Hey welcome to the site, that's a nice looking rod ya got there. I went through the same thing on my 34. I even bought a couple of OEM bucket seats and mounted them in the car, but was never really thrilled about them. Then my wife and I went to the NSRA Nationals in Louisville and I saw a display by Tea's seats. I had looked at them online and they looked like a good seat, but a little pricey I thought. Well my wife plopped down in a bench seat with split reclining backs and that was all it took. We ordered a seat at the event right then. These seats are not cheap, but there is no other seat on the market that is as comfortable or fits the car it was designed for. The small cab of your car IMHO necessitates a bench seat. You can get a bench seat with a lift up bottom for storage. The seat we bought was $2100 upholstered in gray leather. Yes, it's a lot of money, but you probably will be spending a lot of time in your coupe so you might as well be comfortable.
