Thought so too Mike but had a (nice) chat with him last nite and was informed he was just doing the C series seat.  The one I have on this 1055 is a two piece cushion borrowed off a 1257 and its the same seat on my 857. Doesn't look like the same pan as what's on yours or if it is yours is not a two piece anymore. The back rest is mounted on a pan separate from the seat cushion..

Not everyone's cup o tea I know ....I have no idea why I went this route ..Prolly cause Dan went dumpster diving at his work and  gave me a slew of fasteners that are yellow zinc plated that I was using and it just kinda took off from there. Most of the hardware store bought  hardware is grade 8 to keep with the motif.  Also I had a really sharp 1980 Ford F-150 stepside in my younger days that was black with gold detail & pinstripes. This reminds me of that. I stick this thing in the dirt and get her muddy I don't think it's gonna show as much. Some of the tractor shows we go to they come back covered in dust.

I had a 76 Ford Courier that was red with gold modular rims on it back in the 80's. Its real familiar!! I'm sure I'll come around!!

      For sale is a 1056. I recently got it and now need to clean the place up some so this is the first to go. 10hp Kolher runs great, starts easy, smokes lightly when throttling up and quickly clears. Deck is in poor condition, has a lot of rust whole but still can be used. Tires good other than one front that needs a tube.
       
      Asking 150 obo for the whole tractor as seen below or will sell parts.
