  3. It might fit but they aren't the same. They look different and are padded different. Its been too many years since I had a 56 but I remember its not like any 57 I ever had.

    The 57 was a different design from the 56 and you will probably sit higher,as the 56 seat is thicker than the 57's.

    Not the same. 58-59 Fords will probably fit ok if you can find one.

  7. There are 2 styles for 57-58, 300 and 500. They interchange but look different. 59 is all by itself. You can bolt in a seat from a 56 but you will be sitting about 3" taller in the car. Not a good deal. Also I just happen to have a nice 300 split back seat I could make you a good deal on but shipping would kill ya.
