Buckets in '55 Bel-Air

After dealing with this *****ty bench with no support what-so-ever...i have a few quesions.

First, what is a good vehicle to look for buckets in?

Second, what issues will i have with concerns to pedals/wheel/comfort?

Pics will be on there way once i remember to take my camera...

re: buckets in 55 Bel-Air

"Back in the day", the mid 60's SS buckets and Corvair ( they were cheaper as they were eveywhere junked out), but I guess they are getting pricey now.

They feel good, just sit a tad high but when you nail that big block it plants you right to the floor.
