Howdy folks,

Does anyone know if the seating surface had any piping around the edges? We're there pleats or folds of any kind in the leather when these puppies rolled off the floor?

Many thanks,

John

John,

Seat were very simple and utilitarian. No piping or pleats.

Here is an image of mine. All of the details were copied from remnants of the original upholstery. This is in a 1941 military, but they were the same as civilian trucks before WW2.
