Default 41-46 chevy truck bench seat options

I`m picking up a 46 chevy truck project from a buddy soon and it needs a seat. It has to be a bench seat. Its going to be a rat rod with a hand made floor and I`ll probably build a new seat mount but I dont know what fits these trucks. Found a couple ford aerostar rear seats and a chevy extended cab rear seat. I guess I can narrow a seat but if I can find one the correct width that would be even better.

the chevy p/u back seat is probably too wide and I don't find them very comfortable. a lot of mini van rear seats are used but I don't know what ones are how wide or how comfortable. I would suggest hanging out at the soccer field and asking the soccer moms if you can try out their back seats and se what happen from there.

That is one of the best ideas I've ever heard.

What Torchie said. When I got my cab it had a Chrysler mini van seat in it. Has to be the old body style before they went to the split seats. Also some SUV third row seats are a good size too

Torchie.
My 48 F1 needed a bench seat. I used the rear seat from a mini van, and it was a perfect fit.

Agreed, 3rd row bench seat. Take a measurement on your cab and do the light fantastic thru the junkyard. I got one that is 42" across. It fits a 31 A. But there are lots of choices out of vans.

yea smallfoot these seats are a life savor for us A owners ..... if the Chevy cab is like my 41 Ford cab it is not a "square " cab but "angled " and for a good fit the seat would be wider in the front and angle back ?
