Can anyone identify these jeep seats

Recommended Posts

Can anyone identify these seats removed from my jeep. The front seats appear to have plenty of age, the rear seat less so but what mod el of jeep were they made for?

Drivers seat - passenger seat - rear seat

 

Thank you

They came off a Willys MB. However, they do not look like standard, particularly the kick plate on the back of the drivers seat which protects the fuel tank. Also the is a thread bolt hole near the fuel sender hole. On the back seat there is no swaging ribs in the base of the rear seat. The seat back cushion where it attaches to the frame is similar design to an MA, I'm confused!

Thanks everyone for your help.

the passenger seat and back seat may be Hotchkiss, the kick plate on the back of the drivers seat has been modified, not original

Thanks Nick,

I had a feeling that the kick plate was a "field modification"! That said what do you make of the drivers seat, I am curious about the threaded hole near the cut out for the fuel sender. What might this bolt hole be for?

On the passenger seat can you suggest what the bracket is for?

The back seat, what feature(s) suggest that it is Hotchkiss? I have failed to find any pictures of  Hotchkiss seats on the internet

many thanks

It's for a modern fire extinguisher the sort found in domestic homes and public vehicles

Note the holes under the passenger seat. They would have taken the screws for the footman loops. For storing the Tilt when not deployed on the Jeep.  Agreed, the wire mount under this seat is most definately Post War. & can be bought These Days with the Fire extinguisher.
