Re: 63 Gal Bench Seat Relocation
I want to share my latest findings on my 63 bench seat move back to accommodate my very long legs. Its amazing how these things pop up. I saw a clean set of 63 Gal bench seat brackets on Ebay for 10 bucks plus shipping. Picture of the drivers side Ebay bracket below. My seat is out of the car sitting on saw horses now. I thought I should buy the brackets just in case I needed to cut them up for parts when engineering the seat move.
Turns out the Ebay brackets are identical in every way BUT both the front and back support pedestal that bolt to the floor are each 1/2 inch shorter/lower than the brackets on my seat now. I can only figure that there is some combination of height difference between a 2door, 4 door, or convertible bench seats. Please note there was close to an inch of space between the seat bottom and the floor hump, so the seat could easily sit 1/2 inch lower.
So remembering that I have the larger diameter steering wheel that came on non power steering cars. Then the highest seat bracket. That goes a long way in understanding why I fit in my old 63 and don't fit in my latest 63. Any thoughts??????
