As the title says im in the market for oe seats for my wagon. Was wondering what you all did. Its currently got one bucket seat and I'd really like bench. I want to be able to cruise with the wife and honestly I'm not a fan of bucket seats. Feel free to point me in a direction or just show me your set up. Thanks in advance

My wagon had a power split bench when I bought it. Power didnt work. I found a Cutlass sedan at a local yard. Low mile car. It had a bench with a folding armrest. Got the front seat and the rear bottom for $100 and had them redone. Its comfy. LOL

That interior looks amazing. Mine is tore apart right now for sound deadening. Hoping to get into the garage one of these weekends when it's not so bitter cold here.

I am a fan of bucket and console interior but I also don't have a wagon but if I did at the very least I prefer power 60/40 seats to have individual adjustability and when I had them in my Regal I modified a storage/cupholder set up to match, I also prefer both seats to be power which can be done to the passenger side with some modifications using a driver's side unit.
If you are willing to do the work StockInteriors.com has seat upholstery that works well but they are a few month wait last I looked.

I should clarify the bucket seat in the car is aftermarket race seat. Love the setup. I wouldn't mind a 60/40. Until I find what I'm looking for im going to using 2 mustang front seats( I know I know but they were just laying around the shop lol)

Hey, there's nothing wrong with a pair of nice Mustang seats. Add a console and it will look downtown. But if you're dead set on a bench seat, or 60/40, I'm sure something will turn up eventually. I couldn't wait to get rid of my old bench seat. But again, that's my taste and choice....plus it's seen better days.
Good luck in your search. Nice looking wagon, btw.

If you were closer, and had a tan interior, I’d let you have the solid bench from the Gypsy wagon. Not in too bad shape, but not going to be going back with it.

I actually do have a tan interior but I actually located a set of seats and need to update my listing
