The green seats are included in the Johan Comet P/S and the white are from the Maverick P/S.

Does seat #20 have the number 81 on the backside, by chance?

I think the light blue seat, #18, is the custom seat from the AMT '49 Ford kit. Does it have the hollow, round cylinder on the bottom?

Yes #20 has the number 81 on the bottom.

Yes #18 has a hollow cylinder on the bottom.

NOTE: The AMT '33 Willys kits have a pair of seats quite similar to #2 shown above, but with sharper side bolsters (as though the bolsters aren't upholstered). Each seat is on a pair of stanchions approx. 1/4" high. One has belt detail, one does not. 

(Pix when I have time)

I don't have a picture, but the recent release of the Pinto Cruising Van includes the old Pro Stock bucket seats.

I thought #19 might be the soft vinyl seats from MPC, so I dug out my original '69 Firebird annual and looked at them. The overall shape is very, VERY close, but mine have horizontal, not vertical, pleats, they're molded in black (like tires, natch), and the sprue points are on the sides, not the fronts. So, no cigar. But I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they're from an MPC something.

Then they are the custom seats from the 1/24 Monogram '55 Chevrolet/Badman kit:

Box art identifies the Maverick seat as a " Solar Bucket Seat."

Here it is on the instruction sheet:

Not sure where these came from, either, so I'll add them as #24...low back with no headrests, so pre-1970 or so, AMT or MPC?:

I'd say those are from the MPC "California Flash" Duster pro stock.

I agree, thanks.

Looks like the MPC 'Screaming Eagle' GTO Pro Sock kit included yet another bucket seat, too:

Those look like your #19 with seat belts added.

Is seat #13, the black seat shown below, from the MPC Carl Casper Cosmic Charger (and the other 'sibling' kits which share many parts)? Nope, not from that/those kits. -_-

The yellow seat below is from the AMT Sandkat/Piranha Dragster kits:
