Default 79 bench seat questions / idea...

My buddy has a seat in his 77 F250 that was taken from his 94 F350 dually that got wrecked (not his fault). It's super comfy and got me thinking that I would like to do something similar. My original bench is kinda rough, and I sometimes have the kids riding with me in my 79 wood hauler / spare vehicle, so a nicer seat is in order.

So, what year F-series trucks can I snag a seat from that will work easily in a 79 F150?. I have limited access to tools for fabrication, but I do have a buddy that's a tool & die guy who could make up whatever I need.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Why not ask your buddy what he did?

take a measurement of the seat and double check that against your orginal seat, then if fit in specs, swap the floor brackets, may have to drill couple holes to bolt the cusion to the brackets. seems simple enough or just get a makeover done at a upolstry shop.

Thanks MiNi Beast. Sounds like a solid plan.

Never Evil, I don't see him all too often, and I figured someone on here would know what years bench seat would fit into the older 70s f-series.

Thanks again for the feedback.
