Convertible and Folding Seats
« on: December 26, 2013, 04:02:19 AM »
I recently bought a 1967 Camaro SS 350 with convertible top and folding rear seat option. When the rear seat is folded, there is no trunk partition. Rather, it is just bare metal.  I have checked many sites to look for a trunk partition, but they only state that the partitions are not for folding rear seats.  Is this correct?

I thought that part was for the back of the seat itself.  I was looking for something to cover the bare metal frame that is part of the trunk. (If that makes sense  :-\)

Resjud, I recently was going to install an original seat divider panel I bought but found out it was for a convertible not a coupe. Below is a picture of the back side showing how it was glued on without screws along the top. The coupe panel is shorter than the convertible. They definitely reproduce both coupe & convertible divider panels. George

The back of the upper fold-down seat has bound carpet glued to it.  That fiberboard covers the structure that separates the trunk from the passenger compartment.  You should have a metal gutter like this on that structure near the floor, that the bottom of the fiberboard sits in:

If you scroll down on this link you'll see how it goes together:

Thanks a bunch. Yes, the car has a gutter at the bottom, and thus why I thought it was odd that it would just have bare metal.  I now know what to look for.  :)
