    I am changing from a bench seat to bucket seats in my 40 Chevy. I am also having a custom console built. I am heading to Pick-A-Part tomorrow to look for a pair of seats. I have done all my measuring, but I was hoping maybe someone on here has done this and could steer me towards the seats that will fit the best
    Any suggestions gladly accepted :)

    What a shame.... My opinion. Sorry.
    When I see buckets stuck into cars like that it's like a wart on a pretty face. Sticks out terribly, but that's why the stock seat go for good money.

    We all have different opinions which is what makes the hobby fun. My 40 has a bench seat with a pull down center arm rest. Since we drive this car long distances we need cup holders and a glove box, plus a center arm rest. Thus bucket seats with a custom console. The console will give me room for the above mentiond items plus the A/C controls and a couple of power ports for the i-Phones. Oh and buttons for the seat heaters.
    My buddy had a couple 2000 Mustang seats that I picked up this afternoon to try. Will know the answer to that tomorrow. Best part....FREE :D:D:D

    You would be surprised how many people don't know that.
     
  8. Opinions are like arse holes,,we all have them but 2000 Mustang seats are gonna be too tall,,even without the head rest.

    And like said earlier,,this site is traditional,,,I was under the impression a 40 Chevy had a glove compartment,,,and cup holders?:confused: HRP
