    Seats and door panels for 1977 caprice

    Post  coolnyjay on Fri Jul 17, 2015 9:33 pm

    Looking for seats and door panels in good condition for a 1977 Caprice 4dr. What other year door panels will fit? What other model cars can I use the door panels from? Thanks

    Any 4 door from 77 to 90 will fit, but ofcourse colors and slightly different style changes over the years occured, so try and get a matching set. I believe 77 to 85 are the closest match, 86 and up look way different

    I'm particular to the Olds Delta 88 Royal door panels, myself.

    Here's a 79 2 dr



    A 78 2 dr, my all time favorite.



    And an 84 2 door



    Here's a 78 Toronado.  I'm told they fit but I've never tried them myself.  
    The seats are a direct replacement in 77-79 caprices and Impalas.  I've done the swap myself.






    Buick are nice too

    Here's an 85 LeSabre  2 dr



    And a 78 LeSabre  2 dr



    A 77 Riviera  




    Don't forget Pontiac

    77 Bonneville 4dr



    78 Bonneville 2dr.  I really like these ones too.




    77 Catalina 2dr



    85 Parisienne 4dr.  I love the courtesy lights!




    All same year 2dr and 4dr door panels are the same patterns.  The 4dr ones are just shorter.

    I hope this helps.

    I like that 78 bonneville 2 door, those are nice panels, gives it more of the older 60s and mid 70s looks, well 78 aint too far off lol
