Nope.....



Thunderbolts used dodge van front bucket seats. A-100 dodge van seats to be exact. Good luck finding a set, just like original fairlane bucket seats...... Rare as fuck!

NO ONE reproduces the "factory" thunderbolt seats. If you look on the HAMB you'll see that some say early dodge van seats & others say early ford econoline seats. I went with the '64 econolines.

Good luck finding them ... took me about 6 months.

Hell I think I have a pair of them in storage. My uncle had a lot of stuff when he closed his shop, and I remeber putting a set of bucket in storage that were either dodge A100's or econoline. Will have to go check them out.

They were made by Bostrom which was a supplier to the big three. They were common in Dodge vans.

Are they stamped with any kind of marking or company name?
