1955 Chev Rear Seat Frame Configuration Differences

QUESTION, can anyone tell me if you can use a rear seat out of a 4 dr. 55 Chevy in a 2 dr. sedan??

I just ran into this same seat configuration issue.

RESPONSE: The seat base frames are interchangeable, with one significant configuration difference.

The 2d post rear seat base has square corners on the front edge

The 4d post rear seat base has round corners. If you try to install a 2 door seat cover on a 4 door base frame, you will have 3-3 1/2 inches of unsupported cover material, at both front corners.

NOTE: The rear seat, back frames are common between both 2 door and 4 door vehicles.

The expert on this seat cover issue is Mr. Pete Ciadella, owner of Ciadella Interiors, Tempe, Arizona.
