I am looking too but have found it to be impossible to find one that will allow me to use the factory seat.

If using the factory seat, you will need a base from an early (75/76/etc) G series conversion van, hard to find. If you find one (or two) buy em both!

If you have aftermarket conversion van seats, there are lots of swivel pedestal options.

BTW, I'm glad to see you got some rear popouts.

Another option is to get a swivel plate but that choice generates concerns for me.

The ones I have seen raise the seat 1" to 1 1/2".
The manufacturer's state that they are not DOT approved and not intended for cars/trucks/vans.
They are basically flat so when you swivel 180d the seat bottom is sloping down in front so you're gonna tend to slight out of the chair...

I've been on the lookout for the old version for a long time.

I've seen those plates as well and i had the same thoughts. I'm pretty sure that extra height would make the seating position awkward for my wife (5ft tall on a good day). If the bolt pattern doesnt line up with the stock seat there would also be an adapter to add to the height as well...
