    Those will even have the bolt holes line up if you bend the rear mounting tabs up instead of the downward angle they were originally.

    i think you will find that a '70 floor pan and an '80's floorpan are drastically different. prepare to do some fabrication and welding

    Late K5 seat tracks and mounts would probably work well in a '70. '85 or '86 (I don't remember the first year anymore) through '91 would be the year range to get.
