View Full Version : 62 Rear Seats

03-17-2006, 05:27 PM
I just picked up my seats from the upholstery shop today. I got a set of 62? Hawk buckets [horizontal pletes] for the front and used the stock rear. [this is for my 53 Starliner] I'm really not too happy with the layout of the upholstery on the rear seats, I wanted it to closely match the stock look of the front buckets. Does anyone have a good photo they could post of how the rears on a 62 Hawk should be. I think the design of the 53 rear seats [two piece bottom] and the 62 seats [one piece bottom] are a little different but I don't know for sure, haven't seen the later Hawk to compare. I need a good photo to take to the upholstery guy to show him that how he did it [the right way according to him] and show him the right way Studebaker did it [the way I wanted].
