Can you identify these seats?

    I was given these seats with my 1969 Dart.
    The seat covers look correct and headrest but the tracks look wrong and, if you look closely, you can see that the seat release is a chrome lever up on the side of the seat.
    Let me know if you recognize what seats these came out of.
    (I just might adapt and use them anyway because they look so close to being correct.)

    Im not 100% that that lever is Mopar I could be wrong...they look GM the headrest does anyway. I sat that because I had Pontiac Tempest with seats out of a Sport Lemans, the headrests were shaped similar.

    Not Mopar.....I believe those are GM seats, possibly, Chevelle or Camaro late 60s?

    Also Mopars that I'm familiar with use a push button to move seat forward, not a handle that you show. A body and E body.

    I found a serial number on the bottom of the seat and they identify as: *drum roll*

    1969 FORD MUSTANG BUCKETS!

    Ugh. But actually they fit perfect.
    The previous owner must have made those brackets to adjust the ride height.
    I measured the seat height of the bench seat and it was 9". The Mustang seats with the brackets have a ride height of 9.75". Just about perfect. I think I'm just going to weld reinforcing plates in the floor and use them for now.
    Until I can find someone who will trade me 69' Dart buckets for these 69' Mustangs.

    Yeah, I'm switching from auto on the column to a console right now. I need to get the console in, so these buckets will have to do for now. (posted a pic with the seat in the car above)
    I doubt 90& of the people would be able to tell on a quick glance anyways.
