1955 Chevy Truck Advice

New to this, but I just got into a 55 2nd generation chevy pickup and wantin to restore. I may/will be asking some dumb questions, and I'll apreciate all the help to get this project done. I'll post some pics soon!!

I guess first question is, what is the best(price and quality) online part supplier for a 55 chevy truck? So far I noticed LMC when I googled 55 chevy truck

bench seat

Thanks guys, I ordered door relay, handle, strikers, and weather strip today (my wife payed for it as christmas gift for me) all from lmc.
Would anyone know what bench seat with intergrated seat belts will fit. My truck have a bench looking seat with a center that folds, wich is ok but NO seat belts and we have a 4 year old boy that is looking forward to ride this truck.
