Question GM seat ID

Purchased these seats for my 55 Chevy and I am missing some parts and need to order them.
I can not order the parts without a true model and year of the seats. I was told they were 64 Pontiac but I have not found any pictures of the year and make.
Can anyone ID them?
Thanks

If they are in fact GM seats and I'm a little hesitant to confirm they are GM I would say they are 1966 or newer vintage, Not 64 Pontiac. The 64 seats do not have a separate rear panel and had chrome trim on the sides of the seat backs. I don't recognize the patterns but they do appear to be pretty plain like a basic Nova or Corvair might have.

Agree with Bruce...They are too high to be 64's.

If you go to this link, you will see several images of 1964 Pontiac bucket seats: https://www.google.com/search?q=imag...NNJj8KM:&vet=1

Thanks for the bump and input. I tend to agree that they may not be 64.
The seats do not have a lock so that leads me to believe they are pre 68.
The tracks are flat mount and the handle should help give it away but I have not heard from anyone who has those two giveaways.
Hopefully someone will ID them.

Seems the chrome handle on this seat is a 66 GM.
I found this on SS396.com

seat track adjustment knob is chrome plated die cast with set screw as factory. Fits all 1966 GM bucket or bench seats

Another difference maker is my seats tilt the the center of the car when tilted forward.

Definitely GM Strato buckets, most likely 1966 as others have already said. The lack of a locking backrest confirms this, as does the shape of the seat track adjuster knob. In 1967 & I believe 1968 there would have been a push button backrest release on the side. Later models had the button on the back at center. The missing side and back covers (shells) for these seats would have been stamped steel. There should be two small metal tabs near the top of each backrest where the cover hooks on. The tabs are each held on by two pan head screws. Later models went to plastic covers, and the tabs are stamped right into the frame. You could probably use the repo plastic covers, but as they are not exactly the same, there will be some creative adaptation required to make them work.

I think the mounting bolt pattern on the seat tracks identifies them as coming out of a mid sixties GM midsize car. I had some Corvair buckets with that same pattern and it seemed like the Chevelles, Novas and others used that same 6 bolt pattern. I'd also lean toward them being 66 vintage. Its a shame the rear covers are missing.

I don't have an issue with the backs not being there due to the price I paid.
I know for a fact that these are not Corvair due to the rear seat having a spot for the hump. The covers are not original.
The steel on the bottom of the seat almost looks like power seat was an option.
I will look at them a little closer tonight.
