New Seat Vendor for 48 Chevy Truck???

Looking to buy a new seat for my 48 custom Chevy truck. I have decided to buy a new instead of buying a junkyard seat. Just do to the fact they are "cleaner" without all the hardware.

I do NOT want an original seat , but a clean no hardware seat ........I am want a split bench with arm rest and head rest.

I would like to know of a good seat vendor??? I have checked with TEA's seats but they seem very high on price $1,100.00


48 Chevy Chopped 7 inches

If you want a new seat you're going to have to pay the price. Tea's seats are the best you can by and their quality is second to none. After all when you purchase a Tea's seat you'll be buying a custom made seat for your truck not just a seat that happens to fit.

There may be some others out there but no matter where you go it's going to be on the expensive side. IMHO the best way to go is with a used seat the right width and then have a local shop do a custom upholstery design for you. Will be a lot cheaper than a new one.

On my 53 I'm using the front seat out of a late 70's Olds Tornado. It's a white leather split bench with folding arm rest and is in immaculate condition. Cost? $75 at my local wrecking yard.

Good luck.
