  • Dumb question on removing rear seat back...

    ..on a '63 "J".

    Car is in a buddy's garage for winter storage, and I'm in Baltimore with work! I want to poke around soon and see if I can see a reason why my quarters seem to shake when the doors are closed...wanna look for possible broken welds, etc. Car was restored to be driven a decade and a little more ago, and still looks very nice, but this bugs me a bit.

    I know the rear seat cushion just lifts out; does the back do that too or not? Sittin' here being curious about that!

    Thanks,

    Bill,
    There are two metal straps that extend down from the bottom of the seat back. These straps are secured to the floor pan with a sheet metal screw. With the screws removed push (you may need to bump it lightly with the heal of your hand or a rubber mallet)the seat up to release it from two tabs that extend out from the metal supports between the passenger compartment and the trunk. There two steel loops on the back of the seat that fit down into the tabs. (At least that's the way it works on a 1962 "L" body.)

      Thank you Dan. Shortly after I posted the question, I seemed to remember a couple "loops" at the bottom of the seat back. Thanks for your thoughtful reply!
