    Does anybody make a replacement bench seat with headrests?

    I’ve seen some nicely restored squares with bench + headrests but I don’t know if they were custom made. I’m not looking to spend a fortune. I have not seen this at LMC.

    Thanks

    I think the early 90s bench seats(92-95ish) had a headrest. Could just adapt to your rail. Ive seen that done and turned out looking like oe

    obs fords had headrests in the benches depending on year, some were even split bench. the real basic trim XL, XLT really got them a lot. But the floors are shorter I think, but maybe brackets could be made

    I believe the head rests started in '92. Then the seat design changed a bit in '95 and looks more modern. Imho, the '92-'94 Silverado trimmed solid bench is very comfortable and looks right at home in a squarebody truck.

    Wishing I could have caught the guy who I was zooming in the highway with past Columbus I think it was in a quad headlight setup eighties vintage... Saw the headrests and went O.O and a holy crap! Him: \m/ rock on! \m/... He had some wicked looking headrests in his. Wish it hadn't been impossible to snag a photo.

    I do remember the white trim above the window line, and the truck seemingly red, but suspiciously orange in truth and one throaty son of a gun.. find him we can get a good direction going!
