Need some assistance in finding a front bench seat for my '78. I'm currently running some older Mustang bucket seats. I am able to find tons of reupholstery options online, but no actual seats. Any help would be appreciated.

Junkyards. Benches from 78-79 Broncos and 73-79 supercab trucks should fit. I know the yard near me has 3 or so supercabs with benches. I'm thinking they are more common.

Yeah, I’m assuming actual Bronco seats are harder to find.. a junkyard does seem to be my only option.: I would just refit it with leather

Yo t30746,
"...All '80-96 Bronco & '80-97 F-series seats (bench, bucket, whatever) are interchangeable. The most you'd have to do is add wiring for the lumbar pump. The floorpans are identical where the front seats go...." by Steve

For a YARD SEARCH on-line, I use;
Hollander @ https://www.hollanderparts.com
A yard that uses Hollander Interchange can search other yards and have it shipped.
"...For over eighty years, Hollander has been making the best tool for fast, interchangeable part matches. The new Edition Hollander Interchange contains more interchangeable options than ever before.
The Hollander Interchange provides auto recyclers and auto collectors, rebuilders, and others with the easiest and most comprehensive solution for identifying interchangeable auto parts..." See their yard Directory @: Seller Directory | Used Auto Parts | Hollanderparts
