1967 Metal Seatbacks
« on: February 07, 2014, 08:46:19 PM »
Does anyone have or can get the dimensions of the upper hook on the seatback for the metal back on 67 seats?  I need dimensions of the bracket and of its location.  Thanks, Darrell

Stole this from another members post.   ;D

 Here 'ya go. Let me know if you need anything else. The seat is out of the car so it's easy to get any info you may need.

 Hi Darrell,
   Here are more measurements. I left the fractions as is (ex: 6/16 instead of 3/8).
Are you looking to fabricate these?

Hi Darrell,

  I have an email pending a reply from a place I bought from in the past with odds-n-end parts.
I'll PM you with their reply regardless if they have the brackets or not and pass the contact info to you.
Not sure if they will reply today so it may be Monday.

Stay tuned....
Mike

Nice work Darrell!  Please pardon me for interrupting your thread, but I was just thinking that some members might need metal seat backs & I have a few in storage that I have no use for.  They are NOT perfect, but PM me if you need some.  I have no idea what they are worth - just trying to get them back on a car that needs them!  Moderators - just eliminate this post if I'm violating a rule - I don't usually sell stuff - just thought I could help someone.
