Note: For this seat to fit in my ’56 TF truck, the gas tank would need to be removed from the original position (behind the seat in the cab) to allow enough room to mount the seat and have adequate leg room and seat travel. I’d also want to be sure I had the seat track in the center of its’ travel before permanently attaching it to the floor.
Oddly enough, these seats do not fold forward. since they are from a 4 door car there appears to be no need for them to do so. Interesting thought (if you want to get behind the seat for storage). I will say that they will power tilt forward to at least 90 degrees and if you positioned the seat base right there is a lot of forward and back travel that would probably allow you to slide things behind the seat.
