I need a front seat for my project. Seams that those that have come up, I was to late to grab, or they have been missing too many important parts. I have some shells, don't need the mounting feet. But do not want to re-build from scratch either. I have shipping arrangements with several carriers so I can get it here on my $$$$.

Let me know what you have, condition etc. Send me a PM.

They can be found. They are still at the Cars and Parts Swap Meet and Car show, every event, in Springfield Ohio, Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Stay vigilant. I bought one there in great shape, but missing the shells for $300. I later found the complete shells with stainless for $40.

Thanks, but those are not the same as Chevy. They look close, but the close will kill ya tring to make them work with original seat covers, which I will be using.

Mickey, I was under the impression the frames were the same size, since they were the same body, but maybe not. They gotta be alot closer than the aftermarket Guide seat frames people use and they seem to be able to install stock seat covers on them.

The side bolsters/shells are all different and the mounting for them is also. There are other differences. I have been down that road a time or two and don't wish to do that unless I have to.

I'll keep looking, there is one out there. Just need to keep looking. It's not like I need it NOW, but I do need one.

I have been around a few Glide seats, and I'm not sure I could put a standard front seat cover on it. And they just don't meet my eye the same.

Mikey, ever find your seat?
Been looking for one myself...I did see 3 people selling theirs, but never heard back when contacting them asking for pics.
I have found it, well several. Both were starter seats that were missing parts and had some issues. I have fixed about every issue anyone has ever had with 2 dr front seats, so not a biggy for me. The missing parts I have picked up here and there. So I'm good.
