Fold Down Rear Seat
« on: March 31, 2011, 12:18:27 AM »
Can a fold down rear seat set up be used in a 1969 Camaro Convertible.  I have never seen one but have the chance to get one for nothing from a buddy who is chopping his up to race.

to the best of my knowledge, it does not fit. but if you can get it for free take it! make sure you get the brkts that are welded to the floor.

Yes, RPO A67 (Folding Rear Seat) was an option on both the 67-69 Camaro Coupe and Convertible.

it fits a LOT better than a coupe because the arm rests are already there! :) Make sure you get all the parts!  welded floor brackets, back fiberboard panel and welded metal channel, Arm rests and filler panels, the latch, bumpers and bumper plate (screwed on the body) and the two seats of course.  the coupe backer panel is a little shorter that a verts, but since you have to weld in the channel, you can make it work. the vert panel is not reproed AFAIK.

Any drawbacks to having the folding seat?

Other than the cost?  none that I see.  For verts it has an added bonus!  When carting around those pagent girls with their high heels, they can rest them on the folded down seat back instead of the vinyl :D

No, the 67 is different than the 68-69.

He's referring to the Partition Track or "holder" that holds the cardboard partition in place.

Fold down pictures HERE. (The Paritition Track is just above the Floor Brackets in the pictures.)
