Are you able to post a pic of them fronts, it has been ages I haven't seen one of those so I don't visualise it. Like I say, where there's a will, there's a way, and I'm sure something can be done to get this working.

I'll see what I can come up with. He works 3rd shift, so our paths only cross so often.

That's OK, not a problem. I'm sure something can be done to help out our buddy here. If one is able to chance out a complete interior and heavily modify it, there is surely a way to make this swap work.
I found out that there's a huge junkyard about 20 miles from where I live so If I get the time I'll def check that out, maybe come up ith some finds.

Ok I'm so mad I didn't even take a picture of them.... They're pretty dirty but that's expected for a junk car that's been sitting there for about a month or two. I found some pictures online but none of the mysterious side consoles. I may even be making them bigger in my mind.... I wasn't paying attention to them all that much.

COOL, I'm sure these will fit. You will have to find out about the rails but even if it doesn't line up correctly, you will be able to fab up a rack to make them fit. It has been done for race seats so it will work for these, just be confident and take your time, no need to rush.

I hope so...... do you have any clue what the bottom of these seats (well any like in the focus) look like? I never did look, so I'm not sure. Is there some sort of specific area I could just tap into with the other rails? HMM.

What I can remember from my old days (LOL) and from waht has been done here, you keep your original rails on the bottom. Then either take the sliding rails from your seats or get some from junkyard, fab up the necessary harness in metal and weld it in there (like under the svt seat) or bold it in with sturdy bolds. If all done right you have now the sliding parts under the seat and those will fit the rails in the bottom.

cool well I don't have a welder (yet) but I do like bolts. I hope by some odd coincidence that the rails will match together. LOL.

For some odd reason it might just work out, I dunno. Just be sure that if you use bolts, to tie them really hard, don't wanna see you slide while driving LOL.
Keep us posted when you get them, post a pic since I'm visual mainly, before chopping up things.
