    I cut the van legs off and fabbed up some for my model A. I’m planning on getting some adjustable tracks from a supplier or the yard.

    I used the back seat out of a 70's Ford Bronco from U-Pull It. I had to cut about 3 inches out of the center. I also found a set of bolt on seat tracks that I adapted to the Bronco seat. They were on a seat laying in a truck bed at the same U-Pull It. I have no idea what that seat was from.

    I used seat tracks from an old bucket seat. Just mounted them further apart and made up a longer cable to hook up the adjuster mechanism.

    Friend of mine used a cut down tube framed seat out of school bus and reupholstered. Seem seat could be modified to use tracks pretty easily.

    Should be able to use tracks out of many vehicles. Just have to adapt them to that seat and fit your floor for seat angle.

    Small truck with bench seat should give you plenty of options. Rang*r, Sl0, Col*rado etc. Find something without a center console.
