Chevy blazer, ford ranger, dodge dakota, almost any from a mid-size vehicle. I used buckets from a '97 Caddy Deville in my '55 F100. Nice leather.

If you have a local junkyard near you, it would be good to bring a tape measure to see what fits. I did this when looking for a bench for my truck. I just spent an hour or so measuring everything I saw fit and then some, wrote it all down on a note pad and went home to compare with my interior.

Good advice. Go to the local Pick N Pull with your measurements and you will probably find seats with very good to excellent upholstery. Might even find some in leather. You would be amazed how cheap you can buy them. I got the 3rd seat out of a Windstar van with upholstery that looked like new for $50.

I looked for quite a while for a seat for my F1.
I drive it on long trips so I wanted comfort.
I chose a split bench, power seat from an 83 malibu.
The pillow seat back is real good.
I was 6' feet tall, so it is all the way back and tilted up just a little in the front.
The pass. side is not power, but adjustable.
Don't make the frame too tall, so the top of the drivers seat back will go back under the beltline inside the cab,
Not a lot of room inside those F1s.

Works good
