Hi, can anyone suggest good seat options for 39-46 and width of interior. My 39 panel is 3 hours from me. Found a nice bench seat that may work. Thanks for any help

I put a fully electric split bench w/drop down armrest out of a 70 something Old Toranodo
in my '66 C60. It was quite comfortable, and an *amazingly* nice fit / setup.

There's going to be quite a bit of difference between the width of a '39 panel and a '66 C60

@twotone
Indeed. I only meant it as an indication of the range of options that might be
otherwise overlooked. Some of the smaller, but nicer interiors also offered in
the seventies might be perfectly adequate for something in the late '30's. smile

@tclederman
Yep. Mc'D's was all the rage, back then. smile

EDIT
I'm looking at my GM literature, and it looks like you have 49 1/2 x 37 9/16 mean dimensions to work with.
Is that right?

True, but it seems by the original post that the truck is three hours away and interior dimensions are unknown. Therefore the original poster in looking for interior dimensions and a narrow range of options that will work for his specific application.

Check out some of the 3rd row seating from Minivans. They tend to be narrow enuf to fit the skinny cab, and some of them are really nicely contoured & finished. Get an actual width, and go explore the Junk Yards - great way to spend an afternoon.
