    Based on the part number I’d say mid to late ‘70s.

    I'm hoping to use these to convert manual 1970 300 buckets to power.

    Looks like they should work. I would suggest going through them and cleaning them up. It is a rather involved, with small components but you will probably never have to touch them again. It is a very durable design. You need to get that 50 year old grease out of it.

    Here is a link to my restoration so you get an idea to what you are getting into. I restored everything, it of course would take less time if you just disassembled and cleaned. Power seat and 4 channel amp

    Yep, that's exactly what I was doing two years ago. Cleaning, lubing, lubing the "cable drives" to the gears, the gear boxes, etc. Messy job for sure.

    Here are the tracks from 1973 for comparison. I think they will fit a number of years.

    You are going to love the power seat base. I can get my seat in the perfect position, for me.

    Those are in very decent condition. Look to be from early 70's by the switches. Most of the parts were universal for all Mopars that used power bucket seats. It is a time consuming job to take it apart and clean/lube everything. But worth it. 60's models had a single switch that you could push fwd/back/up/down and twist it to tilt the seat. So the switch mounting & seat trim is year/model specific. I believe they will bolt right in to any c-body. One note, seats from a 4dr will not fold over to allow access to the rear in a 2dr.

    Take photos of how it's assembled before taking it apart.
