      I am not familiar with that set-up. Is the front portion just to hold the belt until you put it on?

        Yes. I have only seen these in Hawks, not trucks. Probably correct, just not common.

          Those belts were listed as an accessory on trucks beginning with the 1956 2E models.

                Its VERY fitting for a Scotsman, but, shame on me to admit it, also reminds me of a 1970 Maverick.

                  No Shame... over the years plaid was use by almost every automaker. This particular plaid is by Mercedes and was used from 1955-57 on the 300SL.

                    I think it's pretty cool and genuinely like it, Mark...after all, the truck is a Scotsman!

                    Where did you get the material? SMS Auto Fabrics out there? BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                      Hi Bob,
                      Thanks!
                      I ordered the material through Mercedes-Benz Classic Center. (mbusa.com)

                        This thread makes me remember when I had several sets of NOS C-cab seat upholstery. This was a few years ago, before trucks were as popular as now. I remember giving one set to a guy that bought a pickup off me. I put the rest up for sale at $20 per set and rapidly sold them.
