when where bucket seats first used 30's 40's ? probally in a 2 door sedan
model a's had them
Stutz Bearcat had them, as did many "speedster" type cars in the early auto days.
John Deere.... 1903
You might have to be a little more specific.
Well for one thing, cars with running boards didn't have a lot of inside width
Some of the first vehicles ever built likely used a bucket for a seat.
Some buggies had buckets and 1, 2 or 4 HP.
Got 2 1938 Nash Lafayettes together last fall... the 2 door sedan had buckets in it from the factory... mine ( the 4 door ) has the typical sofa
Early brass type roadsters had them.
thks just trying to figure where chevy got them from for the utility sedan , they are roundy and old looking ,probly a sedan ,the pas seat tips ahead
In modern era American cars, I think the 1958 TBird was one of the first....
The Muntz Jet is/was regarded by most as the first with bucket seats and a center console back in 1950...
Are all first gen manual bucket seat tracks the same (obviously side to side is different); but between each model......i.e. 4 door Blazer, ext. cab pickup, etc.? I realized that the one I took out of the 4 door Blazer will not tilt forward.....since it had rear doors and there was no need for it......which got me to thinking about the tracks. I don't see them being different. I just wanted to know before I start wrenching my back taking the stock bench seat out to drill the holes for the inner tracks. I was unable to get two matching seats today; so I ended up with a blue and a grey seat..........which I can pop back out later when I find a nice replacement for the driver's side. I figured for the extra $10.00 I could throw both seats in and deal with it.......and at least the work making the inner tracks bolt up would already be taken care of when I go to swap out the seat.
