Yes please. The seat should be two tone. The pattern I refer to is
actually the pattern of the grain in the material itself.

Howard, in followup to our discussions, I looked at the 55 and it appears
that both parts of the seat may have been recovered. It is all vinyl, no
fabric or pattern. I am assuming it has been redone. Do you want me to
investigate further? I can definitely get samples if you want. Let me
know. Byron

Subject: FTE Pre61 - PS bracket & pump for 56 F-100

In recent days there have been some postings concerning power assisted
steering on early trucks. AToyota PS Pump was suggested. I have deleted
those postings so I will post to the list FYI. While browsing the
October "Cruising News" I noticed the following classified ad which might
be of interest to those earlier posters.

"...56 Ford F-100 Powers Steering Bracket from Bob's F-100's and Toyoto
4 x 4 pump, $175 obo. Ian, 916-632-9855"
