What do you want to do? Do you have a bench and you want to put in 4th gen buckets? do you want to put in newer style seats?

When I got my 86, it had the bench seat. I bought a complete set of Cutlass seats with buckets, console and all and they just bolted right in. Nobody could ever tell., except for the column shift handle was removed.

It was a mid 80's. They bolted right in. Like I said perfect fit front and back. GP seats also would most likely fit right in. I don't haev any pics on here I don't think.

Yes it did, just had to get a cable for shifter. If the shifter comes with one, it should work as well.
