Could the seat frames be narrowed then re upholstered?
Have you considered a bench seat?
Have you measured early ford bronco seats?
Maybe the bronco has narrow seats.

The narrowest bucket seats I've seen are Mazda Miata seats which are 19 1/2" wide. About your only choice for something that narrow are bomber seats, which are typically 16" to 17" wide.

I used cavalier/sunfire seats in mine - I think they are out of a 2000.
