Vette(s): 1981 Great White Shark. Red Interior, 350/190hp. PS, PB (SS), A/C CC, T-Tops, Going to remain as Stock as possible. Served three years in Active Duty Army, then Retired Air Force after 34 years! Badger State Vetts Car Club. 175,000 Original miles!!
The seats for the 1981 are different than those of the 78 or 79. The big difference is that the passanger seat of the 81 folds flat in line with the rear area.

The seats will not fit but the frame rails and the plastic form that the seats fit in, may. Confused??
Vette(s): 1978 Silver Anniversary L82 4spd (M21) Red Leather.
Pace Car is in the hands of a new caretaker.
I have 2 '78's, so I did a little checking. The regular production '78's have the old style seats while the Pace Cars have the new style that would be used in the '79's - '82's. I took a couple of pictures under the regular '78 from the drivers side. I couldn't get under the Pace Car on the driver side cause I have it backed in tight against the wall on that side. From the passenger side as best as I could tell it looks the same as the regular '78's. The front bolts measure 16 in. across. Front to back they measure about 19 1/4 in. Is the floor pan the same on a '76 as a '78? If it is it looks to me like it would work. I don't know if there is anything else that may effect the fit??
