I am researching the kinds of bench seats that will work in my 1939 Ford Tudor Sedan. I have a set of mid-60's T-bird buckets in it now and I want to go back to a near original bench seat. Thanks for your ideas.

I can't think of any stock split bench seats off of the top of my head as I used T-bird buckets in mine when I had it. I am sure some of the present 39-40 owners will be able to help you. Here are some links to aftermarket seats. They aren't inexpensive though.

Glide Engineering has three different custom split backs for your ride.

Wise Guys has them as well.

The other option is to measure the car up. Probably around 50-54 inches wide will work, then hit the late model wrecking yards with tape measure in hand.With a little finagling and a mig welder, mounting bracket can be made to order for just about any seat out there as long as the doner seat starts off at the right hieght or a little lower then you like . Too high isn't doable.
