I read up on it and, performed a search, and I'm still not 100%sure what year it is. I thought it would be best for some experts to chime in! Thanks in advance! - wheelie pete

Can't recall down to the year I am sure someone has better info than me but I would estimate about 1962 to 1964- it is from a standard. I know 1962 is one year only seat. What year bus are you trying to fit it in to and how concerned are you about originality?

I'm selling it - I just want to make sure that I advertise it correctly, and that the buyer is 100% certain to get the seat he needs!

The color and the fact that it's heat-seamed instead of having sewn seams means it's from a '64.
Seat frame is the same 63-67
