Just starting to rebuild my 1949 Jeepster. I noticed the front seat frame is burgundy while the rear seat frame is silver. I am trying to stay as close to original as I can. Are these colors correct?

Thanks, Dan

Mine have original paint still on them.

They are all the factory red that was the original color that the outside of the jeep came.

The only thing silver are the footrests on the bottom of the front seats.

The frames in my ’49 are black, foot rests are silver. I have no reason to think they are not the original color.

My ‘49 frame were cream or ivory colored. I repainted them the same color. When sanding them there was not another color which led me think that was the original color. The Jeepster had the original rubber floor mats and original paint inside the windshield. After painting them, my recommendation is to have them powder coated.
