The buckets in my '36 Willys coupe are from some Toyota or Nissan. Don't remember- got them in the early 70s. Whenever I need seats I just go to Pick-A-Part with my trusty tape measure and always find the perfect ones.

I do the same as Willys, I like the Ford Tempo, Mercury Topaz seats, some are driver side electric and most have an electric lumbar support.

rod seats

I got the seats for my 41 Willys from a 2003 Cavalier. They are like brand new and look like they were made for a Willys and Cavlier copied them. lol
My suggestion for the Willys is to look for a seat that folds flat forward so you can access the big area behind the seats. Good place to put groceries....if you have any $$$ left over after building a Willys.
Check out the bone yards. Some yard like to see you waste a whole day looking at old junk. You may have to ask for the good seats that are stored inside. Expect to pay about $300 for a pair. Maybe more for leather (why?) They know we are looking for seats and know they are expensive to have made.

I know what you mean. I paid $75 for my '36 from the grandson of the original owner and my hemi cost $25. Of course, that was in 1965 and I was a sophomore in HS. That $100 about broke my bank account!
