I have a couple set of tracks. Someone will have to tell me what is different about the 68 tracks, so I can identify if I have a set. I did scrap a 68 Coupe, so one may be the set you need.

Marko:

Why don't you measure mount stud/holes on the seats and on the floor and post the dimensions. I will then measure my tracks and see if they are the same. Might be just the safety handle on the outside track lever.

I know there is a difference, because I had a 68 passenger seat in my 66 racer, and it had to have an adaptor.

I may be able to measure later tonight?

Weren't the 68-69 buckets from the Caramro? Would possibly explain different mounting holes.

i will measure the hole spacing on the underside of the 68 seat where the tracks mount.
i cant readily access the car to measure the spacing on the car's floor.
i will get measurements and pics tomorrow

I have 68 Camaro seat extenders. I can match my tracks to it also.

The floor mount points on the 68 Camaro and LM Corvair are the same at 14.25" . If there is a bolt up difference, it must be to the seat. I need the 68 Vair seat bolt mount hole spread dimension to see what I have to determine if it will fit your 68.

The track holes to mount to the seat are 12 11/16" (center of each hole when I measure) on my track units. Either you can elongate to fit the 68 seats or weld up and redrill.
