My seat came out of an 02 Silverado with the 40/20/40 split and integrated seat belts.

Mine is from an '83 f150. There's tons of foam and real nice cloth cover. I used the rails and track from the '59 and with only a couple of holes to drill, fits right in. It's one of the best improvements I've made to the hard riding ole F350.

Listen to Spurredon, he gets right down to business without a lot of and directs you to the proper source. My headstone won't say "he was a man of few words".........

Don't feel bad, buddy, we all do. They're prone to sagging after 50+ years. Just pull your trousers up and tighten your belt a notch or two......

Does the Silverado seat use it's original brackets, or do you need to use the original Ford brackets? I just looked up some of these locally and they seem quite reasonable. $1-150.00. I like the idea of the integrated seat belts.

I used the back seat from an '08 Tahoe. It looks great and fits well. It's got nice high backs and head rests. No cup holders though. Couldn't use any of the old frame, and need to do some cutting on the seat frame to get it to sit low enough. The seat belts have to bold to the cab.
Probably not the best alternative, but it works.

My original seat was reupholstered and is actually in pretty good condition. The seat belts option really appealed to me

couldn't sit down when my belt was tight enough to hold up my pants so I switched to suspenders. Then there's overalls... and coveralls.
