   I hear that the Metal Backs on the 67 Bucket seats were only used on earlier production cars.  Anyone know when the switch was done?  My 11A LOS built Coupe has the Metal ones.

Kurts #9 reply....Metal vs. plastic seat backs: Transition appears to occur during mid-April or possibly first week of May

My 4B LOS and 5B NOR have the metal backs (these can knock you out if they slam back!   Tongue ) so maybe the transition was late May.
They are in great shape but one in the NOR car has a minor ding in that I wish I could get out.

Mike S >>>>>>,
  Mine had some minor dings in them too.  Luckily, I have a nephew who is the manager of a Body Shop, and a lot of patience.  He used, like a plastic punch, and a 6 in. long X 1 in. dia. Wood Dowel to "tap" them out.  Did a great job.

Hmmm...that is a good idea. I will ty the dowel method and see how it works.

Thanks for that idea!
