Ugh! The junkyards here are so limited. I couldn't find anything worth using as a donor; no Aerostars, Astro vans, Saharas, etc. I think a Previa 2nd row seat would work great as well, but I couldn't find any of those either. Which is weird, considering we have a Japanese dominated market here, and there is a small cult following for 1st and 2nd gen. Toyota vans. There weren't even any modern vans with bench seats. And, in all the modern vehicles with 3rd row seating, the 3rd row seat is usually molded to fit the vehicle. I guess that's the price we pay for living on a rock in the middle of the Pacific.
Regardless, thanks everyone for the responses.
Vanny, that's perfect. That's exactly what I'm looking for. I saw one picture of the Falcon window version in google images, but there wasn't a lot of detail. So, I kind of thought it was just what someone named their project, not an actual version of the E100. The one I'm building is a Super Van. In fact, is that original blue seat with brackets yours? And, if so, are you willing to sell it?
Hip E Van, the Previa 2nd row bench seat is removable as well, but the striker brackets for the seat floor latches are surface mount. So, no welding required, drill only. And, it has the seat belts built in as well. The styling is on point too; meaning, it looks very similar to original. But, despite throwing 2 away in the past year or so, I can't find one of them on the island anywhere...other than my personal vehicles. I was able to find a modern 3rd row seat from an Econoline on eBay though that I think might work. But, that's a lot of money in shipping, never mind the cost of the original part, to spend on a guess.
Here's the link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/08-15-Ford-Econoline-XLT-Van-3rd-Row-4th-Row-Gray-Cloth-Bench-Seat-/382238128897?hash=item58ff2afb01:g:x-kAAOSwdPBZzQuF&vxp=mtr
I saw the link to the Smittybilt seats as well. But, the seats I've seen before in person that were made by Smittybilt look and feel cheap. I'd really like to see the Procar and Smittybilt seats side-by-side before purchase. The Procar's Scat seats are really popular with the VW bug/bus crowd, but they tend to look a little cheap as well. You know, kind of like a late 60's/early 70's quality materials that looks like it will quickly crack after being left out in the sun for a little while.
And, Jim, appreciate the input. I was noticing that today while taking measurements. I could see where the cushion has a different shape and size when someone actually sits on it. So, I took that into consideration when taking measurements as well. The Procar site does a good job at helping the consumer visualize the dimensions as well http://procarbyscat.com/seats/Classic-Lowback,
but I don't see any measurements on the Smittybilt site at all. http://www.smittybilt.com/product/index/205.htm
Anyway, keep 'em comin' guys. Your input is greatly appreciated!
