Install later model Bonanza/Baron front seats in my Travelair?

Does anyone out there know, if I can trade out the original pilot seats from 1960 with something more modern that may recline or be more comfortable, like maybe from a later model Bonanza, Baron or? I'm hoping for something that will slide right on to the tracks I have now.... Is this a possibility or am I just dreaming (as usual!)?

Model: Travel Air B95

I had V35B front seats installed in my 1959 K35 by Hammock Aviation Services in Ennis Texas.

Since you are going to need a field approval to do the change, look for seats that can be placed on the seat tracks you have. If that attachment is the same, then the process should be relatively easy to work through your local FSDO. Seat belt attachment would also have to be the same to keep it simple. Modifications beyond that would probably require engineering support.
