The question is a very good question: "Is there any other truck bench seats that will fit the middle or rear seats of 1947 to 54 Chevy Suburban Carryall? "

This is not about original/reproduction 47-55st Suburban seat springs.
If you have original/reproduction seat springs, please contact Mark via Private Message.

If you know a substitute seat frame, please post that information here.

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

Here is what you can do. Find any 1947-59 Chevy GMC suburban front seat cushions NOT Jump seat. Those seat cushsions will fit on the second row seat frames, Also It can be used in the 3rd row seat frame, but It will have to be stretched (I dont remember how many inches any more.) To stretch that seat cussions it will have to be cut in half and filler sections will have to added and those filler sections can come out any 1947-54 pickups seat cushions. It will require fabricating and welding, it is doable for the right person. I have done couple of them myself, but many years ago. It can be tricky. The truck seat cushions dont have to be in good shape, you are just going to grab filler pieces and spring coils If you need help i will try to help as much as i can with what i remember, i dont save any measurements or take any pictures of how i did it. Maybe someone else here has done what i did, can slide some information. I dont check in here often,
