  1. 1948 Lincoln, You are probably correct about the seat. I should have noted that the Red and Green plastic weave with the Grey bolster came on the Custom Cab models. I believe the Standard Cab models came with a solid vinyl material. I don't have my brochure with me now, it is with the upolstery shop who's doing my seat, but I remember the standard cab and the custom cab having different seat materials. There is not a lot of information on some of the older Ford P/U so I have been researching and referring to manuals and brochures for the information while I am restoring my 55 F100. Any information you have is certainly appreciated. I am now getting ready to paint the engine and have been looking for an engine paint that is the right shade of Yellow. I recently uncovered an inspection plate on the bell-housing that was covered with a 1/2" of gunk. When I cleaned it I found the, what appears to be, the original Yellow paint. It is more of a pale yellow with very little gloss. Hard to find an exact match these days. Blue 55
  2. I also have a 1955 Ford F100 which came with the original color sales brochure. I bought my truck from a family who owned it since 1960. My truck came with the red plastic weave seat material which the family remembers well and hated it and can't believe I would put it back in. I told them "I didn't pick the color, Henry did!". The truck is all stock so I have to do it. If you are still interested in a color picture my brochure has both the red and green shown. I can try and scan it and paste it on a posting, just let me know. The seat has grey sides with a grey pleated bolster on top and it waterfalls in the front with the red or green insert material. I also found the exact material at SMS Auto Fabrics in Oregon. My seat is in the upolstery shop right now being put back to factory.
