Picked up a pic and pull seat for $55. It will need to be reupholstered.

thats exactly what mine looked like under a cover someone had added, the upholstery guy tried to tell me it was a 95 or newer but I got it from a 93 suburban, and they only used those floor brackets on 88-94.

he had to cut the "dents" out of the back, is why it mattered to him.

I plan on leaving the back cushion as is and eliminating the headrest. They had earlier seats that were flat but nowhere near as comfortable.

Re: Starting a 52 Chevy 3100 Project.

I am going to have them do them something similar to my Model A seats except the center is going to be cloth. Dark Gray vinyl on the outside and a lighter gray cloth material on the inside.

Is this mounted on a standard 3100 pedestal, or did you have to modify?

I cut out all the stuff from the 3100 pedestal I think it is on page 2 of this thread and used the one from the donor seat. It fits perfectly. I just have to drill some holes. I have heard of guys leaving them in but I like all the room under the seat it gives me.

Nice, hoses seem right at home. You going with the EGR delete?
I have been trying to run the EGR on my Swap but the free flowing exhaust is messing with it and causing idling issues. I may have to try the delete and chip program if it works for you.

Love the orange with the valve covers, looks nice together.

Thanks I am going to try and do it without the egr but will put the sensor in place. I am thinking about leaving the catalytic converter on it so it doesn't smell like gasoline.
