensions on the bolt holes. I have Durango leathers in my 65 Valiant. Drivers side is electric but not passengers side. Maybe look at the Chrysler 300 in a junkyard and measure those up???

    Definitely an option just think it'd be nice to have power if possible.

    Yeah going to measure up my tracks and make a junkyard trip, thanks.

      Let us know what you find. I'm 6'2" and would be interested in what you figure out. Are you looking for something that will have back seat access too.....for those hot dates, or in my case, kids.

      You might try Sebring seat tracks they aren't as wide was going to put some in mine but went with BMW power heated. They fit but had to drill holes and supports. Very comfortable! But the Sebring might work or crossfire
