Best Bucket Seats for a 55 Chevy

I have to agree with Jim57. Some 2001 and up Chevrolet and GMC trucks come with bucket seats which will work and include the full seatbelt system so you don't need to make any mods to your car beyond getting the seats in. I have a link somewhere to a site where someone did this exchange. I think it was on the trifivelcom website. Check there. You don't want seats from a four door truck, eg, anything like a suburban, etc. It must be from a 2dr and the seat must fold forward or you run into a pain in the *** to get anyone into the back seat of your Chevy. Seats can be found on ebay for roughly $300 a pair, some, not many, with free shipping within lower 48 states. Or of course you can check your local wrecking yard. Regarding leather seats, most used drivers side leather seats show a lot of wear, so I am just going to order a new set of seat covers, then redo the back seat in a similar pattern and matching leather. One more thing. Bolt the seats to a crossmember or other strong part of the car underneath so the seats don't pull out of the floor in an accident; otherwise you would still be belted in but with a steering wheel imbedded in your chest. Best of luck to you on this.
