I'd like to find a set too and perhaps integrate them into my project.

I'm going to post this in the Bvan forum aswell. I think it would be worthwhile to find a set and reproduce them. Making the seat frame itself isn't all that dificult but the folding/pivoting mechanizm as well as getting it the dimensions right will be hard with out an actual seat to go off of.

Anyone else looking for a set? Anyone have more pictures? When I get home I'll try and dig up all the brochure pictures I can find.

i LOVE this type of setup - i was working on a custom set last year, but i got a regular tri-section seat, then another plain fold-out...

i have thought about regular RV dinettes to put on the driver's side wall - something i might do 'someday'...

if anyone comes across some reproductions - or really good photos to replicate, that would be appreciated...

yeah, i'm a Chevy guy - but that's such an awesome design...

That is great! I wonder why the rest of the Big 3 did not copy that?

I know know there is some law now that you can't set in dinette seats while the vehicle is in motion but you could just fold the table up when you drove.

Ford had some passenger Econoline vans in the late 80's early 90's with the bench seats that dropped to a bed like that.

The problem with posting pictures and asking questions about semi-forgotten cool stuff like this is that just quadrupled the number of people also looking for them! laugh


Very Cool!
