I am building a 56 Victoria 2 dr ht and what I started with was a car that was parted out years ago. I am now searching for various parts to make it complete again. I have a theory that a lot of otherwise good 55-56 fords died an early death because of rusted front crossmembers. Anyway, I have a lower back seat but need the upper back seat. I ran across an upper back seat from a 55 Fairlane 2dr ht on ebay and wonder if anyone knows if the two years are the same other than the stuffing. I am aware that sedan seats won't work because of the side ashtray panels only on the two dr ht.   George

The illustrations catalog I have does not show the soft trim(I’ll show its cover) of the back seats of the Victoria models. In there are where these parts are shown, a reference is made to Soft Trim catalog #7515.
If some one here has this catalog they can look it if for you. I do not have one.
I did a search on a a 55 Victoria for sale on you tube. It’s turquoise and White if you find it. About 3/4 the way thru it shows the rear seat. It has the “notches” cut out for the arm rests like the 56. Since the tops were a different design they might be different but it sure looks like the on in my 56 Victoria,

I did the same thing you did and looked at some cars for sale on ebay. They both have armrest panels and both years appear to be notched out the same. Glad Ted edited both our posts and straightened out our pictures. I tried but I'm old and gave up.
