I can take a few pics of  the 3rd seat frame (the long one) and take 
some measurements if you like. Mine came out of a 1959 GMC burb. Do you 
know if anyone has checked to see if the early 60's burb seat frames 
will fit? Maybe Santa will bring me a middle seat frame for Christmas!?! 
Then I can use my extra set of front driver's cushions for the middle seat.
