Ric's 1951 Ford Truck

The guys at Cerullo just finished this beauty today that will be going in Ric's 51 Ford Truck in Arizona.  He chose to use Cardinal vinyl and added cup holders to his armrest.  This style of bench seat has tapered or "sport seat style" backrests and added headrests.   The bench also has a special feature in it's flip up bottom, allowing storage under the seat.    It comes with the mounting hardware and sliders. 

 This was a fun job.  I always say we get an extra kick out of working on seats when our customers use bright colors like this.  We're really looking forward to seeing the seat installed.

75-81 Trans Am

We now offer a complete front seat set with rear seat cover package for 75-81 Pontiac Trans Am.  

Check out this black and tan XR Sport Seat with the matching rear seat cover.  

A question was raised by a customer about beaten rear seat foam and what you can do if you order a rear seat cover but you know your foam is different from it's early days.  If you wanted to change the interior of your Trans Am with new front seats, and your rear seat is in fairly good condition, you still may need a little boost in your rear seat foam.  After all, you're getting brand new everything in a custom aftermarket front seat.  The rear should match.  Most auto upholsterers who can pull your new Cerullo rear seat cover will have the ability to add a new layer of foam to fill out the seat and add comfort.  Or of course, speak to your favorite Trans Am parts people about options.  We welcome customers sending us their rear seat to cover, but freight can be a killer.  There is often an easier way if you live cross country.  Give us a call for a quote or speak to Ruben at Classic TA in Florida!

1970 GMC Truck Bench Seat

We had a call from a special customer, I can't say who, that ordered a new bench seat for his classic truck.  We used black vinyl with perforated inserts.  This bench seat has a solid bottom with a split backrest.  The ultra fun thing about this seat is that the bottom also flips up giving storage space under the seat.  It comes with sliders and mounting brackets allowing easy installation.  This seat frame comes from Glide Engineering who is located about 15 min east of us making it real easy for us to collaborate and offer a complete seat to our customers.  This was a fun project to work on. 

What do you think?

1957 GMC Truck Bench Seat

We are proud to have been chosen to make the seat for this customer's son's birthday.  Our customer was completely restoring this classic truck for him and I'm certain his new flashy interior is going to make this the best gift he's ever gotten.  It often feels risky using such bright colors, but it almost always works out in the end when the seat is installed.  

The truck was recently painted blue (an exact match to the Pacific blue we used on the inserts) with lime green accents.  Thanks M family for picking us.

1956 Chevy Truck Bench Seat by Cerullo

This seat was made for our customer Dan for his 56 Chevy truck.  Typically this seat is available with tapered back or just a split back with no arm rest.  Dan had to have the square backs.  This is why he came to the right place.  We worked closely with Glide Engineering (who made the frame) to swap out the usual style of backrest for what our customer wanted.  We made new patterns (so now we have them if you or someone you know likes this), and the seat is now ready to be installed. 

We used Katzkin Tan vinyl.

65 Nova Front and Rear

We had a customer with a 65 Nova that needed 2 new front seats and new upholstery on her already existing rear seat.  She chose the Classic Bucket for her front seats.  She was short so her concern was that she wouldn't be able to sit close enough to the wheel.  Simple fix:  we added 1" of foam to the backrest of the driver seat (her personal throne) to push her forward slightly. 

 

We got a surprise when we took her rear seat apart.  The original foam had turned to dust and the frame was so rusted, we were scared to touch it.  Check it out..

We had to sandblast and powder coat the frame to ensure it would last for years to come.

Everyone was so happy.  Success.  Next our designer made a pattern for the rear that matched the design of the Classic buckets and this was the result.

In the end, it all worked out and our customer was ecstatic.   We're dying to see the photos of everything installed.  Richard at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff in Escondido made custom mounting brackets to install her front seats.  Thanks to everyone involved.  Great project.
