As far as I know all parts are still available for those to keep it running for hair cuts and chick picking. LMC truck and brothers if you are looking for a new seat. Mine came with a back seat out of a van I think as they are kind of narrow.

I would recommend you say away from LMC - they just relabel products and slap $20 on the price - sometimes they don't even relabel the box.

Late 50's would be quite uncommon (not even possible) to see 16.5" wheels. Most common would be 15" (yes, even on 3/4 tons) or 16" ring locks with 17.5's and 19.5's as a less common option.
