    So, im redoing my bench seat in my '51 Chevy PU, and its been eatin way from either someones big ass butt groove, or some god awful bug! I want to re-do this seat the least expensive way possible... The frame itself is in great condition... I am concidering just stripping it, and then putting in a new wooden board, some new foam and fabric, then wrap it, staple it, then screw it on to the frame.. Anyone have any better ideas?

    I put a late 90s full size GM truck bench seat in my 49 chevy pu. Fits perfect.

    ditto. A seat from a mid 90's chevy fits great in many old trucks.

    Try an ad in the wanted parts. Someone locally may have a good seat that they replaced with buckets.

    I'd hate to be the voice of reason, but LMC truck has the pad for $35 and tailored seat covers for $169 to $189. Two hours and you're done and they would be brand new.

    If you dont have any luck, PM me. I have a REALLY nice seat out of a 56 Ford car in GREAT shape and will let it go really really cheap.
