Out of the same deal with the Ford Transit wheels, I ended up with some more take-out Ford Transit seats. These are the 3 passenger 54" seat, 2 passenger 36" seat, and the single passenger seat by the side door with 4 stationary legs mounted on the floor. A few of these single seats are from 2019 model Transits so they comes with the quick release floor mounts.

The special deal with these seats are some are the Charcoal Leather factory seats. These are the hardest ones to get as take-out seats. The others are the Charcoal Cloth and Pewter Cloth seats that are more common as far as getting these from the handicap and conversion van companies.

I hope to sell these in the Texas area as well as the areas from Texas to Missouri on my trips to Matt Ford. The problem with shipping them are they have to be placed on a slid and covered along with going as freight like shipping via FedEx Freight.

Pricing on the Charcoal Leather seats; 54" $500, 36" $400, single 4 leg seat, $250
Charcoal Cloth or Pewter Cloth seats; 54" $300, 36' $250, single 4 leg seat, $250
The single 4 leg seat with the $250 price will have the quick release seat brackets.
Since these seats did not come with the removed floor mounting brackets, I will be selling the factory floor mounting brackets ordered from Ford for $52 each. All of the seats will use the same floor mounting bracket EXCEPT the single seat and it uses different mounting brackets if you place it in the same position as in the original passenger van by the side door.

would it be possible to use 2 of the single seats instead of a 36in to make a little path between?
I am thinking it would be nice to take my boys or my nieces camping every once in a while so I think a removable setup would be nice and 2 singles with quick releases would give that old school 4 captain chair van vibe :)
Also I thought I heard that the 36in recline a bit, do the singles?

Yes, these seats are from XLT passenger vans so they have the slight 3" to 4" recline, nothing like the front seats. If you are placing these in a cargo van, you can setup the floor mounting brackets just like you want to setup the seat configuration. By having the single 4 leg seats with the quick release handles, you could take them out as needed.

Just let me know your location as I may be making some trips through CO & MT so I might just load up with a group of seats and make a trip out of it.

I just got back from getting a couple of the Ford Transit Charcoal Leather seats. These seats still have the plastic wrapping from the plant on them. As you can see. these are NEW seats and all you need is the floor brackets to install them. I finally got the floor brackets I ordered from Ford over 4 months ago.

Note the recline of the seats in the last picture. Each seat has its own recline feature up to 4".

The availability of the NEW take-out Transit seats for the 2019 model will be coming to a close in a few months as Ford will be changing to different seat materials for the 2020 model. The 2015-19 model use the same seating material patterns for the vinyl and cloth seats and the leather has 2 different patterns with the early ones having the solid center panels and the later ones using the perforated center panels.

I have added more of the XLT seats in the Charcoal Cloth as well as the Pewter Cloth but these will be going away soon with the last 2019 Transits going to upfitters for conversion and removal of seats for these vehicles.

Yes, do you have a SWB 10 passenger van? You just remove that 3 passenger 62" seat and the 36" seat fits into the 2 LH mounts in the floor.

Where are you located?

Delivered a front 54" 3 passenger vinyl seat and 2 of the 31" 2 passenger vinyl seats (RH & LH staggered) to a dealer in Houston, TX for a HR XL Passenger van that was missing these seats. Now it is ready to be placed on the lot for sale.

While in the area, delivered another RH staggered 31" Pewter Vinyl seat for a customer adding it to his Econoline cargo van as a seat for his son. Liked the built-in seat belt feature and how easy it is to install and remove if needed.

Even though the CrewVan is available for the 2020 model, you can still make your own version with a cargo van and add seats from the Transit passenger van. Most popular is 36" 2 passenger XLT seat with the slight recline feature and the single armrest.The 54" 3 passenger is another available seat with the same XLT features. The 31" 2 passenger seat is a stationary seat with NO recline feature or armrest as it is part of the 4 wide seating between the inside rear wheel well area.

Will be shifting most of my current Transit seat inventory to making the Leather seating for the 2020 Ford Transit CrewVan. Through the Matt Ford CrewVan Edition, we will be offering a 54" 3 passenger seat and a 36" 2 passenger seat as part of the Leather seating package. ALL of the seats will have the matching Leather seating material with 2 colors options like in the 2019 Transit, Charcoal & Pewter colors. These will have the solid center panels and not the breathable knitted centers like in the 2019 model but like what will be offered in the 2020 Transit cargo and passenger vans which will only offer the Ebony Leather.

Ford Transit upfitters are starting to get a few of the 2020 Transit passenger van seats so the supply of the 2019 and earlier seats will not be available from takeout units. I tried to get as many of the 2019 seats as possible but when Ford started doing the 'delete seat' packages where they could get fewer seats in the passenger vans the supply of seats started getting smaller and smaller. With Transit buyers still making their own version of the CrewVan that is NOW a 2020 production model, finding the nicer seats may be getting short in supply.

The best part of making your version of the CrewVan is having the selection of the 2 or 3 passenger seat. You can even go with a single seat if that is needed. You can choose a 2 passenger 36" or 31' seat or the larger 54" 3 passenger seat that is part of the Transit passenger seating in a 8, 10, 12, 14, or 15 passenger van.

The 2020 CrewVan will only come from the factory with the 62" seat that will stick out over the step well entry for the side door. Matt Ford will be offering the smaller seats as a option as well as complete Leather seating for both front and rear seats. The 2020 models have a completely different seat pattern for the Vinyl, Cloth, and Leather seating with the Vinyl going to a darker color, the Cloth going from the striped pattern to a squared designed pattern and the Leather going from the breathable center knitted leather to a solid center panel.

I know this is an old post but thought I would ask something related. We have a 2020 crew and would like to put in a 2 seater 36" or 31" instead. Will those fit in the existing floor 'hooks' ? I think you are saying yes above. If so, what side would the two seater be oriented - behind the driver or behind the passenger? Lastly, can these seats be ordered from a dealer so we can get something that matches the front upholstery (cloth squared design pattern)? Is there a specific letter associated with the seat we would ask for?
Thank you.

@[email protected] i’m curious if the 36” double seat has car seat attachment points? Also, can you confirm that this particular seat has recline for each of the two seats? Or is it a single recline for both seats?

Lastly, will this seat fit in a 2020 crew van?
