  • 2 Door wagon 2nd row seats Help!

    Does anyone have a picture of the second row seat floorboard area and how the seats mount. I have a set anne Goodman gave me but they do not work. i believe they are for a later model.

    Cleaned all the tar and glue off the floor area and there appears to be something missing. Is there a strip or bracket spot welded there?

    All of the early back seats mount the same, at least from 54 to 60.
    I know this because I have a 54, a 55, a 59 and a 60. All two door wagons.

    No, the seats don't mount to the floor. They mount to brackets comming off of the floor (rear) support and the fender well. The bottom of the seat just rests on the foward floor support. This is so it can lift to be able to get at the bumper jack.

      Thanks,Stude Rich solved the mystery by pointed out what was missing and Barnlark sent a picture. Seems that the PO before the PO i aquired it from, removed the seat box that goes on the floor for some reason. Guess that's why the original seat was missing. So other than the studs for the back seat, the bracket that goes on the lower seat board, and the lower hinge. I'm also missing all the rest of the bits pieces. Looks like i'll have to go sedan delivery unless i come upon a parts car along the way.

        Would a '63 wagon have the parts you need? I know where there is one being parted out (hopefully not too late.......

          I don't know if they fit or not i'm not Lark bright. Will know more when i get to ceder rapids and pick up some books.

          From what i can see after cleaning the gunk off the floor board the box seems to have been spot welded to the floor so it would be a bit of work to remove it from a parts car.

          Of course the other factor is i live in Az. I guess the first step would to see if the car is still around and go from there.
          regards

            I just love that saying "Lark Bright" we just have to start a Stude dictionary so that we can compile all these neat sayings.

                  BTW Bridgeguard, could you fab up something else to do the same job? I noticed in my wagon all they do is suport the bottom half of the seat, so maybe you could make something work, even if it isnt correct looking.

                    Thanks, the piece i am missing is the seat box shown in picture 15 (third row down on the right) I was using Lark Stupid but i thought i'd go PC due to slobolian pride and switched to not Lark Bright.

                    Only have a few days before i moved the Midge to storage till after i get back from Guam in Oct.

                      If i can't find what i need, i will either do that or turn it into a sedan delivery.
