Looking for some suggestions on how to best pick bucket seats for a 47 Chevy pickup. I have the originals but thought I might like to go with a bench seat with an arm rest to replace it. Any suggestions on seats that work better than others. Thanks for any ideas shared.

Which is it buckets or bench you’re wanting? 🛠

Support those brave men/women who stand the "Thin Blue Line" and lock up those on the wrong side of that line.

Measure closed door to closed door and subtract 2-3 inches. Then head to the local Pull a Part with your tape measure. Pick out one you like and drill holes to mount it in your cab. 🛠
