    I picked up a set of Cordoba buckets, minus the tracks, for $50. I wasn't sure if the actual metal framing was the same as the 71-74 seats. My 71 Charger's drivers seat had some rot and I needed cores and figured I didn't get hurt at 50 bucks if they're wrong. They look great.

    Anyone know? Thanks.

    I don't know about the seats, but the Cordoba does share many B-body parts. Ash tray and Glove box insert are the same as my '71 Charger.

    Let's see, 71 buckets are diff on many ways from 72/74 itself. We need to add to this 71s got two different designs on the unlocking latch system. First half 71 share the latch system from 70, second half 71 are just like 72/74. This makes the plastic back panel changes too on hinges area.

    The other diff in all 71 is the seat back got springs, where 72/74 didn't and I guess 75 and laters didn't get springs either.

    So, depending what exactly you need to fix on your 71 bucket you could use the 75 parts or not.

    Bottom section could be the same though.

    Foam is certainly diff on both, bottom and back to accept the 71 cover.

    Tracks form a 71 and up B, or an E, even an A should work just fine.

    I had Cordoba buckets in my 73 Duster.

    Just for shits and giggles, I remember someone saying that the power seat assembly out of the 5th Ave cars was a damn-near bolt-in swap into the 71-74 Bs
