I put 80s Mopar bucket seats in my '60 Plym., bolted right in. Anyone use current generation Challenger seats in an FL car, know if they would be a bolt in?

I'm putting 2013 Challenger buckets in my '57 Dodge wagon and there's no way they are just "bolt-in". Way different.

Well, that's disappointing. Where the bolt pattern hadn't changed from '60 to '85. Just having to do drill new holes?

We're building new risers, in particular because the power driver's seat has parts that hang below the seat mounting points. Also bear in mind that the '57 was originally a bench, not buckets. It only had one bracket per side.

I put '85 buckets in my '60. Think it was split back bench originally, but maybe not.

So, are the risers the only problem you can see? Wiring them up straight forward?

In the 2013 Challenger the seats were tied in to the body control module. We are just bypassing that. LH will have full power; both will have seat heaters to keep mamma happy. Only thing lost will be any memory functions. Obviously the air bags will not be used. I studied the Challenger wiring diagrams and sorted out which wires were necessary, and tagged them for the builder who is now beginning the wiring of the car. It will have several ECUs for engine and transmission control, Apple Carplay radio, and a video rear view mirror among other updates. Stay tuned.

Interesting. Hopefully not too complicated.
