Default Rear seat width out of a willy's MB/GPW

As some of you know I'm building a mini MB/GPW willy's. I cannot find any info of the width of the a rear seat. I was wondering if some of you that may have a willy's could give me the width of it.

Thanks

I have a stock cj seat in the attic. I'll get a measurement off of it.

Thanks

If distant doesnt need the rear seat- I'd take it ......

The GPW's and MB's rear seats were different in dimension[slightly narrower] due to the different mounting .....
I have 2 NOS rear complete GPW seats - they are narrower than the civilain styled seats...... the civi seat frames [VEC CJ2a,etc floor mounted where the fronts bent into brakets and the rears clipped into spaded foor clips....
The mil units mounted similer to M38's etc ....

Like I'd said- If you have a CJ2a seat frame, and distant doesnt need it, I'd pay for it..... put me next in line...

and if disant needs any pics of an NOS MB/GPW rear seat- I'd post'em

Thanks for the info. Can you give me the width a the NOS rear seat. If you check out what I'm building you'll understand what I'm looking for,click below.

I have a NOS front seat but it's to small for the wife/kid and I to sit on. I need a seat about 30" wide.
