Oh no! I'm not stepping into 'that' one! 😉
It's been suggested (by other's) that they should bring around $800.
That's all I can say about that.

About 10 years ago, I couldn't give them away, so I threw a pair into the dumpster. How things have changed. Back then, everyone wanted the full bench seat instead.

Seems odd considering most FC's already have front bench seats.

The single driver side front seat was only available for R1205, and was probably frequently replaced during assembly with the full bench seat. It would have been preferred only for certain fleet and commercial vehicles; most of which, I suspect, have long since met the crusher.

Yes.
So basically,an unknown % of 48,000 Corvan units,out of a total of all 145,000 FC's (ever built) received individual seat/s.

For reference;

Out of the 35 FC's located @ the Connell hoard,there is 1 single driver's seat.
All of the rest are benches.

Yes, yes.
I have records for ~160 Corvans in the FC registry (including those for which I have only a VIN and a picture). Let's assume there are even 3X as many that still exist, which would be 480. That would be only 1% of the original total production. And if half-bench seats were found mainly in commercial-type FCs that were not favored among collectors, then of those maybe only a few dozen remain. And for how many of these, was a full bench seat later installed!
So save those half-bench seats.

If you examine one (or a pair) of those seats, or even the pictures in the eBay auction, you will see that the narrow seats are basically narrow versions of the full-with seat; similar construction, same materials & hardware. I'll bet there are at least a dozen list members with the skills and means to make full-width seats into narrow seats, needing only a few measurements. One could even use the material (metal tube) cut from the center to fab the mods to the inner 'skirt' area.
Cover with Clark's repro covers.

There is, of course, the flip-over feature and unique hardware of the passenger seat, something I would never use on a seat I expected someone to actually ride in.
Too hinky, IMHO. You can convert the passenger seat to regular FC slide-tracks. The seats has the mount points for the tracks, you only need to provide the mount points on the seat riser for the inner track.

On the mounting points...
It's been a while since I've looked at the assembly manual.
Can't recall if GM spot-welded angled stiffeners under the seat pedestal for all locations (for both variations) or not.confused smiley
