I’m getting close to the time when I can start my ‘51 streetrod project and I am collecting parts. Was wondering if you guys could tell me which vehicle from the junkyard provides the nicest bench seat in terms of fit and comfort? I talked to a fellow one time who had put a bench seat from an Isuzu truck in his Chevy. It looked pretty nice.

Just a question, what's wrong with the factory bench seat? Why not recover the original? If you're springs are in bad shape, I've seen on other forums where guys have instilled plywood and cut out a thick piece of foam and covered it.

I have a set of bucket seats out of a 2000 suburban with integrated seatbelts. You need to measure your cab and see if a bench from a newer full size pickup will fit. Or find the S10 or Colorado seats.
