Question Bench seat in 53-55 panel

I was wondering if a 1953-56 F series bench seat would match up to the bolt holes in a 1953-56 panel & if anybody has tried this.?? The lady & me still like to sit close together. Thanks!!!

I had a 56 panel back in 1968 that had a pickup bench seat in it and the one I have now had the captured nuts under the floor even though the floor holes weren't punched out. Either way you would have not trouble installing one..

I guess I'll be putting a pickup bench seat in my panel because that's what I got with it and the panel buckets might be tough to find.

They are very hard to find, especially the optional fold down passenger seat.

that is interesting that the nuts are below the floorboards but the holes weren't punched or drilled out.

Likely because the floor braces are the same and the nuts are attached to them abe
