Hi guys, 1st time poster,
              Was sent here via a OZ website to see if you can help here. I have these seats out of my 67 [dont know if they are the orig or not]. I know there was a change-over date from steel to plastic seatbacks. My Q to you is, can I use plastic covers on these seats in the pix?

 cheers Dave

I'm not a 67 expert, but I believe either seatback will work on a 67 seat.

I am certainly not an expert, but if you are going for originality, my 67 built in October of '66 (10B @ trim tag) has steel backs, and are original to the car.

FWIW I just talked with my upholstery man and he said the plastic reproduction backs for these seats fit great and worked well on a job he just finished. He's been in the business about 45 years and does super work.

FWIW
  The lower seat back in your pictures appears to have an issue at the second from the bottom cross spring, which may need to be addressed as well.

Your seats require the metal seatbacks due to the single mounting tab at the top. The plastic backs use two tabs one on each outer corner. The plastic backs will not interchange with your seats without modification to your backs. Attached is a picture of a pair of 68 Firebird seat backs showing the two mounting tabs. These are the same for all mid-67 thru 70 F-bodies, and mid-67 thru 69 Corvairs. The repro plastic seatbacks are marginal at best, but when you have nothing they are better than what you have. I know of one interior manufacturer that has been working hard to duplicate them exactly as original but it will be a long time before they ever make it into production...............RatPack....................

Whew! Thankfully I said I don't know much about 67's.
Thanks Troy! I had no idea there were differences. But it makes sense the vinyl would need more support.
