The seat frame included the frame for the seat bottom cushion and the back cushions as a one piece frame. There were hinges at the front of the tool box that allowed the seat to hinge forward all in one piece.

In my '48, the seat was a 2/3; 1/3 seating arrangement, but in later years the seat was a full bench, not split.
