    Unhappy Need to replace seats for 1950 Chevy

     



    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.

    Well, I got a four door, I'm gettin desparate.

    I got a lead on a late 70's ford p/u, with a bench seat for 20 bucks. I'm gonna measure it up for fit...

    You know, I visited a couple of yards in my town and these guys are #*@$'n uncooperative as heck, nobody's got seats to let go of... jerks.

    anyway, i'm gonna checkout this p/u today, thanks guys.

    2 mainstream models made from '49-'52, which was the styline which was any car that was not a fastback style, the fastback was the Fleetline, both styles came in both 2dr and 4dr.

    sorry folks but a business(man's) coupe has no back seat here's the proof but the "Sport Coup" does. the business coup was exactly what its name implies, it was used mostly by the salespersons of the day & the backseat wasnt used so that area could be used to store their goods. all that was there was a piece of plywood...joe

    Hellraiser...
    Just movin' the car between shops today. I think I'm gonna scrap the roof chop though, the line on the back of the fleetline is gonna be tough to chop and match up. If you have a coupe though I think it'll be a lot easier 'cause they're kinda notched just below the rear window.Should be gettin' busy on it early next week so I'll pass along some pic's as I get going.

    I hear ya. I was looking at that as well on mine and I hear they are pretty hard to chop on a 48 but if you go an inch or less I hear that not much is needed but if your gonna chop then why in the heck will you do less than an inch? I have some sweet pics of a chopped 48 with pie cut hood like I want, the fenders are reshaped, etc. It looks really sweet.

    Update...

    Sorry I disappeared... but, still haven't found anything that's gonna work. I'm gonna build a wood frame to fit and have it upholstered. I'm skilled enough for that. I'll get back soon with the progress.
