I have a rust free 1950 Suburban shell that is sitting on a frame. Previous owner put new front floor panel in without seat riser. Missing all seats. Trying to decide whether to locate and install original factory seat set or, modern seats that would tilt forward for access.

Thoughts appreciated to help me decide what direction to take .

Tom

In reality you're choosing more than just which seats to use, you're deciding the entire future direction of this truck build - restored or modified.

There are occasionally some original Suburban seat sets on Ebay, but they cost a fortune. Check out MNSmith's build thread - he fabricated his own set of very original looking Suburban seats.

Since my truck was an economy build I went the other route and used a cheap set of GM buckets.
