Iíve been giving some thought to building a wooden bench of some sort (or two of them) for the Roadster pickup. Iím thinking it could go in the bed and people could sit on the bench or benches for parades. Has anyone built a wooden bench for the back of their pickup? If so, do you have pictures? How do you secure or mourt them in the truck?

Funny, I've been thinking of doing the same on mine.

I have been thinking of doing something similar with my Hack. My Hack only has 2 rows of seats and not the typical 3 and my thoughts have ranged from a removable but 'pinable" for safety seat replacement, to removing the back seat and just running flip up seats along the side. That way I could use it as a pick-up for fetching things.

What I have in mind is to mimic the seat workings of an old military M-37 3/4 ton truck. Have not totally worked it out yet, but thought to share the thought should no one else chime in. (They hinged up and the angle supports turned 90 degrees flat when 'up'

I had an old school desk seat in mine. My truck is a beater and I just screwed it to the floor boards.
I took it out because it wasnít very pleasant to sit in for longer rides. One adult is about the maximum that will fit in the bed.

A friend of mine has a 1912 REO truck.
He has gotten some hardware from old farm wagon seats and is using that to put extra seating in the bed of the truck.

I'd build a simple removable wooden bench or two, to use just for parades. It's illegal to carry people in the back of a pickup at other times.

Or use straw bales?

If is just for parades then go to the salvage yard and buy a vinyl covered truck bench seat or a couple of bucket seats and bolt them in. They would be more comfortable for the occupants. If required you could pick up a couple of seat belts too.
