Are the seats bench seat in front, or are they bucket seats? If they are bench seats, they are upholstered with simple flat foam rubber, the thickness is determined by the original thickness, bucket seats may be matched up with seats from a more common model that would have form fitted cushions.

Gerald's description is accurate, this was the only configuration in the '65 Monaco. For just the foam, seats from a Polara 500 should be the same. For the '66 model year, the Monaco became the Monaco 500. Interior dimensions were the same as the '65 models, so foam from those seats should also fit, along with those from the '66 Polara 500. I don't know if seats in the Chrysler 300 were the same size, but even if they were slightly larger, you might be able to trim the foam to fit. Again, bucket seats in the '65 and '66 300 models were essentially the same.

A few years back I owned a 65 Dodge Polara 500 which is rarer than the Monaco. It had bucket seats and a console like the B bodies. A lot of people didn't even know is existed.

That's a beauty, PJ.

The OP also mentioned rear seats. I think that configuration ended with the '65 model year, as the console ended just behind the front seats from '66 on. However, the '64 models with buckets and console had similar rear seats. There was no Monaco then, and the '64 Polara rode a shorter wheelbase. The letter 300 rear seats should be similar, as should those of the base 300 with front bucket seats. Someone else might have information as to what other models and years have similar rear seats.
