Good moring

Hey guys and gals, my name is Bud and I'm building a 50 chevy 5window pickup Hot rod. The frame is done, mustangII front end 4 bar rear with a 72 nova rearend. Powered coated the frame. I'm working on sheet metal now. We just sold our house and are moving so that slowes things down. I'm a carpenter, working for the church I attend(I know that may sound like a contrection of terms)Life is Good and God is GREAT. I've been reading lots of your posts for the last few years and want to say THANKS Bud Lenker Salem Ore

Welcome to the site came to pass. I had a 51 5 window a few years ago. They make great hot rods. I had a set of mid 70's Chev buckets in mine. It seems a lot of builders are using mini van seats in their rods. I had a mid size 85 Buick Century with the 60-40 split power seats. I think they would have fit. Take a tape measure and head to the junk yard. Good luck.

No down side to buckets at all from my point of view. Mid size 80's and min vans will be good starting points I would think. If you have the money check out some of the bigger foreign cars for leather.
