    A 50 car it is. Mine in my 48 is all wood. My dad said it's not stock but I think it is because it has the small round holes in it like 4 of them in 1" diameter and you can see the under foam. Business coupes didn't have back seats.

    Back of my '51 Chevy rear seat back is wood also and it is stock. They didn't have very many materials to work with back then, just wood, steel, some vinyl/ plastic materials but that stuff is found only on dash knobs and door switch prongs.

    yes but my car is not stock .so how can you tell if had a back seat in it from gm? it dose now but the back is plywood and had small steel plate cover on the bottom ply wood part ?and the only thing that differs from the coupe and the bussines coupe is the back seat so if some one made a seat for it and put it in. it still could of been a bussines coupe from gm ??why would somone take the time to put a inspecstion cover in the bottom of the seat??? this is somthing i could not figure out

    They could have gotten it from a coupe and put it in there. There was NO SEAT in a business coupe. They did this for business of course for suitcases, etc so saved room. You should be able to tell by the floor. Business coupes were basically straight floors in the back with little indention. Coupes had a raise or level for the back seat.

    1950 chevy seats-

     



    I bought a complete set of leather seats out of a 2003 Cherokee and they will work front and rear with some mods


    QUOTE=Mack Black;126675]Looking for two bench seats, I've got a '50 Chevy that needs a front & back seat. I bought it with two swivel bucket seats with armrests from a van or a boat installed by the previous owner and it has no back seat. I hate them. This is not the look I want for this car.

    All I really need is for someone to agree that Chevy bench seats from a pick up or any other Chevy of similar styling will fit.

    My welder buddy says he'll buils a mounting rack for whatever I get as long as the seat fits in the car.

    anyway, any help or suggestion is appreciated.[/QUOTE]

    Hopefully in the last nine years Mack figured out his seat needs. This thread is from 2005.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.
