From what I recall of a friend's GP, the plywood seat bases look original or at least pretty well duplicated at some point.The bow brackets are as original.Original steering wheel/columns were 39 Ford units.Is the original carb present?

Your seats and the seat wood is correct. did they cut the top bracket for the pintle hook ? I see the cover is cut out on your rear floor. if your floor is shot this cover comes with the rear floor. Your top bow bracket still has the thumbscrew in it, before removing make sure the pin is not in the screw. this will mess up your threads when removing them.

It would be on the bottom of the thumbscrew with a hole through the threads. This was so the thumbscrew would not thread out and fall out.
