    I have been scouring Al Gore's Interweb looking for a picture of the back of the seat in Gene Winfield's 1935 Ford shop truck. I can find all kinds of pics of the dash etc.

    The reason I am asking is I was planning on sectioning my seat riser similar to what he did on his. The question is "what did he do on the seat back?" It hooks in to the rear cross brace on the back of the cab. Just wondering if he added to that brace extending it down 3.5" to match the chop? I am guessing he did, but I would like to see some pics of the finished interior, if possible.

    Thanks,

    Root

    Yeah, not a fan of the caps.

    The truck’s 1950 Mercury wheels feature custom bullet centers and spun aluminum outer discs from Mooneyes. Each was topped off with 16 bullets that were custom-made by Advanced Custom Chrome in Erie, Pennsylvania.
