    When you pry up the rear of the seat, you change the leg room between the steering wheel and your legs. You also change the pitch of the seat cushion.

    I have been futzing around with tons of combinations, and have yet to find one seating position that is good for both Ellen and myself.

    There is also a difference in seating position between cars with and without Power Seats. The angle of the seat cushion tilts further backward and upward with PS over manual seats.

      Were these placed under the carpet to hide them, or just on top of the carpet by the factory?

        My 62 had wooden blocks under the front seats, and has a wooden block spacing the parking brake handle from the dashboard. I replaced the wooden blocks under the seats with grade 8 bolts and grade 8 fender-washers. Don't need the seats going anywhere.

          Why would the factory bother shimming seats? Seems like more of a customer preference than anything else. Sounds like something more that a dealer would do for a customer.
