Another option available for Bonney was a bench seat power unit. It was available on many GM vehicles. Hey, another upgrade for Bonney. Why not?

On a road trip via Tilley, AB, my car buddy and his friend happened upon a junk yard with vehicles from the 50s, 60s and 70s. They made mental notes of the vintage cars with power seats. A return trip in my truck with the three us resulted in a working bench seat from a 1971 Olds station wagon.

Once that seat was at my house the power unit was dismantled, restored and attached to Bonney’s bench seat. The control switches were cut into Bonney’s seat trim and they looked great. Bonney’s bench seat was then bolted back into position and the power unit connected. It works great!
