It's a factory bench from a 69CST. The foam and cover has been custom made with the side bolsters and center hump by the upholstery shop I used.

Thanks.
Excellent work by whoever did the design on that seat. I can only hope i can find a shop in my area that will produce similar results.

Holy jeez man, the bed looks pretty bad as well. Might have to invest in another truck. Thats what happened to me. Bought one from a buddy that was sight unseen all we wanted was the cab, got it home, stripped, it down and ended up keeping nothing but the door hinges, and i suicided the doors On mine so i got nothing from it lol A waste of $850 and hours of work.

Re: Before and After pics

When I bought it and brought it home...it was complete and driveable, which I did for 7 years. Now, it is completely apart and driving me to the point of parting it out....no, don't ask on this thread.

Re: Before and After pics

Here's mine when I picked her up around the 2nd week of January this year...

My 'after' is more like a 'during'... I still have plans to do a lot more to it, but she's my daily driver in her current state...

Haven't done too much - put on the correct style rear bumper and cleaned up the bed rust and shot some clear satin to preserve it as is.
