1939 Chevy Pickup seat swap options
1 Attachment(s)
I've heard that a Blazer/S10 bench seat would fit. Before I take the plunge, anyone ever try this/another size seat for their 1939 pickup?

An older S-10, Ford Ranger, or Dodge Dakota will all probably work. You need to measure between the doors and then measure any possible newer seat to be sure.

truck seat
I have a 46 chevy truck which is basically the same size cab, I put in 1999 cavalier bucket seats and the console. The shifter and the emergency brake handle all are used. I also got the 3 way seat belts, the belts go thru the retainer brackets by the head rests. The cup holders, storage tray and under arm rest storage in the console is nice as the glove box in the dash can't really be used with air conditioning under the dash. I took out an astro van seat that I had in before so that seat fits also.

If I were you, I'd go down to the wreckers with the measurements of your truck cab in hand, and go for some much nicer seats then what were offered in the S10. Quite often wrecker yards get much newer vehicles that were in a bad accident. My buddy just landed a nice set of seats off of a 2009 Buick Rendezvous. Same price as some much more crummy seats that weren't have as nice.

You can also use the rear (bench or captain) seats off of a minivan, that should fit very nicely as well.

Nice trucks guys!
I have a 40 Chevy also.
I was doing some research and came up with this seat that might work good in our trucks.
I e-mailed them and they also sell extra material to match the seats so we can do the headliner, door panels, kick panels, etc. with.
I haven't measured my cab yet, but I think the 52" seat might work.
There here,

Here's a link for you. Save you measuring every seat in the JY.
Some second seats in mini vans work well too.
Your benchseat width? - THE H.A.M.B.

i realize this post is old, but a third row seat from a 2000's suburban fits in there like a glove. and it has seat belts already on it. fabing up the mounts was no problem. what did you end up using?

haven't gotten that far yet lol
I have the cab done in primer and the frame all boxed in and painted.
Next I'm going to work on the fenders, doors, hood and front end.
That should keep me going for the spring.
Thanks for the reply!
