I used a bench from a 70 Impala, not perfect, but close enough for a Swiss Naval Project.....

If you're really in pinch, use some clear aquarium caulk and make a thin mold of the backseat, a couple of thin 1/4" coats letting it dry thorouhly, it will get you by. Cast your duplicate of the backseat and modify THAT into a front bench. The silicone obviously not the first choice of resin casters, but it's $2.00 and beats buying $30 worth of materials to do a backseat. It may help to put a very light coat of vegetable oil onto the backaseat first, but I've done without it. If your benchseat comes out really well, you can make a couple copies of that for future projects. I've done quite a few that way.
