Looking in the California high desert, Palm springs,or LA area for an original bench seat for my '63 Wagonaire. Will be reupholstered to match my interior.
Any leads appreciated.
Thanks, Kelly

Are you looking for a split bench or one piece bench seat? Reclining? I have a few, one is in a 63, others are from 1960's but as far as I know there aren't any differences in them to the 63.

I think the floor mountings changed in 61' the pre-61's had different holes to floor holes. So I guess a whole seat from a 61-66' would probably work. I know for sure that the 62 & 63 bench seats are identical....I'm not sure about the 64-66. They seem less rounded, but could be the Daytona stampings I seem to remember...too bad your not on the east coast, I have 2 sets of reclining individual setups for 62-63's....

Thanks for the information. I think some of the '61s had kind of a rolled top? Maybe that was earlier. I can't remember things the way I used to. haha.
I love the individual recliners, but I have someone interested in the car who wants an original bench.

I installed a split bench from a GM b-body. 6 way power, recliners and COMFORTABLE! I moved pianos for a living in college, have been wrenching forever, and put up ceiling drywall for years using my noggin for a drywall jack... and I'm paying for all of that now.
If it ain't comfortable, I am not driving it.
thanks for the reply! Kelly

I have a good front bench seat from a 61 four door, up in the San Francisco area but might be down south picking up a car soon.....Bob 510-266-2522
