I tried some parts salvage on line searching and came up with nothing. Though trying under G body…
https://g-body-parts-gbodypartscom.business.site/
and other sites. Some of the guys on here may have some. Or call and talk to some of the sponsors for this site and they may point you in the right direction.
There is also a guy on Craig’s list in Rhode Island that does g-body parts used.

What's wrong with yours? 40-year-old lube? Rusty? clean, paint and re-lube...made all the difference on my bench. Now I'm not jammed against the steering wheel.
Unless snapped a bracket. Then a little more of a sticky situation.

My 80 Malibu’s OEM bucket passenger seat could use new tracks. I’ve only found new 69-72 A body tracks. Will the A body tracks fit? Or, do you know of a source for G Body bucket seat tracks?
Tracks for bucket seats are hard to come by. I remember reading on one of these g body forums where you can piece together a set using bench seat tracks which are a little easier to find from A/G body wagons or bench seats cars.

Wrong, no you can't. See post #7 of this thread

If you read the thread you referenced & look at the last couple picture, you will see that the driver & passenger inside track on a bucket seat is the same as the outside track on both driver/passenger on a bench & it's even confirmed in a reply to another member that asked the question, see the snip attached.

Notice I said "piece together a set" on my post, hence find a bench with good outside track(s) to use as an inside track & keep looking for an outside bucket seat track. Or maybe the inside track needs the most attention & can get by just replacing that one.. 🤷‍♂️

Are you talking these posts?

If so, please read it again. The outside bucket seat tracks are specific to bucket seat cars.
If you have a 60/40 seats, you need two tracks from those seats. AND two out board seat tracks from a bucket seat car.
That's what the OP was agreeing with.
