Default 40 deluxe seats

I need some advice on the seat covers for my 40 deluxe. The front seat only has two sets of ribs sewn in but the Ford book says there should be three. I assume the third set is in the bottom seat only because of the sedan back is split. My back seat has no ribs at all. I don't know if these are original seats to the car. Also I think the back seat should have a strip of carpet on the bottom face. I don't know how wide through. Maybe the same height as the door panels. Any confirmation and correct photos would be appreciated. Thanks

Your back seat should also have the ribs. Sounds like the back seat has been recovered. Which Ford book are you using for reference regarding the ribs?

The first & second photo is a seat from either a Tudor or a business coupe. Without seeing the bottom the seat, I can't be certain exactly which it is.
Regardless, this seat is covered in the deluxe stitching pattern.
There is only two sets of "ribs" on a split back seat in the closed car models.
The third seat remains a mystery to me and will continue to be without photos from the opposite sides.

The book I referred to was "the 1940 Ford book". Sound like the front seat is correct but the rear is not. Should the rear have a carpet kick on the lower front on the rear seat? Thanks

I'd like to see the rear seat from different angles. Does it fit your car? If so, obviously it's correct.
Yes, carpet along the bottom. Well, not really carpet but the same stuff as the bottom of the door panels.
How about a photo of the front seat from underneath?
