Default New Seats - Please Read

I'm looking at purchasing a set of leather seats from a 96 Bonneville 4 door to install in another car. I am trying to get some measurements from the seats to make sure they will fit and I can't get the seller to provide the measurements. Would someone be kind enough to provide a few measurements for me?
I would like to know the front seat width. Maximum width of the seat and maximum width of the back.
Thanks

Try doing a search. It was posted approximately one year ago because someone had the same question as you.

Is this the link you are referring to?
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...98&highlight=A
I did the search and this is the only thread I could find that was close, however they are discussing measurements of the back seat in this thread.
Thanks

i would assume they are going into an Impala?

If so, can i ask why you need measurements?

I will see if I can get you measurements from my friend who we just swapped them into his 94 roadmaster, but likely someone else will get it first

I do have a 96 Impala, but that'* not what these seats are destined for. I hate to have to say it on this board, but I'm looking at putting them in a 83 Ford Turbo Coupe. The seats in that car have really had it and the car is still a good car.
Thanks

i have a feeling that the Bonneville seats may be too tall for use in the t-bird, unless you plan on using the t-bird seat rails. The bonnie seats are actually rather tall with the rails on them, and actually sit taller than my friends OEM Buick seats. Just something to consider

Thanks to Toastedoats, Gumball, and Wow! - JimmyFloyd, those pictures are awesome! Just one question about the last picture - the flash washed out the ability to read the tape measure. So, how tall is the seat?
It'* late and I won't know until tomorrow or so whether the seats will fit according to the measurements. But I will report back when I know!
Thanks!
