Snyder's in Ohio is mostly a Model A and Model T parts dealer but they also do antique seat springs as per their ad in Antique Automobile. You could try them, just look up snydersantique.com

What you are describing are called Marshall spring assemblies.  Google that and you'll find suppliers, make sure you get a stiff spring for a cushion as many Marshall springs are very weak and won't make good cushions.

Snyders does beautiful work with springs. Expensive but beautiful. They have made maybe a dozen Packard springs for us using our originals as patterns.

As a sidenote:  GM used the A, B, and C body ca platform and you can usually find something close across the GM line - aka a Cadillac is also a Buick Roadmaster and so on.  You will need to replace any foam though no matter what you do- yellow snow has a dual meaning.
