55 Caribbeans used a seat frame constructed and upholstered much like the other models.  56 Caribbeans used a completely different minimalist frame made of aluminum.  It has reversible and removable foam rubber cushions and was exclusive to the Caribbean.  Nothing visible interchanges with the 55s.

 

The 56 side cover is a thin sheet of brushed aluminum that has a tab which slides in position to hold the rear to the back of the frame and wraps around the front of frame a couple of inches.  Cover is held in place by screws.   Drivers side of seat has a carpeted panel in front to hide the power seat components, passenger side is open with the carpeted floor completely visible under the seat.
