I'd post a trade ad up in the classifieds. Someone with a pre 67 bus might be sitting on your 67 2/3 style seat and want to trade. Yours is a beauty.

Picked up a great aero / pap short middle seat for my 21 deluxe


Problem is mine is a 67🤣. I didnt realize it was one year only. Can I make it work ?

Very Cool! Thanks Much! It's going in a Kombi, but I will save its current state for the right person that comes along.

yes please do! Someone will do you a good trade or something at some point.

WTH is this?!?

I always refer back to Lind's post #2 in this thread when seeking middle seat clarification and I don't think this made the list...Thanks in advance!

Yes, the photo is wacky and fish-eyed.

Agree that is not a $5K seat (yet) but wuld be hard to find if you had a Bus for it.

hi there,

im a newbie in writing messages in the internet.....so i read the whole thread and i found out that there are many questions about this theme...
and in these days i decided to join "thesamba", because i, the owner of a 1957 pgsg.

its been a looong story till now. at the end of 2018 i thought about getting a certificate from this car and wrote to wolfsburg autostiftung.
and on the 6th of february the letter came.....
first i thought it would be a 1958er....but that was not right.
the car was produced at the first of april 1957.
i was a little bit proud of having such a beauty...im still..:)
the next funny thing was, that i painted it first brown...with beige interieur....that was 10 years ago...

i had no middle seat and that was ok for me.

than i decided to paint it another way. there where many things to do and because of that i told the man who made the new restauration..."make it pgsg"....i love this combination!

and THAT was the other information from wolfsburg:

my car was produced in pgsg!

sorry for talking so long. there is a new flame in me with this car. it causes many "pain" in the past and still does( im in big trouble with the guy who said " it could take two years for the bus".....this happend in 2010!!)

...

so this feeling for the bus brought me here....

i thought about getting a middle seat.
so this would be nicer.

but than i thought about getting only a 2/3 seat.

and that was the beginning of my searching.......

now im here and i read everything but still have the question:

is it possible to build a baywindow 2/3 seat into a 1957 2/3 seat?

i have the possibility to get a 2/3 seat from a bay window...

did anybody build this from beginning to the end?

i try to put two pictures which i found here in my post....

thank you for your time, i will be better in writing english the next time. ..;)


kind regards

Oli ( de Oli )

I am not sure but here are my thoughts on a Bay Window seat conversion into a '57 seat.

The 1957 seat has a "flat" back rest so the Bay Window seat has the wrong shape springs on the back rest. I am not sure how you could correct this problem.
This may be a better photo of how the back rest is "flat" and not curved like 58 and later seats:


I think the bottom is the same shape? I don't know.
The spring are different but this might not be a problem if it's the same shape.

You would have to move the left leg - it should be on the edge of the seat as you see in the photo above.

The 1957 seat you posted has no arm rest.
It should have a "full circle" arm rest.
You could change this with some tubing and welding.
Full circle arm rest example


You would need to metal grab handle on top but there is a seller that makes this part.
