sedanbob My back seat in my '33 sedan is a front seat from a coupe. I bought mine from Wise Guys - very comfy. We sent them the fabric so it would match everything else. They have different sizes for different vehicles. They also have an option to lower the seat cushion 2 inches, and you can chop the back too.

panhead1961 They are building a seat for my 34 Chevy sedan now.

I figure I was spending upwards of $40K on my 34 why in the hell would I want a wrecking yard seat in it. This is just the way it arrived.

I will definitely check them out. I like the looks of the seat to include the kick up at the front. Thanks for the info.

do you know what it would cost to ship a seat to you from Ga.

Anyone have any experience with either of these seats long distance? Recommendations for or against?

I know the full size may have to be narrowed a bit, but 3 people will be able to fit more comfortably than with say a Ford Ranger seat. I wish you had been nearby. I sent 3 original seats to the crusher because I couldn't find anyone that wanted them.

ogre- reference the low profile, I meant the height of the seat bottom as I'll need to sit close to the floor.

ogre your not going to find much in the way of a low profile seat unless it comes from an old vehicle
most newer seats have high backs or medium high with headrests
for my 58 truck i used 07 for fusion seats with the headrests removed and a 6 inch chop
very comfortable

they do not meet any of your requirements, just an idea to look for what fits the width and make it work

BOBCRMAN@aol.com Go with the 96-97 Dodge 1500 seats. I have three of these trucks and they are very comfortable cloth seats. I have made a couple of cross country trips in one and the seats saved my donkey!
