I have brand new never installed "White" tuck-n-roll interior panels and headliner that I'm prolly not gonna use in my other 55. If you're interested......

Sorry man, no seats. The '64 Impala SS buckets I have for that interior are pending sale.

Interior pics

Here is my 55 with 63 Oldsmobile Buckets!

Basic Black is the only color you need for a gasser!

These seats in my 55 might be for sale in the very near future.

Mine is not what I want, so the first thing when I have it in my shop is to do some seat swapping. Might go with some low back bucket seat but don't know yet. Car is scheduled to ship out to Sweden in a month or so.

I just picked these up last night. Dallas Craigslist comes through again.
120 bucks. 100% complete all the way down to the seat track adjustment knobs :). The guy says he has no idea what they came from. Neither do I but hopefully someone here does.
They measure 21 inches at the widest point across the seat and it's worth mentioning that the seat risers are adjustable to compensate for the floors. and there is no release hook to flip them forward. They guy I got them from says that that makes them pretty early in the 60's, but who knows....

Here is the interior in my 57 Gasser..I think th seats are from a Cutlass. They have a push button in the center of the seat back that once pressed allows the seat back tyo tilt forward for aces to the rear seat. Back seat is covered in the same color material but without the buttons!

This is how I bought it:


This is what it looks like now:


The main difference is the Hurst Shifter ball and shifter boot, added the Original 57 Am push button Radio, and a new horn hutton.

Wish I could help you out but the wheel was on the car when I bought it. I assume it is a Grant and its small (Probably 16 inch). Other than that I have no clue...Sorry!
