Recently acquired this seat.
possibly a B-36 Navigators seat, But I can find no matching photo of it. 
Part number on base OP-2166
Seat base swivels but does not go up and down. 
Anybody can confirm what it is from? 

Note the seat belts are dated April 1964, so it was most likely flying on an aircraft in 1964

Also it may be available for sale if anybody really wants it for a reasonable offer

Dave, do not think its a B-36 unless maybe a really early model. There is also no adjustment mechanisms. It also looks very lightly built and would be unable withstand any impact. If you go to the Air Force museum website it is possible to take a 360 degree view of the interior of a B-36. It does not match any seats I saw there. I think it is the correct time period but would lean towards an IP or IN seat (at least some sort of temporary crew member). For what its worth! Cheers Ray
