Default Bench Seat from a...?

The elder Tripper got me in touch with a 63 Chevy C10 project.

I'm pretty sure the 50/50 electric bench seat came out of a buick, but my google-fu is weak. I find a lot of seats that have the same chrome trim around the back and bottom, but none that look quite like this guy. I'm hoping to find a new cover... and, just maybe, hook up the electrics

Any ideas where it came from?

The seat looks like it, but I didn't find any (Google Images) that had the full chrome like that. I may have only been seeing only different trim packages.

BTW, is it just me, or is Google getting harder to successfully use to search? It seems like I get A LOT MORE garbage returns in my searches as of late.

Oh yeah - nice score on the truck! Tell Tripper Sr. you want to 'Donk it' just to watch him squirm a little.

If you take the seat out it may have a tag on the bottom to help identify it.

@sneaky: i'm almost sure that last one is it. of course, somehow i managed to not take a single picture that shows the very top of the back of the seat properly, but that looks it.

Thanks!
