Well it was in a half soup can building next to a barn. Introducing my new Cruiser, I do have the original bucket seats. Dust was N/C.

Certainly looks like a good find Jack. Tell us about those seats. I've never owned a Stude of that late a model, but, for some reason, those seats look very comfy and plush for a Studebaker. Reminds me of the seats in a couple of high end Chrysler sedans my wife has had.

Ohhh! Me like! Remember practically drooling over a nearly identical one in 1964 as a 16 year old kid. (reclining bench though)
That Bermuda Brown is just incredible when polished.
Lark types were rare in my small town, ended up owning 6 over the years, down to 3 now.

Jack glad to see you have joined the Cruiser Club. Nice looking car. You'll love it out on the highway. Hope to see it before long.

Yep it's got Chrysler seats in it but it comes with the original bucket seats......
One seat needs the fabric insert.
Any one have a set of brown with fabric bucket seat covers.
I also have a complete red and white bucket seat NOS 1962 4 door seat covers and door panels for trade I don't think red would go with the brown...........

Nice find. Was it advertised or did you just happen upon it?

I don't recall if it was the New Yorker, or LHS, but those seats did look familiar to me. For what it's worth, Donnie has had several cars since, and with her back troubles, she is very sensitive to what is comfortable and what is not. To this day, she claims that those Chrysler seats were the best, and, so far, nothing since has measured up.
