Possible 68 GTO seats??

Hi folks,

I have what I think are two bucket seats for a 68 Pontiac GTO. Is there a way to tell for sure? Is there a model number I could look for? Part number, and location?
Please don't laugh too hard, but these seats were in an old Army jeep I just purchased. Apparently the previous owner thought they were more comfortable than the original seats for the jeep. Anyway, I don't need them, and want to sell them to someone who does, but I want to know what they are exactly before I do.

Thank you all for your time, and any info you care to give.

Sincerely,

Chris Lange

As long as they haven't been recovered, will be able to tell by the pattern in the seat. Post up a pic like Rukee said........ Here's a pic of a '68 seat...

Okay, here are a few pics, but the seats are still in the jeep, so they aren't the best.
I'll go out this afternoon, and get some better ones...

Thanks folks, its very much appreciated!!

Great! Thanks for the info! How much do you think they are worth? I'd like to sell them to someone who can use them. I certainly don't need them for my ww2 army jeep!

Thanks again and have a good day!!

Depends on if you are willing to mess around with shipping them. They may bring a better price out on the www. I recently sold an original pair of 68 Camaro seats on my local Craigslist for $150 with no trouble. I probably could have gotten $200+ on eBay but didn't want the hassle of shipping.

Thanks for the info,

Was that $150 a piece or for the two?

Just wondering.
