'55 and '57 Chevy Pickup

I have two project pickups, I am wondering what seats people have used. I will entertain any suggestion. I am leaning towards something without a real high back, what I mean by this is I dont want something that is visible from the back window. So any suggestions on what has worked well would be great. Marc

In my '65 and '66 Chevy trucks I reused the original seats- just reupholstered them. This was done at our local Vo-Tech school for the cost of materials. Was about $55 for one and about $75 for the other, but I had the visors and added scuff/heel pads to the set of rugs.

Not very 'exciting', but you sure can't beat the fit- or price!

Later on they did the bucket seat covers for my '81 Camaro. Look into it if you have a school like that in your area.

That is a great idea, we have a community college in the area, I will check, I am wondering if the high schools auto class would be interested in this also. Thanks for the out of the box thinking. Marc

Unfortunately, both my trucks are long gone.

You might want to keep an eye out for suitable project material in the classified section (look at the top of the page, click "Classifieds")- it's free to post for selling parts or cars, etc. and to post want ads- so check it out!

thanks for the interest, Gander, I am not going to sell either of the trucks right now, but I have about 43 cars. All of which are in various stages. I do have a 1950 chevy sedan, that would make a nice project.

I am also going to look at another 55 chevy pickup on sat. Let me know what you are looking for and I will do my best to help you out. Gander, your settings are also blocked from sending private messages. Marc

Seats from 88-99 model GM trucks will work fairly well.
