My panel has no seats. This trk is just for fun, so I don't need the uber rare seats. A local seller had 2002 Tahoe seats that looked like they'd be ok, but I wanted to hear what others might have used.

I’d do third row Tahoe/suburban/Escalade seats. They have built in seatbelts and width is perfect. I haven’t installed them yet but I’m going to. Pic is not mine but shows how well the look and fit.

Nice, thanks!

I just missed out on a full set, front and back, with tracks, for $125 😠

In your 1949 Suburban?

How easy is it for riders getting to the two back seats?

I snagged all three rows of seats out of a 2000 Suburban when I bought my 5.3LS engine. The front seats and third row seats have built in seatbelts. I've been looking at ways to mount the 3rd row behind the front seats and leave the 2nd row for someone else.


Another quality post.

Panel trucks should have bucket seats so you can pass through to the rear cargo area. Here's '68 Chevelle buckets in my '51 panel:

Those '68 Chevelle seats look good. I had a bench seat from a datsun pickup for the first 20 years, now I'm putting in front seats from a Chevy Astro minivan. The bench seat could flip forward, but it was still difficult to get in the back, I'm hoping the "captain's chairs" will have enough room between them for access.
