Hi Fellas. What was the name of the split, front seats in the '47-55 chevy trucks?

Which model trucks?

I think there were no split front-seats on non-Suburban/Panel 47-53 small trucks?

There were Unison/Ride-Control "split" seats available as an option on 54/55st standard cab trucks.

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

The Suburban model came with its own split (double/auxiliary). The panel/canopy has the one pictured and if you wanted a passenger it is also called out as “auxiliary.”

Or the unison seat as Tim describes, The single seat was described as Ride-Control seat, comes with the companion two-passenger seat. I am not aware of others?

Yep, Brad,

You show a rough version of the Unison (Ride-Control) seat assembly that will be in my 1954 "deluxe" pickup.

The seat assembly seats three people, with the driver's seater being an air-cushioned "floater".

I'm not sure but I think the riser, under the seat, for the unison seat set-up is different than the Full Bench seat riser.

The illustration on the left is for COE.
The illustration on the right is for standard cab.
I'll check the FAM, tomorrow (if my failing memory remembers).

I have a set (in my garage) that fits on/in my 1954 3104 that originally had a standard bench seat.
