Are the seat frames the same from a 56 4dr sedan and a 57 4dr sedan??

I have come across a like new set (front & back) of seat frames from a 56 4dr sedan that have been stored in an attic of an upholstery shop. He's had them for around 38 years and don't even have rust on them.

I would love to use them in my 57 4dr sedan, but I don't know if my seat cover kit will fit them or if they will they fit the car. :confused:

I think that there are some differences but I'm not really sure what they are, I seem to remember something about the shape or size of the backs of the seats and maybe the way the trim panels attach...

Somebody with better memory please jump in and help....

The backs are built different. The 57 seat back is a thin one and the 55,56 seat backs have a ledge type overhang on the back-top. I fyou can get them well worth the money i`d still get them.
