62 RHD humpy front bench seat rare find

Post by Ady Hurry 67 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 6:33 pm

Hi there , i have been lucky enough to come across this original RHD 62 front bench seat the one with the hump in como green it was removed from a vehicle in the 70's and stored in a loft until recently.
I went to purchase it with the intention of trying to make it fit my 63 LHD single cab.
I have since been informed it is so rare to find.one in this condition and in this format that i must put it up for sale for someone that needs it and i have come to agree i am looking for £1250 o.v.n.o
Collection from j25 m1 near derby
More pictures can be sent on request.

The hump was designed to give a clear support to the driver so you see the seat divided 1/3rd 2/3rd..
The stitching has a wide panel where the hump is.
The hump is achieved by longer springs in that panel zone.
