My guess would be tractor. Possibly one of the larger garden tractor's of the 1970's or 1980's. They were built to last in those days, lots of them still in use today.

I could use a better seat for my old Case backhoe and I think that one would be adaptable,do you want to sell it?

Pick out a seat that you would like to have on your tractor.  Lots to select from at Tractor Supply.

I put one of those Chinese knockoffs like the yellow one on an old swather. The frame broke after a year's use and I only weigh 180 lbs max. Ended up bolting the new seat parts to my old John Deere frame pieces.

That seat is still bugging me... the thick padding reminds me more of the boat seats than anything automotive or agricultural, but boat seats tend to have lazy susan attachments rather for/aft slides. I wonder if it's industrial? Something like the 2nd seat for operating a backhoe or hydraulic boom? This replacement back seems closer...it's for an older Bobcat. Close this window I doubt that it's older than the late 60's by it's shape.

I new sooner or later I could fool you guys. Ha Ha!!! There was a number of NOS International truck fenders along with the seat my best guess would be a International Step Van I was unable to find pictures of the interior of one. The seat may be NOS also.

Not a tall enough back for anything like an Ice Cream truck or quick delivery in my opinion. I think they would have used a more traditional bucket like a school bus. Maybe a swather? I'm still leaning towards some kind of buddy seat for an industrial application.
