Conversion from Bench to Buckets Seats in my 57 Baby Bird

I am considering replacing the bench seat with buckets in my 57 Tbird. Has anyone done that and, if so, I would be interested in hearing what seats you used or any syggestions on what might fit. Thanks!!

I installed 1965 Thunderbird bucket seats in my '57. IIRC, the '65 seat brackets were quite tall, so I swapped them out for seat brackets from a '65 Mustang which were much flatter. I added a '65 Mustang aftermarket cruiser console to cover up the missing carpet between the seats. Long-term plan was to replace that console with a more "period-correct" looking console from a '62-3 Falcon.
