    I am looking for a better front seat for my new Yorker, and am wondering what other years, makes and models might have compatible seats- to broaden my search.

    Currently has an original bench seat, but am open to all compatible options.

    '65 and '66 were the same. I don't think other years will serve you very well.

    Are there any other cars compatible, or is the new yorker different, of the same year, as the Dodge/Plymouth cars?

    The seats in the New Yorkers were top class, as the NY was the top car for Chrysler. (Imperial was a separate division in the '60s) While Plymouth and Dodge seats for '65-6 might fit, they will not look right in your car.

    If you need materials to rebuild your seats, I have seen complete kits, as well as the rubber, being sold through Legendary Auto Interiors. If you ave your frames, you will not need new seats if you buy the stuff from them.

    Drivers door skins got a couple bad spots too, but the rest of the interior is very good- just faded. 20190914_152338.jpg

    Whoops!! I just checked the Legendary site; I don't see anything there for your bench seats.
