A neighbor stopped by last week to look at one of my Studebakers and in the conversation mentioned he had a front and rear seat from what he thought was a 59 car but did not know the make or model. His wife was about to put them out for the junk man. He thought that they should be saved but w/o knowing what they are for it is a little difficult to advertise. Anyone have an idea? Note the numbers, 5-59 WSC-CHI 10/4522

They could be Ford maybe Falcon, the rear seat bottom is way to Low to be Stude. the front is quite close and could work in a Stude. They are for a 2 Door.

Nice re-upholstery job.

The style looks like 1959 Ford, but they are sort of plain to be for a full size model. The dimensions, particularly the width, will help to determine what size/series of car that they are from.
There were no 1959 model Falcons.
I just found a picture of a 1959 Ford Fairlane (full size model) with the same tri-tone treatment.
They should not be junked, but it will be hard to find the correct person/car for them.

A picture of the seat tracks may help identify them.

They probably are not Falcon, but there were plenty of 1960 Falcons with seats made in 1959.

Aso similar to '59 Plymoutn pattern, bought a new Sport Suburban wagon, orange vinyl with brown cloth inserts. Always thought of them as bench seats mimicking buckets.

I thought that the U pattern on the seat back went the other way on Plymouth wagons and were two-tone, not tri-tone.

My main point is that they do not look like Falcon seats. I doubt that there were production seats made for 1960 model Falcons in May of 1959.

A side view of the front seat lower cushion trim panel and adjuster knob would help to ID them.
