Does anyone know if 1967 seat covers will fit a 1965 seat frame? I know the foam padding is different and will have to be changed but I wonder if there is any actual difference in how the seat material fits on the seat frame. The supply houses list the plastic 67 seat backs differently from the 66-67 seat.

wildmandon ... if you need any pics of '67 seat frames or measurements, I might be able to help you. I’m right in the middle of restoring my ‘67’s. Just got the frames back from being cleaned up so I will probably start the actual part of putting the new foam and covers back on this coming week.

My failing memory tells me that the the '67 seats have a release leaver to allow the back to go foreword.

Good memory 00fxd ... there is a cutout on the seat back cover for the lever which is on the outside of each seat.

Thanks guys. I knew about the release lever. If I use the 65 plastic seat backs I guess the lever on the 67 seat back would be irrelevant.
I appreciate the help.
