55-59 and 60-66 bench seat the same?

Does anyone know if the 60-66 seat is the same, looks like it would bolt right into 55-59?

Nope, too wide. the 60-66 cabs are wider.

I tried it once, When I put it in the cab I couldn't close the doors.

87-98 I believe are the correct width.

I put a '98 seat in mine. It's corect-ish. It's still a little wide for my liking. Works well, but the seat foam is ever so slightly bolstered and lines you up a little left of the wheel. Pretty much only notice if you're paying close attention.
