    In your experience, what late model van or small p/u truck seat is the best fitting or closest in size to a stock model A coupe. I do not need it to fold down (nice option though) and I do not want a split version. Your help is always appreciated. regards, Steve

    Yep to the above! Comfy too!
     
  4. Steve, a real good choice would be an early 90's Dodge caravan middle or rear seat, I'm using 93 rear or 3rd row in my coupe and the back folds down, real handy for sure.

  7. Most any middle or rear two-place seat from a minivan will work, so the best bet is to hit the junkyard with a tape measure and sit in them and see what's comfortable.

    The van seats fit really well. Alot of the school bus seat backs taper from the bottom to the top.

    Look for a Toyota or Honda minivan secord row seat. I have used the american car manufacturer's seats and found that the way they put them together (with the support foam, materials, construction) is very basic. The imports typically have a reclining feature on them that increases the comfort level a lot.
