Bomber style seatsPLEASE NOTE: We have acquired this product from Rotten Leonard’s Jalopy Shop. We will be using the original tooling and same quality material to produce Bomber Style Seats.

Bomber seats gained popularity back in the 1950’s when hot rods were being built with surplus parts and automotive design was heavily influenced by the engineering and parts used on airplanes. Surplus military bomber seats were a common upgrade into home-built hot rods. This style and influence still remains popular today and provides that nostalgic hot rod look lots of hot rods are built with.

Our Bomber Style Seats are perfect for a real hot rod that actually hits the road! You won’t just have the bomber seat style, but you will have much more of a comfy ride as well (as most original bomber seats do not have any cushion or padding available).

The Bomber Style Seats are typically sold in pairs and are available in red, white or black with a vertical pleat formed by heat on the vinyl and black with a diamond stitch pattern. We use new, high-quality upholstery foam padding that provides good support at two inches thick. Our Bomber Style Seats are made from .060” aluminum sheet and 3/4” cabinet grade plywood with real aluminum rivets. The dimensions are approximately 19” deep, 22” tall and 18” wide with a 13 degree lay back. The bottoms have six 3/8” coarse thread holes that you can use for mounting your seats.

These seats are not perfect, show quality seats. They may have some minor tool marks, light scratches, and could need light de-burning, but that is why they are a fraction of the cost of most other seats offered currently.

The seats are 100% built in the USA – right here in our own shop in Idaho. We can also make custom width seats upon request if the standard size doesn’t work for your particular application.
