'68 GTO hardtops share same the lower rear seat as '68-72 2 door Coupe (Post). the '68 GTO hardtop lacks the large molded lower plastic panels and the thin steel strips that screw on and extend upward and frame the slightly narrower upper rear seat cushion on '69-72 hardtop rear seats. '68 Buick GS's, I believe, also used the large plastic lower panels, like '69+ 2 door hardtops but '68 Buick large lwr panels were ( i believe) wrapped in vinyl (been 15 years since parted a rusty '68 GS hardtop).
What one will find is there are 3 different width rear seats (bottom and top)
- Convertible (narrowest), '68-70 & '71-72
- '69-70 2 door hardtop and '71-72 hardtop
- '68 Pontiac and Chevy 2 door hardtop or coupe (widest)
shared with all GM A body Coupe from '68-70, '71-72. this style rear seat will have a small sloping rear armrest bolted to the side of the inner structure. The flat rear side interior panels extend to the floor.
Note: There is slight different steel rod structure of the '71-72 rear seat cushion, due to the evap emission standpipe structure behind the upper rear cushion in '71 and '72's. The latter year seat frames will, if matched by width, fit in '68-70's
Have parted A bodys for over 30 years and chased nice original seats for '70-72 2 door Coupes. Have also owned over a dozen '68 GTO & LeMans parts and project cars.
